Guru Al's New Eyepiece Article

Sky and Telescope has posted a new(?) article by Al Nagler:

http://skyandtelescope.com/printable/howto/visualobserving/article_1673.asp

TeleVue also has a link on their website.

Comments: Al contends that a 7mm exit pupil is optimal, and that a telescope's highest power conforms to 50x per inch of aperture.
