I JUST GOT ONE AND WAS WONDERING WHAT THE BEST SET UP WOULD BE:


TELEPOD WITH SKY TOUR OR PANORAMIC MOUNT?

EYEPEICES FOR WIDE FIELD AND PLANETARY?

EVERBRITE 1 1/4 DIAGONAL?

TV ZOOM EYEPIECES?

tHANKS!

Hello Dean.
I had a TV-60 for quite a while.
Though it worked quite well on a regular camera tripod
with a video head, I really liked it on a TelePod.
I'd definitely recommend a 24mm Panoptic for max wide field,
and a 2-4mm Nagler zoom for high power.
For mid range, I used T6 Naglers, usually a 9 or 11mm.
Nice little scope! Have fun with it! grin

It's a tad too small to be much of a planetary scope wink But...I use Radians from 18mm up to 3mm with my TV60mm. My travel version consists of (a) 24mm TV WF (out of production) (b) 9mm Nagler (c) 4mm Radian. I've 2x Barlowed a 3mm Radian before- actually very decent image on Saturn and Jupiter. The Everbrite sky diagonal works very well.
