10" Dobsonian - Orion Orion 8946 SkyQuest XT10
« on: December 28, 2017, 02:28:31 AM »
I just clicked the buy button on this scope, it will be here Wednesday ! And so will the clouds ! Yay ! I'm pretty excited about it.

Eyepiece question:
I have an Explore Scientific 24mm 68* eyepiece, and the scope comes with a 25mm Sirius Plossl. It is also capable of 1.25" and 2" EPs as well. So would a 14mm 82* EP be a good choice to add to my collection ? I want to only buy the best EPs I can possibly buy going forward.
I already have a bunch of EPs that came with the various scopes I have. So I am currently looking at Explore Scientific EPs for the most part, and maybe down the road get TVs or Panoptics or the like.

Woohoo, come on Wednesday !
