Joined EMS today.


Recently purchased a Celestron CPC 1100 GPS XLT.


The eyepeice supplied is somewhat poor, any suggestions on what eyepeices I should go for ?


I'm currently looking at a Meade 5000 Plossl 40mm 2"


Cheers

Hi welcome to EMS.


 


Stick a hello up in the welcome section - were a friendly bunch who just love to say hello :)


 


EP's are a very personnel choice, what one person loves, others will hate.


 


Generally thought the Meade's are good, also depends on your budget as to what people will recommend, if money is no object have a look at some Televues, just about the best money can buy.

Hi Richard,


 


Welcome to ems. Great scope, love big scts. Having a long focal length means that your scope is forgiving on eps.


 


Daz correct above the Televues, posh pentax and wide angle explore scientific explorers are wonderful. Budget bst explorers at c£50 a pop are great value, one step up the baader Hyperions (c£100). Then into the televue, wide angle meades etc.


 


Buy as best you can afford with a wide angle to get that spacewalk effect!!.


 


Cheers

As you know because of the telescope design you need to go big.

 

If you want the best then I would go:

 

1. Televue 41mm Panoptic

2. Televue 31mm Nagler.

 

Exactly what I am saving for, for use with a C9.25. :)

Fabulous scope Richard - 2.8 meter focal length is just mad. Both the eyepieces above would be terrific in for large objects - and going the other way a 12mm to 16mm for honing in on planets would compliment very nicely on a clear night with good transparency. You'll be looking at around 230x mag plus and you'll get superb views with a Meade 5000 or Nagler in that range. :)
