We have bought the Starview 70AZ Telescope from Australian Geogrpahic and want to look across the bay. The supplied PL20mm lense doesn't given us enough of a view at a distance and we wonder if we need to buy the 26mm or 40mm or a multi-focus adjustable lense to get more clarity across Port Phillip Bay. Can you advise please. Many thanks
If you are wanting an eyepiece to give you more magnification you will need something smaller then a 25mm as the bigger you go the less magnification you get, the smaller the eyepiece the more magnification you get allowing you to see further.
You should be looking at a 10mm eyepiece or a 2 x Barlow lens which doubles the magnification
Hi just wondering which eyepiece (just a cheap one) to get for my 8" skywatchers dobsonian telescope. For the larger (2"?) barrel? It came with 1.25inch eyepieces.
Good morning Misha
thanks for your email.
We don't sell many 2'' eyepieces as they aren't very common, please see the 2'' eyepieces below
Celestron 40mm E-Lux 2" Plossl Eyepiece
Celestron 32mm E-Lux 2" Plossl Eyepiece
these are the two we have which are our cheapest, all our other 2'' ones are $300 +
Any size will work, it just changes how much you see.
So the 40mm will give you less magnification than a 25mm but a wider field of view.
It doesn't matter if the brand is skywatcher or saxon or celestron.
