Eyepieces wanted please .....

Postby stargate » Sun Apr 05, 2009 6:16 pm

Hi Everyone

I am looking for some eyepieces that would suit a Celestron C8-N .

Maybe the Celestron Eyepiece kit or something , i have been told
the C8-N can use either 1 + 1/4 inch, or 2 inch eyepieces as the scope
comes with an adapter so that you could use the 2 inch eyepieces too.


Thank you for reading

Personally i LIKE the Celestron EP kit because i have one and for me it works well (most of it). It's cheap enough and the quality (IMHO) of the EP's is very good for the price. I have to say i have never tried any other EP so i really cant comment on the the best etc. It really boils down to budget.

If you go for the Celestron kit (or any other kit) and like it, GREAT. If you dont like it and want to sell it....................there is a market out there for these kits. There is always a person new to astronomy looking to buy one.

But rather then sell it and only get half your money back.........................the kits really are worth keeping cuz you will use it.

The Meade EP kit recently won the review in Sky@night magazine. I think they were a few ££ more then Celestron. Then there is the Zhumell EP kit which is for all intent purposes the same kit as the Celestron and is a few ££ cheaper.

Overal they are all about the same and good value for money.
