Revelation 2" 42mm Eyepiece ?

Hi Guys

Thinking of purchasing a Revelation 2" 42mm Eyepiece for use in my Meade 8" SCT.

This will give me a 48X magnification and with the 65 degree eyepiece App FOV should give me 1.37 degs of arc FOV.

Has anyone any experience of this eyepiece with an 8" f/10 SCT ?

Your comments would be much appreciated.

Setting up my new reflector scope

Hi, i have a refractor scope which was pretty simple to set up and have now just bought my first reflector telescope. Its a Jessops TA1100-102 MK2. Now this might be a silly question so please don't flame me as i am new to this scope but it has a big cap on the bottom of the telescope, should i remove this cap when in use or is this just for maintenance?
Thanks Mike

8se still a good choice?

Hi so a year ago I posted on here for some telescope advice, the help I got was great but I decided to leave it a while for various reasons. The 8se seems to be reviewed very well but hasn't there been anything new/better released that is an alternative?

Eyepieces for WO Binoviewer

Hi Guys

Having just acquired a secondhand WO Binoviewer complete with 2off 20mm WA eyepieces I was wondering whether to purchase a 2nd Skywatcher 32mm SP Plossl eyepiece to give me a larger FOV and less magnification. (I already own one of the 32mm eyepieces)

Has anyone used 32mm eyepieces in a binoviewer with an SCT , if so , what are your opinions ?
