**Thu Feb 25, 2010 11:26 pm** Could Anybody Help Me Decide Which New eyepeice To Get For My SKYWATCHER SKY-HAWK 1145PM....

Ive Been Using It For About a Month Now And I Would Like To Buy a New Eye Peice To Give a Little Bit More Magnifcation To See Saturn In More Detail Than I Already Can....

I Have a 10mm, 25mm And A 2x Barlow At The Moment... And The Maximum Magnification With My 10mm + 2x Barlow = 100x (I Belive)

Apparently The Maximum Useful Mag Is 220x And I Would Like to Try And Get As Close Toi That As I Could, Im A TOTAL NEWBIE To Using Telescopes Soo Some Help From Someone A Bit More Knowlageable Would Be Greatly Appriciated! [:D]

These Are The Stats Of The Telescope [:D]

114mm f/500 Motorised Parabolic Newtonian Reflector

Magnification (with supplied optics):

x20, x40, x80 & x100

Highest practical power (potential): x228

Diameter of primary mirror: 114mm

Telescope focal length: 500mm

Eyepieces supplied: 10mm & 25mm

X2 Barlow lens

RA motor drive (DC)

Parabolic primary mirror

0.5mm ultra-thin secondary mirror supports

Red dot finder

EQ1 equatorial mount

Aluminium tripod with accessory tray

125% more light gathering than 76mm

Thanks :D
