: Okay, : You all helped me on my counter weight problem for my 6" DOB. Now what eyepiece? A Nagler 100x with apparent FOV of .82 . Or a Panoptic 80x with apparent FOV of .85 . I mostly view Nebulas. I'm looking for any advice, suggestions, or ideas about any wide field eyepiece. Both good and bad. I hate to spend this money for it to be disappointed.

: TJ I agree with Robert May. The University Optics Koenig-II eyepieces are better than Plossl's and very well priced. They outperform most commercially available eyepieces, regardless of price.
