Ok here is probably another dumb question...But....If I dont ask them I wont have the answers...
So.. I am the owner of a 4.5" telescope(wont go into brand names)long unhappy, but seeing all the pitures of planets and things I was under the impression (false at that) that views would be clear crisp and LARGE....Well, I now know the views are not Large...really rather small. The telescope I have has .965 or something like that eye is the question...Does the view get bigger with the larger 1.25 and larger eye pieces if so how much.... the bigger the image in my dob I plan to build would be the better and I know I will have at least a 1.25 eye piece for it, but am wondering about a two inch, I could always get the 2" with the 1.25 adapter,does the view get larger with the larger eye pieces, thats the question?
