What do I really get from a 2" ocular and star diag. versus a 1 1/4 inch one. Field of view is determined by focal length, the fov of the ocular, so do I get more using a 2" ocular or only more eye relief? I am thinking about upgrading and i have looked thru 2" setups on much larger scopes (16" and 20" cass. vs. my 10") and the views were great. But I don't know if that was because of the scopes or the oculars.

Thanks
