I am buying a 10" Europa reflector soon which comes with 2 eyepieces, 9mm & 25mm. The problem is they are Kellner! I dont know much but from what ive heard these are not so great! So im looking for replacement ones, so far i have been interested in the following;

Super Plossl:
10mm 79
20mm OR 26mm 69
32mm 75

-Are these good pieces/prices?

-It is alot of money in total, would i be better with the cheeper Orthoscopic ones (About 50) or is the extra price noticable in the quality?

-I would like to buy one piece at the same time as the scope, concidering it comes with poor 9mm & 25mm, what would you recomend (Size/make?).

-Any Barlow recomendations? I dont mind paying alot for this as it seems like i may use it often!

-I would like one 'nice' piece possibly Lanthanums (100>130). If i get one what size would be most rewarding, 9ish for nice clear planetry views or 25ish for clear wide views?

-Is there any point getting a piece smaller than 9mm with my scope or will it just get blury?

-Is there any point getting anything over 32mm?

I know i should wait to see what suits me but i would still like guideance and suggestions.

Cheers, Ben.

Also, if you have nothing better to do, look at the post i did the other day (Nobody replied!) about my choice of scope.

Nice one ;)
