I have just ordered my first scope, its an Orion Optics (UK) Europa 10" reflector f4.8. It comes with two EPs, a 9mm and 25mm but they are Kellners! I dont mind using them for a few weeks but i want to get a decent set as soon as possible.

If you had this scope what 3 eyepieces would you get. Im looking to get two for around 80 and one 'nice' one for around 150 (i dont know what this is in $).

The place i'm looking to get them from seems v.expensive 75 for a super Plossl 32mm, this seems alot (or am i just tight!!!) but there arnt many UK sites selling them.

-Any EP recomendations?
-What should i expect to pay?
-Anyone know a good UK based site to buy from?

Please help!!!

Ben.
