Start by getting a 17mm first. Why? When the scope is ready for first light, the 17mm will enable you to see a little more deepsky. These are good EP`s for Dobs for a first time. If you can get a 25,26mm & 17mm and a 2x Barlow with will in essence give 4 EP`s. Try Orion first or better see if either you can go to a telescope store that sells Celestron or order them. Get Plossls, not Kellners! Orion has affordable Plossl EP`s called Sirius. They are $50 a piece. They have them in 26mm and 17mm and several others too. Try the 17mm first, then later get a 26mm. Just build up your equipment optics as you go. Good Luck!!
