FWIW, i have a 10-inch Newt, and amongst other things a 7mm Nagler EP.

This is an f4.5 scope, in a location with bad seeing, plus i am a total newbie. However, FWIW, i regard my 7mm Nagler as a waste of money for this particular scope. Given my time over, i would save up some extra $$$ and get one of the bigger Naglers, round 20-25mm. These scopes work much better with mid to low power eyepieces.

I also have a 15mm Panoptic and i use it far more than any other eyepiece. Just wish Santa would bring me one of those there 19mm Panoptics.
