I`m just about to buy a 10" LX200 f6.3 and I`m wondering about eyepieces for planetary viewing.

I want nice big images packed with detail, obviously I`m going to have to compromise a bit but what do you suggest. How big will the image of (say) Jupiter be and will a barlow be a good idea to get a longer focal length?

I live on the edge of the Kalahari desert and internet access is difficult so please email your reply to me at

Thanks very much,
