I own a Celestron C102HD. I've seen in ads that for planetary viewing, nothing beats an orthoscopic eyepiece. I love my Pentax 7mm 65 deg but a 5.2 Pentax costs 3 times as much as a 5mm orthoscopic. Disregarding cost, and 80% use on planetary viewing / 20% on galaxies & deep space, which eyepiece would you purchase?
