I use Celestron Plossel eyepieces with 52 degree view. They run about $52 a piece. But there are others. Try Orion, they have decent eyepieces. Also try your local area, camera shops, telescope stores, etc... ask for 1.25" plossels. I assume you have a 1.25 receptical for your scope. As for books, The Backyard Astromers Guide (Hardcover) and Nightwatch (large softcover) are very good books that discuss astronomy in general and telescope info and also astrophotography. They both discuss in detail of types and needs for telescopes and helps you understand what accessories will do for you. Have fun and good luck. Give me a holler if you need more answers. Clear Skies!!
