On 8" f/6 scopes I use only a 25mm and a 17mm with a TV powermate 2x barlow. I also use a 9mm Nagler without barlow...most of the time. Basically your scope can do 400x, but in my experience, 300x is better suited.

The red caps means that you have a cookie stored on your system when you log on identifying you. If you were to erase the cookie, the red caps goes away. When you log on as your user name...another cookie is placed on your system. I don't mind it...kind of helpful. Have fun with the new scope.
