Hello, speaking of meads and eyepieces, I'm looking for info on what power is reasonable for the mead reflector 4.5 inch (f/8) 900mm focal lenth tube? It came with a 25mm eyepiece. Its easy to find objects but my Son and I are a little disappointed at the resolution for the price.(should have gotten a larger dobs.)Does anyone know what minimum focal length it could handle? I'm new, don't want to overspend and end up with just a larger but blurry immage.

Found out about this club talking to a fellow at 'the old town alehouse' in ballard. Forgot his name, but thanks much if you read this!

Thanks for any info John
