Lens Help please....

Postby akadus on Thu Jul 15, 2004 5:30 am

I just got a Meade ETX-90AT Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope, needles to say I'm a total novice.

Need some help in picking the right range of lens and other accessories.
Can anyone guide me in the right direction???
Many thanks,

New Delhi, India.

Telescope Eyepieces

Postby Stan @ Opticsplanet on Thu Jul 15, 2004 1:51 pm

Thank you for your interest in The ETX-90 comes with a 26mm Super plossl eyepiece. Rather than just get the most powerful eyepiece available, I'd suggest stepping up slowly. The next eyepiece to look for would be a 15mm, and then a 5 or 6mm for high magnification. Just the three eyepieces should let you do about anything you would need with that scope. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.
Best Regards,
Stan Mack
