Optimum Eyepiece Recommendation for Lunt 152THa/DSII

Post by SpaceAholic » Fri Aug 18, 2017 5:27 pm

First dedicated solar rig on order...152THa/DS2 with B3400

Any recommendations on EP for viewing sessions? Looking at Ethos series (perhaps the 21mm if it can pull in whole solar disc views)..anybody onboard with experience using the 152 visually - what EP's have you found worked best for you (and in particularly offer good views of the entire disc).

Thanks -
Scott

You'll find much better views with simpler eyepeices. I use TV plossls in Ha.

What size/FOV are appropriate based on the setup I have ordered (particularly if I want to suck in a view of the entire disc?)
