Our eyepiece collection is very compact. Eye relief is a priority so we have the following EP's which suit our needs. Four out of the five EP'S also have adjustable eyecups which we find invaluable.

Panoptic 27mm
Nagler 17mm T4
Pentax 10mm XW
Pentax 7mm XW
Burgess TMB 5mm
Orion 2" Deluxe 2 x Barlow

We use the 27mm Pano as our finder EP. The Nagler 17mm is our most used EP.It's amazing on large nebula, global clusters and galaxies the detail very sharp and very good contrast and the 82 degree FOV is a WOW The Pentax 10mm is wonderful with dark contrast and very good for finer detail of DSO's. The Pentax 7mm is very good for extra magnification on Planetary Nebula, Clusters, Planetary and Lunar. The Burgess 5mm is our only pure planetary EP very sharp and good contrast. The Orion Barlow gives us 13.5mm when used with the 27 Pano and 8.5mm when used with the 17 Nagler giving us a wide range of focal lengths with just a minimum number of EP's.

We purchased all of these EP's on recommendation from IIS members on the forum and have never been disappointed with any of them.
