I should have mentioned I don't have a preference to what type of observing I plan to do; anything from planetary to DSO's. I don't know if that means much when it comes to EP's.

Cool, thanks for this, casstony
. I've just checked their site. Have they come a long way since the quaint little shop in the Mid-City Arcade, Melbourne, in the 1980's? I'll ring them next week.
I've been advised that Nagler's are suited for Dobsonians. Is there any truth in this or just a sales pitch?
