Greetings to all stargazers! I am a happy owner of a Newtonian telescope 200/1200 on Dobson mount, more detailed specifications on this link (http://skywatcher.com/product/dob-8-traditional/). It has a 2” focuser with a 1.25” adapter. So far, I was using only the two included eyepieces, 1.25” diameter : Plossl 52° 25mm and Plossl 52° 10mm. Indeed I’ve observed lot of beautiful objects (planets, star clusters, nebulas and few galaxies), but as I live in a suburb, the nightsky is not that dark as I’d like. To improve my observations of nebulas and galaxies, I am considering to buy a filter. Also I’d like to buy the planetary filters + polarizing filter for more comfortable observing of the Moon. And barlow lens of course too. That is quite lot of accessories, and before I spend my money, I need to decide whether I keep using 1.25” or will switch to 2” barrel size, or maybe mix of both. Unfortunately, I don’t know anybody in my area using 2”, so I cannot actually try it directly and to have my own experience. The main advantage of 2” would be to get wide field of view. The main disadvantage is that eyepieces and filters cost more. Do you guys have an experience with using 2” eyepieces in similar telescopes? Would you recommend it? Buying and using two sets of eyepieces+accessories. e.g. 1.25” for planets and 2” for nebulas and galaxies seems to be quite costly solution – but maybe you have other experience and a good strategy can be applied. For example, the planetary filters will be most useful for eyepieces with shorter length, esg. my existing Plossl 10mm, i.e. 1.25” fitting. The opposite might be true for nebula filters. Many thanks for your opinions and recommendations!
