Visually all the 2" eyepieces mentioned above would work in either the 10" or 12" Dobs but the balance of the 10" may be affected, some of these EP's are over 1kg in weight - OK with the 12" but Iain has a counterweight fitted to the base of his 10" flextube.


I hadn't really given much thought to the weight side of the EPs Lorne, the Heritage has a rail along its length so you can adjust that for heavier eyepieces, but the bigger Dobs sit in a type of cradle eh?  Something else to think about :-)
