Re: [William Optics] Need some advice about my M110ED
Yes, you can use M110ED for visual planetary, but I think that it is better to have a low focal eyepiece (I use vixen LV series down to 6mm (the best almost all the time) & 5mm (when good steady air)). Sometimes I use 2x barlow and LV 9mm (so equivalent to 4.5 mm) but only when air is very very steady (rare). More power is useless: you don't have more details because of 110mm aperture and image is like a moving blob that give you a stomach ache!
Have clear sky!

Hi all. I purchased a used but immaculate m110ed and plan to use for visual observing only.. Has anyone had any experience using a barlow with this scope? Just wondering if I could get some good results for some planetary viewing... Would a 3X be pushing the scope too far? Suggestions please! Thanks.
