It's nice to see a video about Ison from a rational mind.

Well for seeing ISON in the eyepiece I would recommend a dobsonian telescope. Orion makes some good dobsonians, buy the largest you can afford. If portability is an issue, buy a truss tube dobsonian. Orion makes some, but they're all larger scale and higher price. Meade's lightbridge scopes are cheaper but probably don't meet the definition of "cheap."

It depends on what magnifications you want to achieve and what you're willing to spend. My "best" eyepiece is probably my 1.25" 9mm Televue Nagler, but I frequently use a 2" 25mm panoptic knock-off as well. If you want the very best quality eyepieces I would stick with Televue eyepieces. I had the pleasure of viewing through a few Ethos eyepieces this past weekend and it was incredible, but of course the quality of the view is also dictated by the telescope you're using it with. My philosophy on that is that you can take your eyepieces with you when upgrade your telescope, so why not start collecting high quality from the beginning?

Thank You for your time Astro! What is the best eyepiece to use to look at Ison, Leo should be in my field of view soon I am pretty sure? Im western PA area. I have been out a few times with scope and had a blast with it. This is a brand new hobby for me and I am getting into it. unfortunately my local astronomy club disbanded so I am on my own to figure everything out. There is so much to learn and I just want to hve a good basic setup to learn the sky. I was not able to make out any nebulas my last time out with my stock 9mm eyepiece, but the moon was so bright, any advice? Thank You so much for helping me out again!

Re: Comet Ison is 3 days ahead of JPL model!!
Astro, if i was to buy one expensive televue should it be the 1.25" 9mm. Sounds like that is the one you like. I found one for about 315.00 on amazon. Do you like the celestron 130slx? I just recently ordered vibration pads because seems tripod is shaky. Any more thoughts. Sorry for bugging you but its nice to talk with a pro about my new found hobby.

Re: Comet Ison is 3 days ahead of JPL model!!
my take on all this is that ISON has to be a mothership cloaked
in a stealth shroud to make it look like a comet, as
it swings around the Sun on it's approach to earth.

(and, being 3 days ahead of the JPL model can only mean that
the damn thing obviously has it's own propulsion system!)

I would use a widefield eyepiece to acquire ISON; that way you can more easily compare its position to surrounding stars and be sure that what you are looking at is in fact ISON. A 25mm eyepiece or thereabouts should do nicely.
