    I have decided to invest in a nagler no.6 eye piece mainly to get my curious 25mm pocket Borg refractor to work with a star diagonal.the scope has a focal length of 175mm which means plossil eye pieces won't focus with a star diagonal, although they will when using it as a direct through and through telescope but this makes looking high up a challenge,that or a very very high tripod. I had tried increasing the focal length using a Celestron stubby Barlow but it makes the who scope unstable,you have the scope itself,the Barlow,the star diagonal and the eye piece and it worried me that a part could fall out and break . it's reported that the pocket Borg can bear magnification up to 58x enough to show the cloud bands of Jupiter.

    Due to the expensive price of the nagler I chickened out and decided to try a much cheaper Skywatcher planetry eyepiece 9mm.however I haven't been able to test it yet due to me and the eye piece being in one place and the telescope being in another although I should unite them on Sunday! I'm told that the Skywatcher planetry eyepieces have some kind of built in Barlow but I see no evidence of this and it is of a similar length to a normal plossil. I think that the box claimed that it's a super possil?not the end of the world if it doesn't work with the star diagonal in the pocket Borg as I can use it in my larger scopes or in the Borg without the diagonal for objects lower down.
