As with any hobby, there's never any shortage of choices for accessories and amateur astronomy is no different. There are mount designs galore to choose from, but which ones are best?

In this hangout, Tony Darnell, Adam (Synergy) Smith and John Suffill help you navigate these issues. Learn about the best eyepieces for observing the planets, deep-sky objects and more. We'll also go into the topic of field of view and magnification.
