if you know what you want to explore and what product quality you are seeking selecting the correct accessories is not  difficult.  your telescope and budget will drive most of your decisions.   not all accessories will perform equally on all types of telescopes.  telescope size and even your location can also play a part in deciding which accessories you want or need.  do not confuse telescope accessories with those you may choose for your automobile; rather, look at them like if you were purchasing them for a camera.  most accessories people purchase are for cosmetic appeal, not function.   your selection of accessories will determine the depth and quality of what you view.   buy the best you can afford within your budget.  poor quality accessories can greatly reduce your telescope's performance.   i recommend you discuss your needs with your supplier before ordering if you are new to buying telescope equipment.  i highly recommend contacting www.telescopes.com for advice and quality products.   i have included some additional information about the telescope and accessories i have purchased and how they performed.   the product descriptions and pricing are based on information available at the time of my purchases.
