Should I buy this Eyepiece for Saturn Viewing?

Baader Planetarium Hyperion Eyepiece: Comes in 3.5mm, 5mm, 8mm, 13mm, and more. But for $120 EACH I am thinking of purchasing just ONE for now.
I am awaiting shipment of my brand new Celestron OMNI XLT 150mm 6" reflector, 750mm Focal Length, F/R=5
I was going to but the "complete set" from Celestron for $150 since it has like 5 eyepeices WITH filters AND a nice case. but should I just buy like 1 of the expensive ones that alot of people seem to love. I was thinking either the 5mm or 8mm to make Saturn look as nice as I can..

What do you all think??? Thanks alot everyone.:)

But you're still in the 1.25" eyepieces.

You should probably invest in a 2" focuser - about $50 on EBay.

Then 2" Eyepieces and filters. Start (with the filters) with a lunar filter and a nebula filter (Total on Ebay about $130), and a 20mm 2" eyepiece from Owl Telescopes (about $75).

MUCH better viewing.

For Saturn I use a 15mm 70 degree AFOV with a couple of filters stacked to enhance the bands and the rings. BEAUTIFUL.
(I have an 8" SCT from Celestron - one of the old manual Orange Tubes).

Cavaet: When you go to a 2" focuser, you might have to add additional counter-weight.

Email me if you have any more questions.
