  1. I own two telescopes: an 8" dob F6 and SW heritage 130p 650Fl. After years of using only one eyepiece for both of them, the baader zoom + the 2.25 barlow, I finally ordered a 2" low power eyepiece for the 8" F6 dob. The ES20mm 100°. While I still enjoy the Baader zoom for lunar and planetary observations, it gives me almost a claustrophobic feel at low powers, ~0.8° tfov on my 8" dob at 20mm (24mm hardly ever used, major tunnelvision). After considering the ES30 82°, I finally decided to go for the ES20mm 100° (21mm Ethos cost more than I`m willing to pay). The desire for a 100° eyepiece, better contrast, albeit with a narrover tfov than ES30 82°, was the decisive factor. With the 8"dob F6 this will give me: tfov 1.67°, 60x power, exit pupil 3.3. I am aware that this tfov wont frame every object up there, but it will be a revelation compared to what I got today. My expectations are, to be honest, sky high. I will try to lower them a bit before first light... As the (slightly altered) thread title says, the package is at the clearing agency awaiting final release (imported eyepiece). Clearing agency meaning customs in Oslo. They are probably afraid its a large bottle of whiskey. Now the hunt for a lowpower widefield 1,25" eyepiece for the lovely heritage f5 begins. So far the ES24 68° is the favorite giving me 2.5° tfov, but the 16mm Nirvana 82° (2° tfov) is also a good candidate, nicely priced at FLO. Any suggestions for a low power 1,25" eyepiece giving me at least 2° tfov, for the heritage (650fl-F5) are welcome. Thanks for reading. Rune
