I would get a 2" eyepiece around 30mm to maximize your true field of view while maintaining a 6mm exit pupil with your f/5 scope since that scope can accept 2" eyepieces.  The 30mm APM UFF is quite nice.  There are lower cost options with poorer edge correction.

I would then get a 12mm to 14mm wide field eyepiece for a nice mid-power option.  The 12mm BST is decent, but there are plenty of wider options available if you don't need the eye relief.  If you do need eye relief, the 12.5mm Morpheus is reputedly quite nice.  If you've got the money and can balance it's weight, the 12mm ES-92 is hard to beat.

I would then get a 4mm to 6mm eyepiece for high power views utilizing a +/- 1mm exit pupil.  The 5mm BST is decent, but again, but there are plenty of other wider options as well.
