    Thanks for this great report. I have had great luck with my wide field ES82 and ES68 eyepieces, great for galaxies, and certainly a big difference from those and the plossls for observing galaxies. The best galaxy killer I have is a 28mm ES68 2 inch.

    Same here. ES EPs have a great following on this forum for a good reason. They deliver.

    Nice report Tom.
    You will enjoy the Morpheus over your plossels. Good glass makes all the difference.
    I just ordered the Morpheous 12.5mm and 9mm. I love the large open glass at the top of the eyepiece. It beats the heck out of looking through the portholes on my Naglers.
    Scopes; Orion SkyQuest XT10. Stellarvue SVA130, 3" FT focuser. William Optics GT-71. Orion 10" f/3.9 Astrograph.
    Mounts; Orion Atlas EQ-G. Celestron CGX-L.
    Eyepieces; Sirius Plossl 25mm. Stratus 17mm. Edge-On Planetary 5mm. Nagler 9mm. Nagler 12mm. Morpheus 12.5mm. Morpheus 9mm.

    I know I was stunned at the size of the 'porthole' in comparison to my plossel of around the same focal length.

    Sigh.. I hope I get to try it soon
