I'm really thinking of getting this ES 30mm as a low power eyepiece, but since a 20mm 100° is on it's way to my collection I'm not sure it is worth it.
Markus, I see that you have owned/ own both 30mm and the 20mm 100°, which would you pick as a low power eyepiece, or both? I'm contemplating whether to get both or just the 20mm and go for the 14 and 9 ES100 to fill the "gap"..
