I use 16mm, 20 and 25mm pairs in my BV scope with single arm.
Have fun, as they are a blast to use.

AFOV of 68 degrees..Any other limitations I should be aware of....

This means that a 20mm EP is no longer at 100x but more like 125x. A 24mm 68* would lose some light. Better off sticking with a 20mm SWA if that is the FOV you like. Plossl's are 52*

The TeleVue Plossls vignette, meaning the edges are not fully illuminated, which can affect the aesthetic quality of the view. I will probably not keep the bino pair, but instead keep one for monoviewing.
The Edmund Plossls and the XW 20s provide the same FOV but the XWs provide more magnification. The XWs are expensive though. The Edmund Plossls are great, nice and light and easy on the wallet. I tried RKE 28's, but the view was tough to hold.
That is all the experience I have with binopairs so far. The limitation you have is that if the field stop of the eyepieces you use exceeds the clear aperture of your binoviewer, you may see the vignetting I was referring to earlier.

Johnnyha, can you tell me a little more of your viewing experience with the ES 16 & 20. They are currently on sale and I might pick up both.
