Update, I continue to be really amazed by this eyepiece, especially with nebula filters under our super dark skies. Objects like the Veil, N. American and M42 are just spectacular in using it.

The ES 25mm 100 is now my second most used eyepiece, the 14mm version is the most used. Overall, a pretty amazing gain over my 30mm 82 degree.

Interesting reviews and comments about this eyepiece. My impression is most users here are using fast scopes f/5 and under. How is this eyepiece performing on long focus refractors? would be curious to try on my 8" f/13. I suspect a lot of the complaints might disappear???

+1 on the ES 14 100*, this is the one of the line where it all came together right...a fantastic widefield. The 20mm is good, I'm using it more and more, but I just don't see me ever giving up my mushroom top ES 82 24mm...now if the 9mm will ever get here...

Bashing ES and Scott Roberts - who I have met and who is not only a gentleman but a true innovator - is just off the mark. Hopefully, this competition will spur more innovation and even better prices all around.

Clears,

Agreed. I have seen and heard nothing but good from Mr Roberts. Like the eyepieces or not, I think we should be respectful.
