Quote: If there's one aspect that ain't quite perfect it's the eye-relief; with wearing eyeglasses i can just comfortably see the full field of my 13mm Ethos (rated at 15mm ER), whereas the 12.5mm ER rating of the ES9 is about right, and i can't quite get the full 100 with eyeglasses... tho prob'ly 90 of 'em. A minor nit, really.

Quote: I am thinking of picking up the 9 myself. I already have the 14 and the 20 along with the 30N2 82. The 9 would replace my ES 8.8 82. The only question is where to buy it. Astronomics has the CN discount. Agena has free shipping plus they throw in a plastic bolt case. Decisions, decisions. Barry

Quote: I have the Zhumell version of the GSO Barlow. I should just screw that into my 14 ES which would give me about the same mag and field as the 9. I have done that before with the 14. Barry
