Are you sure that was an upgrade. I hope you have kept your Edmund. That or fiind a collector for it. They are unique instruments. Feel free to post an image if you have one. The seventies era Red Tube Edmunds are amazing instruments. I still use my '77 on a regular basis.
Seriously though, the best value in planetary eyepieces anywhere is the UO HD eyepieces from Helix manufacturing. They are comparable to the $200 TMB monos in image quality.

my old edumund is the exact same as your ONLY i was using a equatorial mount and it was a 6". i only used the rke line of eyepeices at the time then about 10 yrs ago bought a 10mm possl(and it's better than the new meade 4000 super's.
now with my new sct 10" i need a good planetary eyepeice but am not willing to spend 350. I hear the antares speers walers are very good at half the price.

I think I also read that the Orion Ultrascopics are the same as the Celestron Ultimas.?.?.?. I could be wrong though
