I have posted this title not to be incendiary, but because I have to ask if anyone else has experienced this. I have tried several variants of the ES 82 line and have found the field of view to be largely unusable unless I move my head waaaay over from side to side. I thought that the 68° threshold was as far as I could use comfortably and have several Panoptics and Radians in my stable. However, I just acquired a 13mm Nagler (type6) with several other eyepieces, and I thought I was just going to move it along. However, after trying it out, I noticed the FOV was so much easier to use to its fullest extent than the ES. Is this possible, or am I just misrepresenting the impression I can recall. Mind you, the sizes I used were not equivalents to the 13mm (6.7mm, 8.8mm, 30mm) but it is perplexing and intriguing at the same time, so much so I am considering replacing a few EPs that are close to the same size with this one piece. I realize that my experience is unique to my circumstances ( eyeglass wearer with moderate astigmatism but more comfortable not wearing them during viewing) but I would welcome any observations people have experienced that may be similar to my own. I should add that I primarily view with refractors but do have a Newtonian and a Mak/Cass. I will also add that i have both a 24mm ES 68 and a TV24mm Panoptic and can see no discernible difference in casual viewing.
