The N22T4 is excellent. I would consider the 12ES92 next, or the Delos 10.

I use the ES 30mm/82 for wide field, low power viewing in both my 10" reflector and my SW 120 refractor and it is all I need for that. The Pleaides in that eyepiece... Holy Moley! That view alone was worth the cost (well... I did get it used at a considerable savings...). But, as others have said, it is a beast...

 

Good hunting!

I just got that in today and it had to be raining out here.
