Is the GSO Superview still the safer bet budget 15mm for binoviewing?

Dear all, thank you for the excellent information on this forum that led me down to my bino set up, and I am very pleased with the result.

 

Here is my set up, a Celestrone BV, and SvBony Aspheric pairs of 23mm and 10mm. And I'm looking for something in between, so I thought a 15mm pairs would be good. And based on the reading here, the GSO superview 15mm seems to be a safe bet?

 

Are there any other worthy alternatives of the same price range that I should take a look too? Thank you!

GSO is a good brand, and a 15-68 is a nice EP for BVs.

 

Well of 15mm focal length, I like my Stellarvue 15mm 82 deg UWAs (same line as Meade and AstroTech) a little more money but still under $100 and they get you a wider field (but also more glass; some have mixed feelings about 82 degrees in BVs).  I also have ES68-16, 20, 24 I use (the ES68-20 and ES68-24 are probably my most used BV eyepieces for solar and planets).

tell me about it!!

 

Anyway, already bought the Superview 15mm pair from Taobao. The thing is, the vendor sent me one Superview and one Super Plossl lol.gif, but all is good, they're sending me the correct one.
