I’m considering picking up a second set of these for my binoviewer, but first would like to hear thoughts on whether they are good for the application.  
 

Thanks!

They are very good, but I would rather choose here MOP or TPL eyepieces.

Matching what you already have will get you very fine performance at efficient cost. Those are high performance ep's at reasonable $ if you can find 'em. 

I've had those and prefer the TAO 32mm/12.5mm combo. But I think I'd hate to have to closely nail down all the differences

I have pairs of the 6, 9, 12.5, and 18mm Fujiyama orthos and think they are excellent for binoviewing.

I went ahead and purchased a second set.  I’m amped to try them out in the binos.

The 12.5, 18 and 25 Fujiyama orthos  are perfect eyepieces in binos

 

Now I only use the 12.5 .

They’re very nice. Having used them for years in my binoviewers, I don’t rate them more highly than TeleVue Plossls, or other Japanese orthos - Kasais/BGO etc. But they’re every bit as good. If you have more cash to invest, I’d also take a look at the TPLs as Denis recommended - they are exceptionally nice. Haven’t tried the MOPs yet.

I have never looked through a TeleVue plossl or the TPLs, but I have heard enough good about both that I am sure I will pick them up in future.  And yes, I realize that neither use a true plossl design!
