I wouldn’t bother with Masuyama they aren’t much different from what you use now with the Takahashi. It’s said that ATM actually acquired the glass for their Masuyama EP’s from Takahashi. If you are going to use your EP for planetary then wider FOV isn’t really going to matter. A tight FOV like the one you will find on TMB’s really help concentrate your vision on the target. A wide FOV can sometime take away from good planetary views making the planets perceived size seem smaller, lost in all that black surround. The ZAO are as good as they say but you will have to pay for it just to squeeze out negligible amounts of detail. Honestly I would try to find a TMB it’s cheaper and on par with the ZAO. Trust me I’ve seen it with my own eyes.
