I have a 25mm Plossl (Celestron), and a 12.5mm, 6mm, and 5mm Orthoscopic
I must say that the Ortho. eyepieces perform better that most other kinds of
eyepieces that I have tried, giving sharper views and more details in most
cases. I am not a great fan of Barlows, I never use the one I have with my
25mm Plossl, having bought a 12.5mm instead. (Its useless on the 'shorter'
eyepieces in any case).
I hope this will help you.
