I have a TV 3-6mmm Zoom and I've used it extensively for high power
planetary observation. It's extremely contrasty and sharp and the
great thing is you can adjust the zoom to keep up with the seeing.
Also I wear glasses and the eye relief is actually OK for me. It's
the best zoom I've ever used.
Definetly recommended, or try the William Optics 4mm superwide which
is also good value for the money if you like a wider field. If you
want a tight field and maximum contrast the humble plossl with
relatively few elements is also a great eyepiece for high power
