5X Powermate for planets

Like everyone else, I want it all when it comes to high power planetary viewing. Here's my latest scheme: drop 25, 18, and 12mm HD Orthos in a 5X Powermate. Hoped for results: bright, sharp images with sufficient eye relief (okay, I'm willing to sacrifice a little field of view for the sharpest image possible). Anybody out there have any experience with an arrangement like this? Will the Powermate degrade the image of the Orthoscopics? Any other ideas? Larry Seguin.
