I've found a good deal on an 82mm Fieldscope but I'm not thrilled with the eypiece.  Is the Nikon Fieldscope eyepiece proprietary or will other eyepieces fit the scope?

You can only use Nikon Fieldscope eyepieces on the Fieldscope. The original zoom had some drawbacks like a narrow field of view and short eye relief. There was a redesign at one point but I don't have enough knowledge in the area to give out any more info than that.
 
On the other hand the fixed, wide angle eyepieces are another animal entirely. The view is superb with excellent edge performance and an extremely flat field of view. Color fringing is practically non-existant. I have a Fieldscope 82 "clone" in my possession right now and I am very impressed with the 30x wide angle eyepiece on it.
