welcome back cheerio!
by ESR you mean "equivalent series resistor" or the standard capacitor values (E6/E12)?

here are some graphs from an ESR meter kit I built some time ago - generally in repair one tends to compare similar capacitor ESRs

this is a rather old topic and the attachments probably were lost during an attack that the site experienced
