Tele Vue 2.5x 1.25" Powermate (PMT-2513) $298.00
 Al Nagler’s new 4-element concept, continues the tradition of full-field sharpness with optimum aberration control. Like long eye-relief? Retain the eye-relief of long focal length eyepieces, while at high power. Enjoy, for example, the sharpness and comfort of the 32mm Plössl at up to 5 times the power! Description Unique Benefits and Applications for Powermates Vignetting, edge field aberrations and pupil movement - all introduced when using Barlows with long focal length eyepieces, are minimized. Telecentric operation (field rays leave parallel to optical axis, unlike Barlow lenses which diverge rays). This is ideal for Hydrogen-alpha filter use such as with...

Tele Vue 2.0x Barlow 1.25" (BLW-2125) $174.00
Offered in 2x and 3x magnifications, these 1¼" Barlows perform identically. Simply choose either or both based on your eyepiece collection. Features include parfocalization, 1¼" filter threads, captive lock screws that won't fall out and full multicoatings. Description Properly designed Barlows do wonderful things: They amplify power, slow the telescope's f/# (improving eyepiece sharpness), and give designers the opportunity to compensate for eyepiece aberrations.TeleVue Barlows use multi-coated high index glasses for optimum aberration correction, exceptional contrast with virtually no light loss. Observed performance is aberration free, even when tested with f/4 scopes. They even improve our competitor's eyepieces and telescopes!...

Tele Vue 24.0 Panoptic (EPO-24.0) $458.00
This Sky & Telescope "Hot Product" is designed to produce the largest true field possible in a 1¼" eyepiece. (Its 27mm field stop is the same as the 32mm TeleVue Plössl). The higher power darkens the sky background while the greater magnification yields more details on extended objects. Further, its light weight (1/2 lb.), comfortable 15mm eye relief, and tapered top instantly make the 24mm Panoptic the ideal eyepiece for getting the maximum field for binocular viewers. Description Using my Wide-Field design as a starting point, I looked to bring Nagler-like performance to the 60+° field class with the Panoptic...

Tele Vue 3-6mm Nagler Zoom (ENZ-0306) $558.00
The TeleVue Nagler Zoom is the "ultimate" tool for tweaking out the last bit of power that the atmosphere will permit. Description I did not set out to design a zoom eyepiece, per se. David and I were discussing characteristics we'd like in a superior "planetary" eyepiece, and the zoom feature answered one of the major goals; how to obtain the highest possible useful magnification on a given night considering the ever-changing atmosphere. There were other aspects of equal importance and only the combination of all would satisfy our ethos in creating a "planetary" eyepiece: full field sharpness for any speed...

Tele Vue 2" Nebustar (B2N-0200) $367.00
The distinction you'll find with Bandmate filters is their consistency, achieved by keeping control of the manufacturing and quality control processes each company does so well. All the materials are sourced in Germany. Each filter is: optically tested by TeleVue in high power-space to ensure no image degradation, tested by Astronomik on a spectrograph to ensure the coating meets design specifications, mechanically tested for fit, cosmetically inspected for pinholes, digs, and sleeks and serialized, all to insure customer satisfaction. All filters are backed with a 10-year warranty against manufacturing defects. Description The Nebustar filter is a unique narrowband design specifically...

Tele Vue 13.0 Ethos (ETH-13.0) $855.00
We have not specifically endorsed the 13mm Ethos for Bino-Vue use because of the large diameter barrel. Even so, we were advised by Mike Harvey at the Winter Star Party (February 2008) that only 1-person in 25 had interpupilary limits with the bino'd Ethos (63.5-mm for the initial production 13mm).However, since many of our customers have been thrilled with the experience, we have maximized the potential use by narrowing the barrel from 63.5-mm to 62-mm diameter for eyepieces delivered beginning mid-March 2008. While the difference is only 1.5-mm, (or 0.75-mm for pairing a first production unit with current production) we...

Tele Vue 31.0 Nagler Type 5 (EN5-31.0) $907.00
With the 31mm, the unique 6-element design using four exotic glasses, maintains the contrast advancement of the Type 4s while achieving a true field area 82% larger than the 22mm Type 4! Owners of fast Dobsonian/Newtonians can enjoy a larger true field, free of secondary shadowing, than ever before. For example, a 12.5", f/4.5 scope with a Paracorr will deliver a 1.5 degree field (3 Moon diameters), at 53x with a 6mm exit pupil. Use our eyepiece calculator to figure out what the 31mm will deliver on your scope. Description Why Are There 3 Types of Naglers? To achieve the...

Tele Vue 25.0 Plossl (EAP-25.0) $159.00
The 25mm, 20mm, 15mm, 11mm and 8mm Plössls round out the focal lengths for various observing from deep sky to planetary. They work best with TeleVue Powermates to effectively double the number of focal lengths in your collection. Far superior to eyepieces usually provided as standard with most instruments. Description Since we introduced our Plössls in 1980, they have won praise and patents, including a patent in Japan. TeleVue Plössls, designed by Al Nagler, have been a recognized benchmark of performance and value in the class of 50° apparent field of view eyepieces. While the Plössls may be our least...
