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.
Using my Wide-Field design as a starting point, I looked to bring Nagler-like performance to the 60+° field class with the Panoptic series. The idea of a lens to "interface" between the eyepiece and Barlow struck me as the proper way to keep size, weight and cost to a minimum while improving edge of field performance even further. I later developed this idea into the Powermates. — Al Nagler

We just recently bought this eyepiece for use on a 12.5" Newtonian telescope on a Dobsonian alt-az mount. We needed an eyepiece to bridge the gap between a 13mm Televue Ethos and a 35mm Panoptic. It was recommended to us by a highly respected amateur astronomer friend. We used this eyepiece recently to view a number of deep sky objects, planets, the moon, and comet 2022-E3. The views were breathtaking. Stars appeared sharp and clean from one edge to the other, with no apparent aberrant star shapes or visible vignetting across the visual field. The view of Jupiter was somewhat limited by the seeing conditions we encountered, but the coloured bands on its surface were easily distinguishable and presented with excellent contrast. On the first quarter moon, this eyepiece delivered a truly stunning and memorable view of sharply etched craters and other lunar topography. We are delighted with the performance of this eyepiece and definitely recommend it.
Great service, thanks
