About this product

Model:  tv_ep_panoptic_19mm
Part Number:  EPO-19.0

Tele Vue has taken the Wide-Field concept to Nagler-like performance levels — a meaningful advance over any eyepiece in its 68° field class.

Concept: 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

Eyepiece Field of View Simulator

19mm

Size, weight and performance make the 19mm an ideal mid power chioce. Ideal "soul-mate" to Bino Vue. Parfocal with smaller Plössls and Naglers.

24mm

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 Tele Vue 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.

27mm

Housed in a 2" barrel like the 35mm, the 27mm is lighter & smaller. It's perfect for any telescope size, type or speed, where a little more magnification is desired, yet still allows full field viewing with eyeglasses. For example, with the Tele Vue-85, it gives 22x and a true field of 2.9 degrees!

35mm

The 35mm has a large true field with plenty of eye relief for eyeglass wearers.  When combined with a Paracorr to correct the coma of an f/4.5 Newtonian, performance is spectacular across the 68 degree field. Imagine, sharp star clusters at the extreme edge of the field along with a 6.8mm exit pupil!

41mm

The 41mm Panoptic eyepiece is a big brother to the 24mm Panoptic (largest 1.25" field). With its 46mm field stop, the 41mm Panoptic delivers the largest 2" field possible. An adjustable and removable screw-type top allows quick, comfortable eye positioning. The scalloped shape gives a positive grip.

Unbeatable rich field eyepiece
Monday, 30 July 2018  | 

Owned 2 of the 35mm. Eye relief OK for glasses with the cup rolled back.
Heavy but not too extreme. Stars pin points edge to edge in my refractors.

With Newtonians, using a Tele Vue Paracorr 2 coma corrector it's setting is G.

Fitting a Nebula filter such as an OIII this Panoptic, with a wide enough field of view, will show stunning views of Orion, Veil, Pleiades and without a filter the Andromeda galaxy is breathtaking.
