Product Details

  • The Tele Vue 2X PowerMate (#TE-PMT-2200) is a 4-element concept that continues the tradition of full-field sharpness with optimum aberration control. The 2X PowerMate retains the eye-relief of long focal length eyepieces, while at high power! Delivering nearly constant magnification regardless of image distance behind the top surface, distortions are minimized. 

    Special Features of The Tele Vue PowerMate 

    • The Tele Vue PowerMate consists of a negative doublet plus a positive "pupil-correcting" doublet. 
    • It provides the magnifying function of a Barlow without its limitations by restoring the field rays to their original direction... as if the PowerMate wasn't there.
    • It is flexible for visual and imaging with all types of telescopes and eyepieces. 

    For astro-imagers, check the "Gallery" tab below for a chart that indicates the magnification as a function of distance from the Tele Vue PowerMate top surface to the imaging surface (CCD or film). 

    Used singly or stacked, it helps your scope achieve the long focal-length required to image details on the planets or solar surface. The increased image scale allows for imaging without an intervening eyepiece - like in prime focus photography.

Tele Vue 2" Powermate 2x

Had a great experience shopping here. Ron was an immense help and the Priorty shipping was quite a surprise. I received the item in pristine condition and it performs flawlessly. I will gladly do business here again.

Bigger and better

I needed a wider field of view because I got a new full-frame camera (Canon Ra). This does the trick; images are brighter, flatter, and less vignetted than a 1.25" powermate or barlow. Just about every store had this back ordered, but good old OPT had it and shipped it immediately.

Excellent Focal length extender

The 2.0x 2-inch Powermate increases scope focal length and power by a factor of 2. I have used it with the Celestron EdgeHD 1100 for planet viewing and with the ***** 8-inch reflector for globular cluster photography. The Canon T-Ring option is very handy and allows the Canon DSLR to directly attach for prime focal plane photography. The parfocal feature of this optic allows minimal refocusing of eyepieces with or without it in the beam path. Photographs of Jupiter show no obvious spectrum divergence (no red or blue fringes), and no vignetting which are common with the standard Barlow. The image is clear and free of distortion.This piece is excellent and I highly recommend it.


muy buen servicio, lo recomiendo.
