Tele Vue 35mm Panoptic Eyepiece
The Tele Vue 35 mm Panoptic Eyepiece
With the Panoptic series, Tele Vue has taken the Wide-Field concept to Nagler-like performance levels - A meaningful advance over any eyepiece in its 68 degree field class. The Tele Vue 35 mm Panoptic eyepiece has the largest 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!
Of course, multi-coatings, blackened lens edges, filter threads, rubber grip rings and exemplary construction are standard on all Panoptics. Little niceties such as a cover for the eyeguard, and an undercut in the barrel for extra locking security complete the package. A double identifying ring distinguishes all Panoptics in your eyepiece case.

One of my favorites
I have a good set of Telvue eyepieces: 20, 12, 7, and 4.8 mm Naglers and the 35 mm Panoptic. The Panoptic is my "finder" eyepiece on all telescopes and a favorite viewing eyepiece on larger scopes. It is so easy to look through for viewing star clusters and all things requiring a large FOV.
I recently purchased my 35mm Panoptic and last night the sky was clear although seeing and transparency were average... so at about 2AM.. I decided to take out BIG BLUE (my 10 MEADE SCT and do a little observing..I live actually on the North boundary of the city of Tampa...but I do have a spot in my back yard where NO LIGHT is visible... so i decided to check out my 35mm PANOPTIC... (i also have a 13mm NAGLER (type 1 and that is an AWESOME eyepiece I was VERY IMPRESSED by the PANOPTIC as i scanned around the sky, I found M11 (the WILD DUCK CLUSTER and it was BEAUTIFUL from my less than perfect sky conditions... but later in the observing session, i decided to check out THE DOUBLE CLUSTER.... and WOW!!!!!... I was amazed at how it looked... THIS IS AN AWESOME EYEPIECE.... Thank you AL NAGLER ! I CAN'T WAIT TO GO TO A DARK SKY SITE ! I will never forget the feeling that i got when i saw that DOUBLE CLUSTER looking so beautiful (even in a light polluted environment 5 STARS for sure !
Zippidy do da! Add the 35mm to my Celestron 8i. Crisp views edege to edge. Well worth the money if you want to exceed all expectations. Mike Anderer
