Used Tele Vue 5X Powermate - UT-11961 - SOLD -

UT-11961: If you're an eyeglass wearer and have difficulties with ultra high power, then you really need to consider the Televue 5X Power Mate. It's the only way to get high magnifications from your favorite long focal length/long eye relief eyepieces! The Televue PMT-5126 is a unique new 4-lens image amplifier - not a barlow lens - and it performs at a higher level of optical correction. The Televue 5X Powermate is a 4-element parfocal compact amplifying lens system created from a negative achromatic doublet and incorporating a positive "pupil-correcting" doublet. Your pupil can now be located where the eyepiece designer intended, avoiding vignetting and mismatch problems with wide field eyepieces.

The Televue PMT-5126 5X Powermate Image Amplifier is fully multi-coated, with blackened lens edges and internal anti reflection threading for excellent contrast. Extra features of the Televue PowerMate include a chrome barrel threaded for standard 1.25" filters, and an undercut safety groove in the barrel that helps hold the Powermate in place should the focuser thumbscrew accidentally loosen. Have you ever dropped a thumbscrew in the dark only to never find it again? No more! A non-marring brass clamp ring comes complete with a captive thumbscrew that holds your eyepieces securely in place. The Televue 5X Powermate is 3.8" length and includes a short chrome barrel that allows it to be used in star diagonals. It is also parfocal with TeleVue Plossls below 32mm focal length and is optically corrected down to f/4 for use with fast f/ratio reflectors. You'll find the Televue Power Mate will provide excellent performance with any telescope type or focal ratio. What's more, the Televue PMT-5126 is parfocal with the 1.25" diagonal of the Televue Ranger for quick power changes during terrestrial observing.

For astrophotographers, the chrome barrel containing the Powermate's optics can be removed from the black eyepiece holder section and used for lunar and terrestrial photography with close coupling cameras or CCD imagers. You'll find a chart of magnification tables in our "Additional Images" section. The Power Mate is extremely useful for increasing the photographic magnification with short focal length refractors and optional Powermate T-ring adapter (available under the "Accessories" tab) is needed to connect the chrome optical portion of the Powermate to a camera or CCD imager.
