TeleVue 32mm Plossl

32mm Plossl eyepiece

$133.99

PLOSSL EYEPIECES

Concept: For our first product, I wanted to refine the best known high quality eyepiece design, the 4-element Plossl. Optically, my design using high-index glasses improved the edge-field performance sufficiently to win U.S. patent (#4482217). Adding full multicoatings, blackened lens edges, parfocalization, anti-reflection and filter threads, saftey undercuts, and rubber eyeguards resulted in contrast, sharpness, and quality levels that launched our "spacewalk" quest. -Al Nagler

The Al Nagler eyepiece design that laid the foundation for the Tele Vue reputation.Since their introduction, Tele Vue Plossls have been a recognized benchmark of performance and value in the class of 50 degree apparent field of view eyepieces. With noticeably less astigmatism and lateral color at field`s edge, they deliver sharper images than any other 4 or 5 element "Plossl". For a bit more than generic brands, you can own a genuine Tele Vue Plossl. Remember, you`ll always be happy with the best.

User Reports:

"Our observatory has a 16" f/5, and I recently tested my 26mm and 17mm Tele Vue against a new (5 element competitive "Plossl"). The Tele Vue eyepieces were much sharper, with more contrast. Sharpness at the edge of the field was far superior." - Steven Sherrod, Past President Des Moines Astronomical Society.

"Sharpest I`ve ever used." -Richard Berry, Editor Astronomy Magazine

A Work Horse
A great staple. Narrow field of view bothers me. Great light thru put with so few elements.  A poor mans substitute for the 31 Nagler or 35 panoptic, unless you have a binoviewer.

Color is great!
Works very well with the F10 ratio of the scope,giving a nice wide field.
Immages are very crisp. works well in my light poluted back yard.

Use with C8 as primary eyepiece for variables.  Long eye relief allows me to keep my glasses on.  I like the narrower field of view for variables.  Optics seem perfect right to the edge.

My first EP, and still my favourite
This EP was recommended to me for my C5+, and it remains my favourite.  Bright images, clear images almost to the edge.

Great In The Binoviewer
I love panning around with these eyepieces during the day with the binoviewer in my refractor. These are a best buy in astronomy for the money. Ill never sell my pair!
