Posssibly Televues most underrated eyepiece.
I own , or have owned , 6 different Televue eyepieces. This is my favorite of the entire lot ; it is by far the sharpest and most contrasty of my Panoptics , and the Pan 35 is no slouch. This EP yields absolutely stunning views of M42/M43 and the Trapezium in my TMB 175 and TOA 130. The M81/M82 galaxy pair fit nicely in the FOV , and the contrast is excellent. No lateral color , kidney beaning , or blackouts. I personally regard this as Als best effort.
