Description

Since we introduced our Plössls in 1980, they have won praise and patents, including a patent in Japan. Tele Vue Plössls, designed by Al Nagler, have been a recognized benchmark of performance and value in the class of 50-degree apparent field-of-view eyepieces. While the Plössls may be our least expensive eyepiece line, they still enjoy the same care and attention to detail as our most expensive. While it's easy for other manufacturers to vie for the lowest price, Tele Vue continues to believe that quality, performance, and consistency will ultimately reward you with the most value for your dollar.

 

Diffraction limited "on-axis" performance is a given. Using more expensive high-index glasses to reduce astigmatism and lateral color at the field's edge, Tele Vue Plössls deliver sharper images than any other brand of 4 or 5 element "Plossl" or Orthoscopic designs. The faster the focal ratio of your telescope, the greater your visual reward for using Tele Vue eyepieces. Tele Vue Plössls feature full multi-coatings for greatest light transmission and contrast. Blackened lens edges and internal anti-reflection threads tweak the last bit of contrast for maximum image detail. The sharper field focuses faint star light into perceptible points and allows those with undriven mounts to gaze longer before repositioning the image.

 

The 55mm focal length has the largest true field possible for 2" eyepiece holders -3 times the true field area of any 1-1/4" eyepiece. The focal plane is placed at the end of the barrel to minimize vignetting. Performance with Schmidt-Cassegrains is remarkable since it avoids the image degradation and severe vignetting which occurs when using telecompressors. Long eye-relief and unique adjustable eyeguard for eyeglass wearers.


In the 1-1/4" series we included a long eye-relief 40mm focal length in the series with a 43 degree apparent field. Like the 55mm, its focal plane is at the barrel edge for maximum field in the 1-1/4" format.  The 32mm Plossl, with its larger 50 degree apparent field, will deliver the same true field as the 40mm but with higher magnification. The 32mm is parfocal with the shorter focal length Plössls.

 

The 25mm, 20mm, 15mm, 11mm and 8mm Plössls round out the focal lengths for various observing from deep sky to planetary. They work best with Tele Vue Powermates to effectively double the number of focal lengths in your collection. Far superior to eyepieces usually provided as standard with most instruments.

 

For a bit more than generic brands, you can own a genuine Tele Vue Plossl.

    Probably the best plossl 32 mm eyepiece

    Bought this 32mm plossl eyepiece as what I thought would be the best finder eyepiece available. So far, it is performing to my expectations. It definitely has more contrast than three other 32mm plossl eyepieces that I have tried. The plossl 32mm has as much true field of view as any other eyepiece I could find for less than [$]. Those over that figure are only marginally better. Many eyepieces with wider apparent fields of view do not have the true width of a 32mm plossl. Dollar for dollar, I think this particular Televue plossl is the best eyepiece available for finding purposes. It also gives great views if that large of a true viewing field is needed. Other Televue models get lots of press and are wonderful eyepieces. This one simply out performs the other brands. It costs more. But you definitely get what you pay for with this eyepiece.

    The checks above (Pros/ Cons) pertain only to this particular EP. This is in no way indicative of TeleVue's products as a whole but this EP comes nowhere close to my William Optics 16mm UWAN. Thats about as much as I can say for it. There are better EP's out there, go for those.

      Comments about TeleVue Telescopes Plossl Eyepieces:

      Views are sharp and clear from edge to edge. Everything about the eyepiece is quality, from the chrome bottom, to the rubber eyeguard.

      The glass is so clear, you don't think about it.

      Comments about TeleVue Telescopes Plossl Eyepieces:

      I purchased the 15mm plossl for use with my Lunt 60mm double stacked hydrogen alpha solar telescope. While it gives a great image of the sun, it was not very comfortable to use. In order to get the full view, my eye needed to be pressed up against the eyepiece. Televue's 25mm plossl on the other hand gives a great image and really good eye relief. You can't beat the sight of the sun in hydrogen alpha using two Televue 25mm plossls in a bino viewer.
