Product Highlights
  • 43° Apparent Field of View
  • 28mm Eye Relief

Tele Vue eyepieces come in several variations and focal lengths to match your particular preferences amongst the variables of size, weight, price, eye relief and apparent field of view.  They're universally applauded by both amateur and professional astronomers alike, and hold their resale value incredibly well.

The Plossl 40.0mm eyepiece is a venerable "entry level" classic amongst Tele Vue eyepieces.  It is characterized by having a super sharp, relatively narrow 43° apparent field of view with sufficient eye relief.  It is lightweight for its focal length and ideally suited for work in Tele Vue's Bino Vue Stereo Binocular Viewer.

    Good Quality but not for an f/5 Scope

        Comments about Tele Vue Plossl 40mm Eyepiece (1.25"):

        In trying to get a wider field of view and less magnification for my 130mm f/5 reflector, I chose this product. It is not right for my application. The exit pupil = (40mm/f5) becomes 8mm, which is not desirable (5mm is about maximum for a senior like myself.) Also, the eye relief is 28mm which is uncomfortably great. So I had to return the product, which B&H makes easy and painless.

        Comments about Tele Vue Plossl 40mm Eyepiece (1.25"):

        I use this eyepiece w/ a 8" Meade SCT for viewing large and dim astronomical targets such as Andromeda and various nebulae. Tele Vue optics are very high-quality and the images produced are crisp and clean.
