    Comments about Tele Vue Panoptic 41mm Wide Angle Eyepiece (2"):

    A great low-power / wide-field eyepiece for a larger Schmidt-Cassegrain (SCT) telescope.This is one of my two most used eyepieces (the 27mm Panoptic being the other). It gives the maximum field-of-view possible for a 2" eyepiece. Very nice for viewing nebulas, open clusters, and larger galaxies.This eyepiece is best used on a large (11" or larger) SCT telescope that has been modified with a 2" visual back. Smaller SCT's do not provide the full 2" visual path that this eyepiece needs. A 24mm, 27mm, or 35mm Panoptic would be better low-power choices for them.Also, Dobsonians and other scopes with shorter f-stops (like f5) would waste light by producing too large of an exit pupil. A 31mm Nagler or 21mm Ethos might be a better choice for those.Very sturdy eyepiece. I accidentally dropped mine on the pavement and dinged it up a bit, but the optics were undamaged.A fairly big and heavy eyepiece, but a large SCT won't even notice.
