Product Highlights
  • 82° Apparent Field of View
  • 12mm 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 Nagler Type 6 5.0mm is the ultimate in wide angle eyepiece design, with an 82° apparent viewing field that will make you feel as if you're swimming in the view, unaware of your surroundings.  It delivers the pinnacle viewing experience for those that deem the view more important than all other factors, and the 5mm Nagler Type 6 does so without massive size.  The Nagler Type 6 formula is based on the original Nagler design, but squeezes a bit more contrast, eye relief and true field out of the focal length.

      Comments about Tele Vue Nagler Type 6 5mm Wide Angle Eyepiece (1.25"):

      I have quite a few Nagler Eyepieces. They have a comfortably wide field of view with great contrast. I don't use glasses, so the eye relief is very comfortable. The view is sharp and constrasty. These are truly premium eyepieces. Size does matter, especially if you have a smaller telescope. The Naglers are much lighter than any of the other Televue EP's in this size range. I find the 5mm Nagler to be the most consistently useful focal length for my F7 refractor when viewing planets, and when splitting all but the closest double stars. I have higher magnifications, but they always require the best seeing. Even then, I always 'stop by' the 5mm before proceeding.
