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 3.5mm 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 3.5mm 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.

    ...is it worth the money?

    Comments about Tele Vue Nagler Type 6 3.5mm Wide Angle Eyepiece (1.25"):

    This is a fine eyepiece. It may very well earn the high price in a high price scope. However, in an Orion XT8 telescope the benefit (from a cost effectiveness perspective) is questionable at best. The Nagler does work fine in the XT8 - it just may be a bit of overkill in a scope like the Orion. Other eyepieces half the price of the Nagler yield comparable images in my XT8.

      Comments about Tele Vue Nagler Type 6 3.5mm Wide Angle Eyepiece (1.25"):

      I purchased this specifically for planetary viewing with a 10" Dobsonian, and it has been perfect.

      The wide apparent field means that the planets stay in the field of view for much longer than with other high power eyepieces, and the image is amazingly sharp edge to edge for such a short focal length.

      One heads up - to get the best from this eyepiece your reflector needs to be very well collimated. The eyepice is not forgiving at all of collimation errors. This also makes it an outstanding eyepiece for star testing to get your Dob into that perfect collimation. It really is worth that effort.

      I have also tried the eyepiece with a 12" Schmidt-Cassegrain with the same fantastic results.
