Powermates are the highly-evolved answer to the Barlow lens design from Tele Vue.

While barlow lenses increase the eye relief of the eyepiece in use, they also reposition the exit pupil of long focal length eyepieces far from the designer's intended position. This can cause vignetting and image degradation.

Using four elements, the Powermates leave the exit pupil where it was intended to be, restoring the full viewing aperture and optical quality of long focal length eyepieces. Have the best of both worlds; the long eye relief of the longer focal length eyepieces, but with higher magnification!

This Powermate is parfocal in all 1.25" diagonals & prisms, and is thus highly recommended over standard barlow lenses for refractors with 1.25" focusers.

Directly accepts all 1.25" eyepiece
Works well with diagonals, unlike many normal Barlow lenses
Accepts optional PTR-1250 SLR camera adapter (imaging w/o eyepiece

        Comments about Tele Vue 2.5x Powermate (1.25"):

        I am using the 2.5x Powermate with my Hyperion Baader Zoom 8x-24x zoom lens and a Coronado PST (solar) telescope. The zoom lens improves the viewing a great deal and the 2.5x powermate adds that much more to my viewing experiencing. I highly recommend this combination with the PST.

        Comments about Tele Vue 2.5x Powermate (1.25"):

        The build is of high quality and excellent optic. It is so easy to attach the T adapter and the thread is buttery smooth. Couldn't asked for more at that price. Thinking of saving more $ to get other televue product. It's worth it.
