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!

Nearly parfocal with 2.00" diagonals, the 2.00" Powermates are threaded to accept 48mm filters and their performance is exemplary with every 1.25" & 2.00" eyepiece in the Tele Vue line.

    Comments about Tele Vue 4x Powermate (2"):

    I use the 4X Powermate with my Celestron SCT 14" for Astrophotography of planets. I captured Jupiter, Mars, and the Moon (sections) with impressive clarity. I recommend purchasing the matched T-Adapter sold separately for use with your DSLR. I use this in conjunction with my Nikon D800 and the results are stunning. Good sharpness and detail with good magnification.

    Highly recommended.

    Comments about Tele Vue 4x Powermate (2"):

    I'm using 4x Powermate for astrophotography with an E0N 72mm. The first things that I noticed was the high quality of the optics and the manufacture of the barlow.
    It is important tho say that I had to use several extension tubes to reach the focus point.
