Taking performance inspiration from the venerable Nagler series, then combining the optical design properties of both an eyepiece and Barlow, the Tele Vue Panoptic 41mm Wide Angle Eyepiece has a 6-element/4-group lens configuration that produces a generous 68° field of view and improved edge-of-field performance, while minimizing size and weight.

This eyepiece has the longest focal length in the series, and one of the longest that Tele Vue offers, to produce a low magnification on most optical tube assemblies (OTAs) — making it ideal for wide-field observations of the night sky and most lunar, planetary, and deep-space needs. It is outfitted with fully multi-coated optics to maximize light transmission, color rendition, and contrast, with blackened lens elements that limit internal light loss and diffraction. It also has a fold-down rubber eyecup that helps to block stray peripheral light, avoiding interference with the views and further enhancing contrast. Its exceptional 27mm eye relief provides ample room between the lens and eye to prevent accidental contact that can interfere with views. This model has a large 2" barrel diameter to make it even more comfortable to view through, and a textured rubberized grip for sure handling. This eyepiece is parfocal with the 27mm Panoptic eyepiece, requiring little or no refocusing when changing between the two.

    Panoptic 41mm Wide Angle Eyepiece (2") is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great low-power eyepiece for large SCT's 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.
