Tele Vue Panoptic Overview

Taking performance inspiration from the venerable Nagler series, then combining the optical design properties of both an eyepiece and Barlow, the Tele Vue Panoptic 19mm Wide Angle Eyepiece has a 6-element/4-group lens configuration that produces a generous 68° field view and improved edge-of-field performance, while minimizing size and weight.

This eyepiece represents the shortest focal length in the series, yet still produces a moderate-to-low magnification making it ideal for most lunar, planetary, and deep-sky observation 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. Its comfortable 13mm eye relief provides room between the lens and eye to prevent accidental contact that can interfere with views. This model has a 1.25" barrel diameter to make it compatible with the most popular size drawtubes and accessories, and a textured rubberized grip for sure handling. To make the eyepiece as easy to use as possible, it is engineered to be parfocal with all Group 'B' eyepieces — so little or no refocusing will be required when changing eyepieces within the group.

I took advantage of a recent sale and got a couple of great Tele Vue eyepieces. This is one of them. The wide field of view is optical perfection--color, contrast, sharpness. Eye placement isn't troublesome. Works great on my Tele Vue refractor and my other telescopes.

There is nothing much new to add to this amazing eyepiece. This and his bigger brother Pan 24 mm, best and most popular eyepieces ever made. With it's precise optics and value glass elements, have 68* of AFOV, in my scope, it turn to be the many-times-use-during-the-night eyepiece. with focal length of 2500 this EP makes an magnification around 130x which is very good for globulars and galaxies. Would recommend this EP any time.

I live in Western Oregon, on the outskirts of a medium-sized town. Lots of new developments moving in with porch lights, street lights, etc. We also have humidity, agricultural dust and smoke. The skies are no longer 12th magnitude.. more like 9 on a decent night. You need great glass to perform under these conditions. Much of my viewing through my 11 sct is with eyepieces in the 20mm range. I have a 13mm Nagler that performs well, and the 19mm Panoptic is just as satisfying. It's 68 degree field may not match the Nagler, but it is tack sharp and lets a lot of light in. I like the way the view 'snaps' into focus. Those mag 9.8 to 12 galaxies are back in reach. It is a medium to smallish sized lens, and does not require any adjustments to your scope balance.

I'm an amateur astronomer on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland Australia> I have an 8 Celestron Schmidt Cassegrain with a Tele Vue Everbright diagonal. Yesterday I received my 19mm Tele Vue Panoptic from B&H. I had already purchased the 24mm Tele Vue Panoptic from B&H and until last night it was my stand alone favourite - now it's my equal favourite! I had the chance to use both last night to view Jupiter in all its glory, Red Spot included! In combination with the 2x and 3x Tele Vue Barlow's, again from B&H, the views were phenomenal. I could easily see detail in the smaller bands heading up towards the poles (magnification of approx 320x with the 19mm Panoptic and 3x Barlow), and this was from my backyard with moderate light pollution - can't wait for a clear night to go up to the hills. I am so glad that I chose to purchase the large eye relief wide field Panoptic's and combined them with the Barlow's to achieve a wide range of magnification. Easy viewing with the large eye relief and no issues with kidney beaning with the 3x Barlow or perceptable loss of field flatness, brightness or colour. Now to purchase the 2.5x Tele Vue Powermate to fill in the gaps! B&H are excellent suppliers to Australia with tracking for parcel delivery and the products arriving within 2wks. I love the free torches, great for looking in dark places. Thanks B&H, I have my Fantastic Beast and I know now where to find more!

It would really all depend on the Telescope you have. Unfortunately I do not have that type of information, my apologies.
