Tele Vue EN6-03.5 overview

  • 1Description

Based on the original Nagler design, the 7-element/4-group lens configuration employed in the Tele Vue Nagler Type-6 3.5mm Eyepiece was designed as an ideal eyepiece for lunar and planetary viewing.

Despite its short focal length, the optical properties allow it to maintain its wide 82° apparent field of view, and a comfortable 12mm eye relief that provides space between the lens and eye to prevent accidental contact that can interfere with views. Built to Tele Vue's exacting standards, the Type-6 features anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics to improve brightness, color rendition, and contrast; and a fold-down rubber eyecup that helps to block stray peripheral light from interfering with the views and to further enhance contrast. A textured collar around the body ensure safe handling in the cold or while wearing gloves. The Type-6 has a barrel diameter of 1.25" to fit into the most common sized focusers and accessories, and is parfocal with all Tele Vue group 'B' eyepieces, allowing you to change eyepieces within the group without having to refocus every time.

    Tele Vue EN6-03.5 reviews

    Nagler Type-6 3.5mm Eyepiece (1.25") is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dobsonian users will love this eyepiece 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from ...is it worth the money? 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.
