Tele Vue PMT-2200 Overview

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.

Directly accepts all 2" eyepiece
Threaded for 48mm filters
Works well with diagonals, unlike many normal Barlow lenses
Accepts optional PTR-2200 SLR camera adapter (imaging w/o eyepiece)

I thought it was not possible to have a Barlow lens and not see a much dimmer image. It is possible and it still stays focused. I'm very pleased and awed.

I used the Tele Vue 2x Powermate to image the planets, as well as doing some visual observing. As usual, Tele Vue optics never disappoint! Highly recommend this great addition to your eyepiece line up!

Top notch optics

Works beautifully with my 115mm refractor + diagonal; am unable to obtain focus without diagonal. Top notch optics for both eyepiece observation and photo imaging with my DSLRs.

Outstanding optics!

This advanced version of a Barlow lens possesses outstanding optics; it will be a permanent fixture on my refractor for both observation and imaging.

Great Tele Vue Product

I received this a few days ago for viewing planets, particularly Saturn and Jupiter, though my Celestron C8 cassegrain. I have several 2-inch Tele Vue eyepices (up to 16 mm) as well as a 6.5mm and 9.0mm Baader Morpheus eyepieces for greater magnification. The Powermate used with the 20mm Nagler Type 2 and the 16mm Nagler Type 2 provided greater clarity and easier viewing than the Baader eyepieces. Views were sharp to the edge of the field. I was impressed. I'm thinking of replacing the Baaders with another shorter focal length Tele Vue with which to use with the Powermate for even greater clear, sharp magnifications on nights of good seeing. The Powermate is more expensive than a barlow, but the quality of magnification with really good eyepieces is worth the money. I'm not parting with this--ever!

Better Than A Barlow

The Televue 2 2X Powermate is a well-built item, as expected for Televue. Compared to a standard barlow, the Powermate delivers better off-axis correction, making it more suitable for imaging. For visual use, the Powermate pretty much disappears and the observer just enjoys the greater magnification.

Will the 4X Powermate adapter for your camera work with the 2X version? I don't really see the difference?
