Tele Vue PMT-5126 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!

Directly accepts all 1.25" eyepiece
Threaded for 1.25" filters
Works well with diagonals, unlike many normal Barlow lenses
Accepts optional PTR-1250 SLR camera adapter (imaging w/o eyepiece @ ~7.7x magnification

Was able to shoot Mars and see the polar ice caps and surface detail. Photos aren't crisp because the seeing conditions were horrible. Seeing has been pretty awful lately, and the one time it was good it was very windy. Once the winds calm down and the seeing clears up, I'm sure I'll be able to get some spectacular images.

Unbelievable clarity

Tele Vue is top shelf. Of course they are pricey but you truly get what you pay for. Pick a starting place and get started on your collection of eyepieces and accessories on piece at a time. That's what I did.
