Tele Vue 16 mm Nagler Type 5 Eyepiece

This is the 16 mm focal length Nagler design eyepiece from Tele Vue, with the 82° apparent field of view, and amazing optical quality you expect from Tele Vue. When designing the Naglers, the aim was to approach the wide angle perspective of naked eye vision, while maintaining the highest degree of sharpness, contrast, and viewing comfort.

The 16 mm Nagler Type 5 is a scaled down version of the "king of the field," 31 mm. The new 16 mm is a smaller, lighter (0.45 lb), 1.25" only, 6-element design which replaces the 8-element 16 mm Nagler Type 2. This exciting little high contrast eyepiece looks like a 19 mm Panoptic, but packs the visual impact and sharpness we all expect from the 82° Nagler series. This eyepiece offers owners of 1.25" only scopes the largest possible true field in an 82° apparent field eyepiece. Great for small scopes and Bino Vues.

Tele Vue's philosophy of "showing no field unless it's fine" stresses full field image quality as the ingredient for impressive views. Blackened lens edges, anti-reflection threads and rubber eyeguards deliver maximum contrast. Adapter skirts for 2" focusers on larger 1¼" models and rubber grip rings are additional Tele Vue "firsts". 100% full field visual inspection on their own in-house flat-field test instruments guarantees the performance of every Tele Vue eyepiece.
