About Tele Vue 24mm Panoptic 1.25""

This 24mm Panoptic, designed to produce the largest true field possible in a 1-1/4" eyepiece. (Its 27mm field stop is the same as the 32mm Tele Vue Plossl).

The higher power darkens the sky background while the greater magnification yields more details on extended objects. Further, its light weight (1/2 lb.) and tapered top instantly make the 24mm Panoptic the ideal eyepiece for getting the maximum field for binocular viewers.

The 24 Panoptic has all the features you would expect from Tele Vue: a comfortable 15mm eye relief, full multicoating, full field sharpness for any speed telescope, parfocal with most Tele Vue 1-1/4" eyepieces, filter threads, grip ring, fold down eyeguard, and safety undercuts.

The Tele Vue 24mm Panoptic 1.25"" is commonly used for Astronomy and more.

Tele Vue 24mm Panoptic 1.25"" Reviews

As advertised


from Guthrie, OK  -  Casual/ Recreational

Just as I've heard, this is the eyepiece which sets the standard in my EP collection. Additionally, if the stars aren't pinpoints, I know my scope needs collimation. It's hard to explain, but the optics give a depth to the FOV, almost like you're viewing from space itself. Used this in a f/4.9 12" dob so far.

My New Favorite Eyepiece


from Fredericksburg, VA

Incredibly crisp views. I like it better than the Nagler! For the widest possible FOV in a 1.25" eyepiece, this is the best!

Good buy for the ambitioned observer


from Augsburg, Germany  -  Avid Adventurer

The Panoptic 24 mm produces very sharp pictures even if used on a fast f/4.5 telescope where only the very outer areas show slightly deformed stars. Using the eyepiece lets you enjoy pictures with rich contrast and a very comfortable field of view overlooking also bigger celestial objects.

The Panoptic 24mm is a terrific eyepiece


from Northwest Ohio  -  Professional Guide

This is my wide field eyepiece and it is a joy to use in my 8" Schmidt Newtonian telescope.
