The 41mm Panoptic eyepiece is a big brother to the 24mm Panoptic (largest 1.25" field). With its 46mm field stop, the 41mm Panoptic delivers the largest 2" field possible. An adjustable and removable screw-type top allows quick, comfortable eye positioning. The scalloped shape gives a positive grip.
Like all Tele Vue eyepieces, these new models employ matched coatings along with the latest coating techniques to maximize transmission and contrast. Optical and cosmetic inspection of every eyepiece assures you'll get all the performance inherent in the design.

The wide field view with this eyepiece are incomparable. I love to use it when I'm not looking for anything in particular, but just want to cruise the Milky Way. Star clouds, bright nebulae, open clusters, all seem to be right in front of me. I actually feel like I'm floating in space with the 41mm Panoptic.
I WAS THRILLED WITH THIS EYEPIECE. I PUT IT ON MY NEXSTAR 8 GPS AND WAS REALLY IMPRESSED. SOMETIMES WHEN I USE "GO TO" ON MY SCOPE, THE OBJECT IS OUTSIDE MY FIELD OF VIEW OF MY STANDARD 40 MM EYEPIECE. WITH THIS ONE, EVERY OBJECT WAS IN MY SIGHT. EVEN THOUGH THIS IS A HEAVY EYEPIECE, IT DID NOT AFFECT THE BALANCE OF MY SCOPE. I GREAT BARGAIN!!!
This is the 1st eyepiece you should buy if you own a 16" or larger truss tube dobsonian telescope. It is simply the best eyepiece one can buy for such an instrument.
