About Tele Vue About > About Tele Vue > Astronomy @ 40

Astronomy magazine turned 40-years-old in 2013. In celebration of this anniversary, the August 2013 issue featured notable events in amateur astronomy over the past four decades.

We are pleased that they featured two of Tele Vue's keynote products: the original 13-mm Nagler 82° eyepiece, from 1980, and equally groundbreaking 13-mm Ethos 100°, eyepiece from 2007. Astronomy senior editor Michael Bakich writes that "we live in our hobby's golden age".

Tele Vue is proud to have been a part of it. We congratulate Astronomy for their contributions to amateur astronomy and wish them continued success in the years to come.
