The Art of Sketching the Moon at the Eyepiece (3/21/2018)
AstroBin.com user "Tanglebones" uses a combination of Tele Vue Panoptics eyepiece with Powermate™ image amplifiers for close-up views of the Moon when sketching. The resulting sketches bring a 3D perspective to the lunar features that would be lost in photographs.
The 24mm PanoptIc yields an exceptional 20x view on the 76mm APO, one of the widest, brightest views I have seen. In combination with the 60° viewer [diagonal] it makes locating birds about as easy as it gets with a scope of this quality.— S. Ingraham. "Tele Vue Upgrades!".

- Best crafted eyepieces available. View is like being on the main deck of the starship Enterprise. — R.D., CA
- The best low power wide-field eyepiece on the market: super sharp, high contrast & excellent aberration correction. — T.B., OH
- I was told the Panoptic redefines wide-field. Now that I have one, they do! Tack sharp is indeed correct. — D.B., ID
