This Sky & Telescope "Hot Product" is
designed to produce the largest true field possible in a 1¼" eyepiece.
(Its 27mm field stop is the same as the 32mm Tele Vue Plössl).
The higher power darkens the sky background while the greater magnification yields
more details on extended objects. Further, its light weight (1/2 lb.), comfortable 15mm eye
relief, and tapered top instantly make the 24mm Panoptic the ideal eyepiece for
getting the maximum field for binocular viewers.
- blackened lens edges
- filter threads
- rubber grip rings
- cover for the eyeguard
- an undercut in the barrel for extra locking security
