TeleVue Nagler 9mm
Good high power eyepiece, but not as good as an 8.8 Meade UWA.

Decent eyepiece. I don't like dual barrels. Had a lot of focus problems. For some reason it has a much different focal height than the rest of my TV EPs. Had a lot of blackout problems. it was my least used EP when I owned it.

However, I do remember that it gave nice images, and it was a good price for a nagler.

>I use a 9mm Type I on my 16-inch Newtonian. See my web page:- http://www.chess-dictionary-chesmayne.net/Index-Constellations.htm --- for an extensive discussion of my telescope(s) and accessories? I also have the 16mm Type II as well and a 2-inch Tele-Vue coma corrector.
Yes - the 9mm is pretty good - pricy - but worth it due to the 82d wide-field and the flat-field when used with the coma corrector.  Excellent when used on a 63mm Zeiss refractor.  Now - how much did you say the 31mm Type IV was again?

I really like this eyepiece. Even though I found it slightly (very slight!) dimmer than the Type 6, it was not enough to warrent replacement. Eye relief is very comfortable. Kidney beaning is more evident than the 8.8mm Meade UWA but the view is better in the Nagler. Great, classic eyepiece.

The 9 is one of the classic Naglers, and maybe one of the classic eyepieces of our era. As nearly everyone else seems to have noted, it's got a tremendously wide field with little deterioration of sharpness except at the extreme edges. I've used mine, which I bought shortly after TeleVue began selling them, on scopes including TV Genesis, Cave 10" reflector, C-11, and A-P 5" and 6" apo's, and it's performed beautifully on all. The 9 is one of those pieces of equipment that just is "right"--I wonder if Al Nagler had something of about this focal length in mind when he first conceived the concept of the Naglers? It's a true workhorse in my lineup of eyepieces, one of the rare few that function equally well for seeing fine detail within Jupiter's bands or a good panoramic view of the Veil. While its weight could be an issue (mostly to users of smaller, lighter scopes, perhaps), and the relatively short eye relief may concern some eyeglass wearers, for me this eyepiece is the one I'd keep if I could keep only one.

Nice wide, sharp field. Good contrast (this was one of the recent models with the better coatings). Eye relief is a little limited but I can still use it with thin-lensed eyeglasses. I actually like the 2" skirt, as most of my other eyepieces have a 2" barrel. Distorted with very slight lateral color. This was previously my favorite eyepiece (before the type 4 Naglers and the Pentax SMC-XLs).

Shows its age, but still a solid performer. I own a smooth side 9mm Nagler that is about 10 years old, but have nothing to complain about when I observe with it. The newer Nagler may be smaller and have better coatings, but this one delivers and for the used prices you can get these for right now you can have an excellent ultra-wide field of view for the price of a Meade Superwide. I bought mine on astromart for just $145, making it a great value and an eyepiece I will probably hold onto for years to come!

Awesome premium wide field EP. Made somewhat obsolete by the Radian EP's and their superior eye relief.

Response:

This is my most used eyepiece for my 10" f/4.5.  It provides great contrast and allows me to see extra faint fuzzies in the field of view that I had missed before (e.g. near M81/82).  My only criticism is that it is too heavy for most smaller scopes.

Far superior to the UO Konig 10mm. (8" f/10)

This was the first Nagler I purchased in the late 1980's. It is the "Japan" version with no eyecup. I think this Nagler is a classic collectible, which I enjoy showing off to young astronomers. This "antique" commands respect: It is sharp across a flat field and gives great contrast. ER is 12 mm - my acceptable minimum. As for size and weight, it is one of the smaller of the early Naglers - much better than the Type 2's in this regard. I originally used it with my 8" C8 Plus and now use it often with my TV-85 on all objects.
