TeleVue Panoptic 19mm
The perfect choice for a first quality eyepiece for an 8" f/10 SCT! In a 2000mm scope it runs just over 100X with a eye friendly 2mm exit pupil (8" scope). With a true FOV of .63 degrees it perfectally frames the full moon and works well for most of the common deep sky objects. Best of all it works well with the Barlow without getting into obscene high magnifications! The eye relief is perfect and still works well with glasses on. It will also serve you well if you ever buy an f/6 or faster scope where it will still have excellent edge sharpness. It is more expensive then a Meade 18mm SWA or a Celestron 19mm Axiom but try those in an f/5 scope sometime! Also Tele Vue stands behind their products better then the rest! Try one, you'll LOVE it!

This is the eyepiece I've been looking for! Truly a revelation in viewing perfection. I've owned many plossl and cheaper wide field designs, but none of them are close in image sharpness and contrast! The only fault I can find is the edge coma in my f5 dobs however when barlowed ( and I assume paracorred ) this disappears. In my 8" f7 newt, my lunar and planetary scope, the views are perfection! My next purchase is going to be the 22mm and 27mm panoptics. THANKS AL !!!

My favorite all around binoviewing eyepiece. Super comfortable to use, exceptional views, compact, light weight. When viewing M42 (through binos) you want to just jump in. I recommend getting the Orion Winged Rubber Eyeguard (catalog # 07406) if you plan to use it for binoviewing.

This was my first premium eyepiece, bought two years ago and is still in my collection. All aspects including sharp image to the edge of the field, wide field of view, light weight, small size, ease of use in any telescope, make it one of the great eyepieces for astronomy hobbyists to enjoy. Highly recommended.

This was the first premium eyepiece that I bought. Although it took me a while to work up to dropping that much money on an ep, I have not regreted it one bit. This is one of my favorite ep's. It works great in every telescope that I have used it in from f/5-f/10. Comfortable eye relief with a sharp wide fov in a small little package.

Favourite ep for use with my Ranger.
I also have the 15mm Pan, and the 2.5x and 5x Powermates. All combinations work very well, pretty much covering the scope's useful magnification range.

Outstanding eyepiece. Excellent contrast, and sharp to the edge. M42 on the TV102 is spectacular, using this one.

Excellent eyepiece and probably my favourite in all my scopes. Small light and tack sharp across the entire 68 field. The scopes I use this in are:

Celestron C9.25
Orion Optics OMC140 Maksutov
Zeiss Telementor
Vixen GP90
ETX90
ST80

Good results are expected from an eyepiece like this in slow scopes, but it also seems to bring the best out of my faster scopes like the short tube 80. Expensive, but if you want the sharpest view possible then you can't go far wrong with this Panoptic.

Based on the review at Todd Gross's web site I bought a pair of these to use with a binoviewer. Todd was right, this is the perfect eyepiece for the Bino Vue. It has even become one of my favorite stand alone eyepieces. A small sized and reasonably priced alternative to the 16mm, 17mm, 20mm & 22mm Naglers.
