TeleVue Plossl 13mm
Great eyepiece for what it is. Very hi light transmission, sharpness and contrast. It weighs practically nothing. Don't wish for a rubber eye cup; get a winged one from Orion. The Orion eyecup works a lot better than the current standard fold down cups IMO. The Orions block light where it needs to be blocked. The current 15mm TV plossl is a great example of a very poor fold down eyecup IMO.....I can't see the whole field of view unless I fold it down and then it does you no good!! And by the way there is no "e" in the way Televue spells plossl or anybody else that sells these things for that matter. Clear skies

This is my go-to eyepiece for mid-power lunar and planetary observing. It exhibits no false color and ghosting, even when viewing a bright moon with no filter. Used on my Orion 5" Mak, images snap into focus and are clear to the edge. FOV is typical for a plossl, but great for the moon and planets and decent for DSOs. Eye relief is a little tight but not uncomfortable, a person with glasses may be a bit challenged but will still be able to view. Typical Televue quality for both glass and construction - built to last. Highly recommended.

A very good basic Plossel. Eye relief is decent for it's focal length and the view is good throughout the field. I do wish for a rubber eyecup though.

This EP is very very sharp in the entire FOV,great contrast,eye relief is great and this EP works excellent with a 2X barlow for high power planetary viewing,,,,in a 8"F6 Dob the Orion Nebula fills the entire FOV and shows E and F even on a full moon night,if you can find 1 grab it and hold on to it.

Happy Gazing !!!!!
