This Sky & Telescope “Hot Product for 2003” is designed to produce the largest true field possible in a 1-1/4" eyepiece. (Its 27mm field stop is the same as the 32mm Tele Vue Plössl).
The 24 Panoptic has all the features you would expect from Tele Vue: a comfortable 15mm eye relief, full multicoating, full field sharpness for any speed telescope, parfocal with most Tele Vue 1-1/4” eyepieces, filter threads, grip ring, fold down eyeguard, and safety undercuts that prevent accidental falls if the set screw loosens.
Mine is in like new condition with not even a set screw mark on the barrel.
Includes front and rear lens covers, original box and instructions.
