Televue Nagler 12mm Type 2 eyepiece. This eyepiece is machined to fit either a standard 1.25 eyepiece mount or an oversize 2 inch mount. The ocular WAS in LNIB condition but I just put thumbscrew marks on the barrel playing with it. Original end caps & box. Purchased from OPT 6 years ago. I also have a Lumicon 2" enhanced diagonal with adapter to fit the visual back of a SCT. See Ad 238650. See 3rd ad (238669) for Nagler 20mm Type 2 ocular as well. Fourth Ad (238390) is for a set of Galoc 1.25 inch oculars. Fifth Ad (238661) is for set of Vernonscope colored filters.

For this 12mm Type 2 Nagler I will consider all reasonable offers in the $200 - $250 range over the next few days. Good luck.

Background info on TeleVue Nagler 12 mm
(Type 2, $375 list, about $300 street)

The first of the Type 2 Naglers, the 12 mm continues the tradition of optical excellence in the Nagler line. The Type 2 eyepieces contain 8 elements instead of 7, and do not suffer from the Kidney Bean Effect. However, some of the eye relief went away (check one out beforehand if you wear glasses while observing) and some observers feel (myself included) that the Type 2 Naglers are somewhat less sharp than their Type 1 counterparts.

The compromise in design arose out of necessity. The Type 2 has less Kidney Bean Effect and paid for it with eye relief. The 12 mm Nagler Type 2 has been discontinued in favor of the 12 mm Type 4 which while lighter has had to make its own design compromises to achieve that weight savings. Make no mistakes, the 12mm Type 2 is an awesome medium power eyepiece. ********************************************************************
Note: A Nagler 12mm Type 4 sold 12/30 on another auction site for $310. Opportunity to make a killing here.
