Superb mid-power plossl

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, NC Written on March 9, 2010
I bought a 15mm Tele Vue Plossl from Optics Planet in early 2006 and have used it extensively. It matches, in every way, the outstanding optical quality of my older, made-in-Japan TV Plossls which I acquired in the 1980s. I did rate it a 4 for Usability because of the undercut barrel. I prefer the older style smooth barrels. Like all eyepieces with undercut barrels, the edges of the undercut sometimes bang into the edge of a focuser/diagonal's compression ring.
Pros: Optical quality, Good investment (maintains its value)
Cons: None, other than the "safety" undercut...
Would recommend: Yes

Televue 15 mm plossl eyepiece

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, NM Written on December 31, 2007
Tested with a 130mm f5 reflector, sharp to the edge of a 1.2 degree field, very bright image, lightweight and mechanically rugged. No plastic on this unit. Rubber eyecup is soft and easily folded down. Eye relief is fine (I don't wear glasses). My only derate is for the undercut retaining ring which works to keep the eyepiece from falling out of the focuser, but tends to bind on compression holders, sometimes annoying.
Pros: Outstanding optical and mechanical quality
Cons: Undercut retaining ring...
Would recommend: Yes
