Sadly, the legendary Tele Vue 8-24mm Click-Stop zoom ocular was discontinued in 2009. This beautifully finished ocular was fully multi-coated and its optical design used seven lens elements in four groups. It has been replaced in the market place by the Vixen NLV 8-24mm Click-Stop zoom. (Vixen manufactured the Click-Stop zoom for Tele Vue; see the Astronomy and Photography Online index page for a review of the Vixen version.) Throughout its production life, the Tele Vue Click-Stop zoom was regarded as the best variable focal length ocular on the market. It had a reputation for being a sharp eyepiece with good contrast and it offered adequate eye relief. The Tele Vue Click-Stop zoom was designed to accept Tele Vue DIOPTRX astigmatism correction lenses (the Vixen NLV does not), so that eyeglass wearers can view without their glasses. These fit below the ocular's rubber eyecup ring. Tele Vue claimed that this zoom "combines beautifully with our Barlow lenses." Like all good zooms (and other Tele Vue oculars), it was rather expensive, with a 2009 online discount price of around $210.
