Tele Vue 1.25" / 2" Nagler Type 4 - 12mm Eyepiece, Gently Used Optically Perfect.
This gently used and optically perfect lens is amazing!! Check the reviews. I did notice that the lens could use a cleaning but I leave that to you. There are no scratches on the lenses and only the tiniest scratches on the barrel. The lens caps do have minor scratches. Unfortunately I cannot find the box but it will be packed securely for shipping.
As I recall, this eyepiece retailed for about $375. Get yourself a bargain here!
The Tele Vue 12mm Type 4 Nagler eyepiece provides excellent contrast, reduced pincushion, more true field, and longer eye-relief. With added eye-relief, the click-stop Instadjust eyeguard helps maintain proper eye distance and centration. For deep sky viewing, the comfort, clarity and contrast gets users closer to Tele Vue's "spacewalk" viewing goal.
All Tele Vue Nagler eyepieces have proprietary tuned full multi-coatings, blackened lens edges, high index glasses, fold-down eyeguards, rubber grip rings, cover for the eyeguard, an undercut in the barrel for extra locking security, and filter threads. All Tele Vue eyepiece lines are proprietary, in-house designs manufactured to their specifications and tolerances. Every eyepiece is individually tested at Tele Vue to ensure it meets high optical and cosmetic standards.
Take a "spacewalk" across a wide, sharp 82° apparent field
Compare a penny to a half dollar to see the relative size between a 50° and 82° apparent field - almost 3 times the area difference! And while others boast of impressive apparent field sizes, Tele Vue's philosophy of "showing no field unless it's fine" stresses full field image quality as the ingredient for impressive views. Blackened lens edges, anti-reflection threads and rubber eyeguards deliver maximum contrast. Adapter skirts for 2" focusers on larger 1¼" models and rubber grip rings are additional Tele Vue "firsts". Even 2"/1¼" barrel models have an additional feature allowing the 2" extension tube (EBX-2120, sold separately) to be screwed on, which permits use of 2" filters as well as 1¼". 100% full field visual inspection on TeleVue's flat-field test instruments guarantees the performance of every Tele Vue eyepiece.
You can bid with confidence as my feedback is as good as it gets.
Please contact me regarding any damage during shipping or if you feel the item does not match my description. I find it's better to work things out together and avoid eBay's cookie cutter approach.
