Used TeleVue 20mm Nagler Type 2 - 2" Eyepiece
The Type 2 Nagler 20mm Eyepiece is considered by many to be among the finest pieces of optical glass and design to come out of TeleVue, and there's quite a bit to support their beliefs on that matter! This Japanese crafted eyepiece is of a type renowned for stunning levels of sharpness, jaw dropping 82 degree field of view, and general all around superior quality. Truly, the 20mm Nagler has withstood the test of time admirably, with optical quality and sharpness that still manages to be top of the line so long after the eyepieces initial introduction.
A truly superb eyepiece by any measure, this Japanese made piece of hardware may weigh a considerable amount for an eyepiece at 3lbs, but it is well worth that minor issues tiny inconveniences. The former flagship of Tele Vue's eyepieces, the 20mm is one of the better possible investments for those interested in a high quality eyepiece of notable size.
Beyond it's simple quality and legendary reputation, the Nagler Type 2 20mm is also a rare and valuable collectors item due to the fact that TeleVue is no longer making new Type 2 20mm Nagler's! That makes this not only a supremely useful eyepiece, but also a marvelous conversation piece and a path to fine bragging rights!
