The image quality was good too.

There's also plenty of eye relief for eyeglass wearers.

I wanted to wait before I did this review because I wanted to get some experience with this lens first. I have taken out this lens on three one hour observation sessions - each with varying seeing conditions and I feel comfortable reviewing this product now.

I own an Orion XT8 - it's a great telescope - and in my humble opinion - the best combination you'll get for your money. I call it the Muhammad Ali of telescopes. I used the Televue 32 plossl eye piece on various objects, deep space as well as planets - in city lights as well as at dark locations.

Here is what I believe, what you see in your telescope of course depends on how large its mirror is. But I can tell you that this lens will get the most out of whatever mirror you have. It is great in light polluted skies - great for quickly finding objects and then studying them in depth. Great for just roaming the night sky. But where this lens truly shines is at dark sites.

If you get this lens with a decent telescope - at a really dark site - and have good dark adaptation - this lens will blow your mind. Nothing else you try on your telescope will match the Televue 32's view. Star clusters are so incredibly rich and crystal clear - its astounding - its like listening to unheard notes when you first get good headphones. Unfortunately it is also one of those experiences you can't honestly capture in words. You have to see it for yourself.

Of course the lens has good eye relief and holds its edges sharp. But the first thing that will hit you with this lens is how bright you see things. If you get a chance to see the Orion Nebula with this lens - well - lets just say you'll keep coming back every night its in the sky.

So bottom line, if you can afford it - get it. I do think it is a bit over priced, which is why I gave it 4 stars. But you won't feel cheated.

This is a wonderful eyepiece by TeleVue and a mainstay when I'm out viewing!

Pros: The eyepiece is very clear, offers very high contrast, no apparent distortion or aberrations, and is a great low-power eyepiece (depending on the focal length of your scope in millimeters divided by your eyepiece focal length in millimeters--typically 300x power is considered max for atmospheric conditions, but be sure to check with your telescope's manufacturer). Although the field is about 50° with this eyepiece, the fact that it has less internal elements than wide-field eyepieces means that objects will be brighter (typically) with a Plössl like this. I own and use 11mm, 15mm, 20mm, 25mm, and 32mm Plössls by TeleVue and they outperform any Plössl out there. It is definitely worth a bit more to go with a higher-end eyepiece, especially since it is a purchase you'll only make once-- eyepieces don't really wear out if handled properly. :-) I've used this eyepiece for wonderful views of the moon and constellations. I often start out using this eyepiece to locate the object that I'm searching for and then switch to more powerful eyepieces for closer views. However, you can boost it's power with a Barlow, which is what I sometimes do with a TeleVue 3x Barlow, only adding to it's versatility and with no real noticeable loss of brightness. I use this eyepiece often on a Orion XT8 every time I go out viewing and it is simply excellent.

Cons: The eye relief on this 32mm is big. I don't wear glasses, but this eyepiece should be useable for those who do. If you do wear glasses, however, generally Plössls like this may not be right for you and you should probably go with a TeleVue Radian (or similar longer-length eyepieces).

There are no more common eyepieces in the world than Plossls. They are standard as included accessories with almost every telescope. They are offered at discounted prices everywhere, and they range in price from $12 to $190. Their popularity is due mostly to their simple design and ease of manufacture - they're not easy to mess up.

However, the human eye can always tell the difference between quality and junk, and when you buy junk, you'll know it. This is quality. Televue Plossls are extremely good, and among them the 32mm is exceptional. It yields bright, clear, low power views from edge to edge, without distortion or color anomalies. There's also plenty of eye relief for eyeglass wearers.

Televue products are expensive, but worth every penny. If you can afford it - buy it.

Highly recommended.

5 stars.

I used to have the old smooth side plossl 32mm that I used in telescopes. The barrel was a bit thick and could not fit in all 1.25" tubes/extensions, diagonals, etc... The old version also did not have an eyecup. I think the outfocus was also much greater than compared to other eyepieces. This may have made using binoviewers to reach focus a bit easier.
I guess the biggest advantage of the televue is the ease of positioning of the eye in relation to the image that you see. You don't have to pan your head as much in order to see the image perfectly as much as some cheaper eyepieces. The image quality was good too. Maybe not ridiculously better than an ordinary plossl. But I've noticed that cheaper plossls tend to have inconsistent quality. You might get something very good, or you might get something really so-so.
It's a good eyepiece, but just remember it is still a plossl, which has its limitations on total field of view, etc. There are much more advanced eyepieces these days (radians, panoptics, etc).
