    Default Televue Panoptic 22mm



    I bought one last summer. I love this EP, and am sorry it has been discontinued.

    Just visited my local Astro shop today and was chatting with the owner. I happened to mention how much I like the Panoptic 22mm he sold me last year, and he said that he'd gotten a few in stock before they were phased out. So if anyone is looking for this particular eyepiece, give Dick Cookman at Enerdyne in Sutton Bay Michigan a call.

    TeleVue rarely leaves a hole in their lineup, so the ONE caveat when an older popular eyepiece design is discontinued; wait and see if they replace it with a better one. That length in the Pans is great, but a 22mm Delos..............but, there might not be a Delos in the offing, so if you want the Pan, get 'em while you can.

    Almost bought one, then saw the 24mm Panoptic, forgot all about the 22.
    Newtman but some refractors allowed.
