Looking through a Nagler eyepiece is like taking a spacewalk. That's because the 82° apparent field of view seems almost boundless: you have to move your eye around to take in the entire scene. The exquisite sharpness, contrast, and comfort — in addition to the monster AFOV — make Naglers the eyepieces of choice for advanced amateur and professional astronomers.
Nagler eyepieces belong in the equipment arsenal of every serious planetary and deep-sky observer.
This eyepiece's 7-element Nagler Type 6 design is based on the original patented Nagler design. This new 7-element design update for the short focal length Nagler deserves its own designation. Using different exotic materials, coating processes, and design ingenuity, Al has massaged more eye-relief, contrast, and true field of view into the shorter focal length Naglers, while maintaining the absolute sharpness of the originals. Eye relief is 12mm.
The 3.5mm Nagler Type 6 is a natural progression of 1.4x power steps from 7mm and 5mm Naglers. You don't have to sacrifice field in order to gain sharpness and power. And, you're not limited to slow scopes, or have to squint through pinhead lenses. These are the lunar and "planetary" eyepieces with field to spare.

I am not sure which Televue eyepiece series to purchase, Nagler, Panoptic or Radian. I wear glasses occasionally for distance, but not for viewing through binoculars. I will be buying my first telescope from you shortly and am planning to buy either the Meade LX200GPS 10", 12" or 14" with UHTC. I want to decide how much money I am willing to spend first. I will want a set of Televue eyepieces for my new scope due to the excellent reputation and reviews I have read. This will be my first telescope. I notice the Naglers have the widest field of view and the shortest eye relief. I assume the Radian have the narrowest field of view with the longest eye relief. Any suggestions?
If this is your first scope I suggest going with the Nagler. Even though they will have the shortest eye relief the extra wide field of view will come in very handy as you are trying to learn how to use your scope. The easiest way to say it is that the wider the field of view the more forgiving it is when aligning on very distant objects.
Will these eyepieces work with my Celestron AstroMaster 70?
Yes the 1.25" TeleVue Nagler Telescope Eyepieces will work with a Celestron AstroMaster 70.
