TeleVue 11mm Nagler Type 6
A superb ultra-wide medium power eyepiece for use with APO refractors. (It may well also be a superb high power EP for larger scopes, but thus far I have only used it in an FC-76 and an FS-102.)

I've had a rocky history with earlier Nagler eyepieces, but the type 6s work perfectly for me. None of the blackouts, kidney-beaning, or discolored edges that plagued me in the previous “types”. This new 11mm is no exception. Its edge-to-edge sharpness, contrast and color fidelity are amazing.

I’ve just had it out 3 times now, but am rushing out a review since there is so little information on the web about these. I will update the review if anything changes or additional “Features” or problems become apparent. In the meantime a 10!

Not: 9/20/03 - Still a 10... In addition to the above refractors, have now used it extensively in a 9.25 SCT for Mars observing. Sharp, great contrast and minimal internal reflections. M22 and M13 are completely resolved with wonderful color and dark lanes. (With the 11 type 6 in the C9.25 I bested a nearby 11" Starmaster (Zambuto mirror) the other night!)

This is one hell of an eyepiece.What can I say.It is my favourite highpower E.P for Dso,s. I seem to be able see much fainter with this EP in my 20" f/5 Obsession than any other eyepiece I own.It is one of the sharpest eyepieces I have ever looked thru .This and the 13 T6 to me are the two best T6.s. They both spend a lot of time in the focuser.

I've tried the 13, 11, 9, and 7 Type 6 Naglers. The 11 is my favorite. This eyepiece is razor sharp and it Barlows very well for high power views. Dynamite little wide field eyepiece in a very compact package.
