This is one of the best Naglers yet, and rivals the well-respected Meade 14mm UWA. It gives sharp, clean, contrasty views, has good eye-relief for comfortable viewing, and has very minimal blackout or kidney-bean effect. In addition, it is wonderfully compact. Highly recommended!

I agree with this entry, although I've never used a 14uwa.  This eclipses the original 9 nagler based on contrast, full field sharpness....  and most important of all...weight... It's about half as massive and close to my 4.8 in weight.  The 9 always gives me anxiety when I use it in my SPC-102 and RF-80, with me thinking that it will fall off the scopes. It is well suited for my 10" f/4.5 though, but rides rather tall on the focuser and yields 127x...... great for deep-sky.  The 13 is fabulous on my Nexstar 8i at 156x.  I think I'm going to get a lot of use out of this and it is worth the money, since it blows away Kellners (ugh), Orthos and Plossls in every respect.  In the RF-80 @ f/5, the field is absolutely sharp across the entire field !!!!  I've yet to try it in the 10".
Al Nagler should get a Nobel Prize for his contributions to amateur astronomy.....I think I'm spoiled...............

what kind of scope are you using that you could push the magnification to this level (13mm with 5x powermate)?

Wide 82*...big visual impact in very small package. Is more fun than recent 16mm T5 Nagler - longer eye relief and larger exit aperture. Better comfort to hold view over 16mm T5 when eye pupil slightly dilated. Very high contrast, color saturated image. Very good sharpness but, under critical testing, seems not "ultimately" so. Probably binoviews OK but seems unlikely if for bright moon or daylight from amount of kidney bean distortion. It's new - time will tell.

Mine is the longish commentary above. For reference, factory eye relief spec supposed to be 12mm but I carefully measured this at 11mm off from top of eyepiece.

I have a pair of these that I use for medium/high power in my Mark V binoviewers. These work very well for planetary use and well as planetary nebula, small globular clusters and galaxies. NOTE: If you are going to use these in a Baader Mark V binoviewer, you need to add a parfocalizing ring where the barrel meets the body to make sure that they focus equally. I was able to compare them side to side to the venerable 12.5mm Docter UWA and these held their ground rather well. The Docters did seem to eek out just very slight bit more detail but the 13mm Naglers were much more easy to use as far as ergonomics are concerned. For binoviewing that is a must. Also, compared to the $650 a pop Docters, these guys are quite a bargain.

This is by far the best eyepiece in the 12 to 14 mm range that I have ever looked thru.Small,good eye relief,wide field of view,flat field and sharp to the field stop.What more could ask for.Go for it.

TeleVue Nagler Type 6 13mm
This is my favorite e.p. I use it in my 4.5 starblast. Xt6 and 10" Dob and get wonderfull views. Sure It is expensive but I believe its worth it for the quality you get in return,not to mention used they sell much cheaper in near new or new condition. If you own a starblast 4.5 dob try a 13t6 in it, most e.ps suffer badly in this scope from coma and other aberations but the 13 is awsome in it as well as the 9mm t6. Anyway this my most used e.p for all of my scopes.

TeleVue Nagler Type 6 13mm
Used in a 10" F/5,6 dob.

For a deep sky EP, it is a great deal, all the T6s are. I don't care for it as a planetary piece, i always saw a lot of lateral color. I also don't like the 12mm ER, BUT that is only a personal preference. But it was very sharp, nicely contrasty, good stuff.

I use a 14mm Pentax XW now in its place.

This is one of the best eyepieces I have used so far in this power range. Works great in fast scopes. I use it in my 17.5" f/5 and friends f/4.5 and it is sharp to the edge. Everyone who has looked through it is amazed, even more so when I do the field of view trick(50 degree eyepiece first, then a Nagler. I chose this instead of the Meade 14mm UWA, because the camera shop didn't have any to try. But, I was happy for trying the T6 out and I love the clarity and compact design. Though, with the old 13, you kinda felt you got more glass by the extra weight. I haven't noticed any softness anywhere in the 82 degree fov. I haven't used it yet for planetary(sharp on planets too) since I typically use my scope for dso's. I like the design and performance so much that I will buy the 9mm T6 very soon. Worth the 280 dollars. Its a life long keeper, unless something truly amazing comes along.

TeleVue Nagler Type 6 13mm
I have to say, this is one of the most impressive eyepieces I have used. It is every bit as good as my old 13mm Nagler, 14mm Meade UWA, and 14mm Pentax Xl. If I could change one thing it would be the rubber eyecup. You get a much larger FOV with the cup folded down, but the cap only fits with it rolled up. The eyecup is very stiff. The eyepiece must be good if that is the only complaint I can muster up.

Contrast, contrast, contrast!
I've seen fuzzies with this 13mm that were never apparent in any other eyepiece owned, im my 8" Schmidt.
Perfect size for the 1.25" diagonal.
The view envelopes the eye for beautiful wide fields.
