Everyone knows the Televue Nagler brand when it comes to quality eyepieces. They have a reputation amongst some amateur astronomers as being the best, with a wide field of view, sharp pinpoint stars across the entire field and high contrast. The Nagler Type 6 range are consistent across all focal lengths. They’re also one of the most expensive eyepieces you can buy. So what do you get for your money? Is it worth spending that much money on a single eyepiece?
This article sets out to review and compare the 13mm Nagler Type 6 with 3 other premium eyepieces at the same focal length – the Pentax 14mm XW, the Meade Series 4000 14mm UWA and the newer Meade Series 5000 14mm UWA.
Hopefully this review and shootout will provide you with the information you need to determine if your hard earned dollar is best spent on this premium eyepiece.
