Hot New Products for 2008
Observers have long sung the praises of low-power, wide-field views of the
heavens. But that's misleading. Wide-field views are spectacular, but
"low-power" got there because years ago only low-power eyepieces could show
a wide field. In reality, higher magnification always provides a darker sky
background, shows fainter stars, and delivers better resolution. Experienced
observers usually select the highest magnification eyepiece that still has
enough field of view to encompass their target. Enter Tele Vue's 13-mm
Ethos, the first astronomical eyepiece with 100° apparent field of view.
For a given magnification, it shows 50% more sky than the previous
widest-field oculars. You can read all the details of this remarkable
eyepiece in our review in last October's issue, page 41.

Ethos™: A Triple-Digit Field of View
Excerpts from Sky & Telescope,
October 2007, review
by senior editor Dennis di Cicco.
A Triple-Digit Field of View
Tele Vue’s new 13-mm eyepiece is about to transform deep-sky
Sensibly perfect. No meaningful improvements possible.
Just as the original 13-mm Nagler set a new standard
for deep-sky observing in 1981, the Ethos sets a new standard today.
Owning one will guarantee long lines at your telescope during any star
[I]f I were dropped on a desert island tomorrow with
the 12-inch scope and only one eyepiece, I’d want it to be the Ethos.
Some of the views were simply stunning. The globular
cluster Messier 13 in Hercules appeared as a sprawling sphere with
thousands of resolved stars, many sweeping outward in sinuous arcs.
Even under the most critical examination, bright
stars look sharp and round across the entire field.
The Ethos hasn’t sacrificed one bit of on-axis
performance in achieving its 100° apparent field.
[T]he view of a starry sky with the Ethos and
TV-NP127is is nothing short of breathtaking.
Besting the fields of other astronomical eyepieces
by more than 20% in diameter and more than 50% in area, Ethos is a
stunning optical achievement.
