The year 2020 holds some big product anniversaries for our company. Tele Vue was founded in 1977 by Al Nagler,

originally to sell his television projection lenses (hence the name “Tele Vue” to match the abbreviation “TV” — read

“Tele Vue: What’s in a Name?” blog post). In 1980 Al introduced Tele Vue to the amateur astronomy market with its

inaugural range of four Plössl eyepieces (26mm, 17mm, 10.4mm, and 7.4mm). Additional models followed over the

years until the final five focal lengths were released 25-years ago (1995).

Say ... I bet you could make a nice refractor from that projection lens.
