16 singles + 9 pair = 34 total. They usually get scattered around, and then I go around with spackling buckets, collecting them and put them back in their respective stable stalls. These are ~working eyepieces~ intended for hard use, not display or show.    Tom

I'm just starting out, I only have three TVs.
delite 4 , 9 , 18 mm .

and they serve me very well, they don't collect dust.
I totally agree with tomdey.

2.5x and 5x powermate

 

3, 4, 5, 7, 9mm Delites

6mm Radian

 

Most of those I've haven't even looked through, but I have done some lunar viewing with the 7 and 9mm Delites. Hence my purchase of the 3,4 and 5.

 

If the 3,4, and 5 are anything like the 7 and 9, then that is money I will never regret spending.

Recently I have picked up 3 Powermates and a Paracorr 2. Not sure if those count.

Some

 

Panoptic: 41, 35, 22 

 

Nagler: 31, 16, 13, 11, 9, 7, 5, 3.5, 4.8 (2)

 

Ethos: 21, 13, 8 

 

Wide Field 32, 24 (2)

 

Paracorr 2, 2X Barlow.

 

Twenty-one if I counted right.

 

First one purchased: 24 mm Wide Field

 

Most recent purchase: 24 mm Wide Field

 

Most used: First 24 mm Wide Field: I added cross hairs, it's the eyepiece in my 50 mm SV .Lil' Rascal RACI finder

 

Least used: Latest 24 mm Wide Field. I bought it because it's in very good condition. The first one it definitely an workhorse that shows it's age.

Hmm. Nine as of today. Just got a used 18.2 Delite to try out. 

 

6, 8, 21 Ethos,

22, and 31 Naglers

27 Panoptic

55 Plossl

18.2 Delite

3-6 Nagler zoom,

 

And 2.5x Powermate, and Type 1 and 2 Paracorrs rounds out all Televues.

 

As for favorite, so far 31 Nagler. 

 

Least favorite would be the 55 Plossl (I don't like the vignetting).

Nagler:  26, 13, 9, 7, 5

Delos:  14, 8, 6, 4.5, 3.5

Powermate:  2.5X

 

This list has shrunk by a bit recently as I have sold off some Panoptics and a 6 Ethos while diversifying into a few Pentax XWs and some ES eyepieces.

Used to have a lot...now just the 2.5x Powermate and 2x Barlow.  Thinking about adding the 3x Barlow again.  No eyepieces though.

Hard to believe but only a few right now. 24 Pan, 9mm Nagler, 8mm Plossl. I also have 2x and 3x barlows.

 

I don't have anything against them. But they are a bit pricey and some a bit heavy. 

 

70 degrees is my preferred wide field and I like less glass eyepieces for Planets and Lunar.

 

I'm an equal opportunity brand purchaser.

 

EDIT: forgot I have a 40mm Plossl I got for Afocal night vision.

Of course... I will eventually have this complete set. At the moment, the image is a simulation, as best I can recall from my clairvoyant dream. I only have the 11mm, at this point...   Tom
