If you love TeleVue eyepieces, you'll want to own this celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing! Because Al Nagler, the founder of TeleVue, was an optical engineer at Farrand Optical Company back in the 60's and designed an optical system for a simulator used by the Apollo astronauts to train for their Moon landing! Al was an integral part of the Apollo 11 mission, and it was, in part, the impetus that later launched TeleVue as a company as well as the wide field view he had through the Lunar Excursion Module (LEM) trainer window!
Al Nagler did not realize it at the time, but that experience ultimately resulted in the "Nagler" Eyepiece. TeleVue has created this special limited edition eyepiece (only 300 made) to celebrate Al's contribution to the mission and the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11. The special, limited edition Commemorative Tele Vue Apollo 11 mm Eyepiece pays tribute to the simulator program that was invaluable to astronaut training and to the direct influence it had on the eyepieces TeleVue makes today.
Tele Vue developed unique packaging for the Apollo 11 eyepiece that will consist of a high quality presentation box with a message from Al. Every one of the limited 300-edition eyepieces will be serialized, and a serialized commemorative medallion will be included with this product packaging. Note: Photo of the medallion is tentative and the final design could change somewhat.
