The 35mm has a large true field with plenty of eye relief for eyeglass wearers. When combined with a Paracorr to correct the coma of an f/4.5 Newtonian, performance is spectacular across the 68 degree field. Imagine, sharp star clusters at the extreme edge of the field along with a 6.8mm exit pupil!
The Televue Wide-Field design was the starting point for the design of the Panoptic. A lens interface between the eyepiece and Barlow lens was added as a way to keep size, weight, and cost to a minimum while improving edge of field performance even further.
