TeleVue is well reputed as being the best eyepiece manufacturer in the world. They continue to stay on the cutting edge with the DeLite line-up of eyepieces.
The DeLite eyepieces have been carefully engineered to be a lighter, smaller version of the Delos eyepieces. Inheriting from the advances in the Ethos eyepieces, the DeLite still retain the pure optical quality of Delos along with the 20mm eye-relief, unique sliding/locking eyeguard, and Dioptrx-readiness.
The DeLite feature a 62° apparent field of view, giving them a 10° edge over the 52° plossls typically included with many telescopes. DeLite provides the same demanding performance of the Ethos: crisp, sharp images from centre to edge with virtually no distortion.
One of the goals when producing top-of-the-line eyepieces is providing plenty of eye relief for those that wear eyeglasses, and to help prevent eyelashes from touching the glass. Long eye relief is also helpful to provide breathing space, so the eyepiece won't fog up as easily in the cold. The new, continuously adjustable height eyeguard can be locked into any position. The eyeguard can also rotate to simplify the use with Dioptrx astigmatism correcting lenses.
Tele Vue eyepieces are best-in-class, and truly exquisite. The attention to every detail, from producing the highest-quality optics to the fit and finish, and you'll know why you must have at least one in your collection. We bet you can't own just one.
