In recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, Tele Vue is proud to celebrate their founder's contribution to the greater effort that made the mission possible and ultimately successful. The special, limited edition commemorative Tele Vue Apollo 11mm eyepiece pays tribute to the simulator program that was invaluable to astronaut training and to the direct influence it had on the eyepieces we enjoy today.
Each Apollo 11 eyepiece is engraved with a unique serial number, and includes a number-matching medallion. Tele Vue developed unique packaging for the Apollo 11 eyepiece that consists of a high quality presentation box with a message from Al, form-fitting foam lining, and shows off the eyepiece and medallion.
We have a few of these left. The serial numbers are: 155, 169 and 185.
Quantities are limited. Once we run out of stock, there's no guarantee we will receive more.
The Tele Vue Apollo 11 eyepiece offers a breath-taking 85° apparent field of view, and the same demanding performance found in Tele Vue's Ethos eyepiece design; sharp, high contrast views from edge to edge, with virtually zero distortion or abberation.
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.
One of the most expensive features of good optics is contrast, and the more, the better. The apparent field of view is wider than standard Plossl eyepieces, permitting you to see more.
