Featured Review - Read William Paolini's excellent field test review of the 5, 9, and 15mm DeLite eyepieces here.
- 1.25" barrel format; 62° apparent field of view
- 5mm focal length with generous 20mm eye relief
- Sliding, locking eyeguard, and Dioptrx-ready
- Parfocal within series and with many other Tele Vue eyepieces
Just as Tele Vue's Delos eyepieces were developed based on their Ethos eyepiece design advancements, DeLite is the logical step toward a smaller, more economical and lightweight version of Delos. Named DeLite because that best describes the viewing experience, the name also recognizes TeleVue designer Paul Dellechiaie's work.
The DeLite eyepieces have a 1.25" barrel and provide a 62° apparent field of view. DeLite eyepieces retain the pure optical quality of Delos along with 20mm eye-relief, unique sliding, locking eyeguard, and are Dioptrx-ready. All DeLite models are parfocal with Tele Vue's 1.25" Plossl, Panoptic, Nagler, and Delos eyepieces.
The DeLite series is a delightful addition to Tele Vue's visionary line of eyepiece developments.
