Tele Vue Delite 5mm 62 degree 1.25" Eyepiece
Concept: In the same way that Tele Vue developed Delos eyepieces based on their previous Ethos eyepiece design advancements, DeLite is the logical step toward a smaller, more economical, and lightweight version of their Delos. The 62° apparent field DeLite retains the pure optical quality of Delos along with 20mm eye-relief, unique sliding, locking eye guard, and they are Dioptrx-ready.
DeLite Series Details:
All models have 1.25" barrels and are parfocal with Tele Vue's 1.25" Plössl, Panoptic, Nagler, and Delos eyepieces. Named DeLite because that best describes the viewing experience, the name also recognizes designer Paul Dellechiaie's work. The DeLite series is a delightful addition to Tele Vue's visionary line of eyepiece developments.
The Tele Vue DeLite 5.0mm 62 degree 1.25" Eyepiece will exhibit no scattered light or ghost images, with no glare or internal reflections, and has high transmission. The DeLite series are high-end eyepieces that are small and light, yet provide diffraction-limited performance, high contrast, and generous eye relief.
Tele Vue has once again created a line of all-around excellent eyepieces, good for both planetary and deep-sky work. Along with great imaging performance, they are relatively inexpensive.
