Named DeLite because that best describes the viewing experience, these high quality eyepieces provide a truly wide field of view without breaking the bank, and are an excellent choice for those looking for their first foray into the world of Tele Vue optics.
Tele Vue engineered their DeLite eyepiece series to be as sharp and clear as their venerable Delos line, but smaller and more lightweight. The eyepiece features fully multi-coated optics, a wide 62° field of view, and a long 20mm eye relief. It employs their proprietary locking eyeguard which lets you set the eye relief in the perfect position whether you wear glasses or not.
The Tele Vue DeLite 3mm is one of the newest additions in the DeLite series. Announced in November 2016 it is sure to become a favourite in any eyepiece collection.
Available in 18.2, 15, NEW 13mm, 11, 9, 7, 5mm 4mm and 3mm focal lengths, the DeLite series is a delightful addition to Tele Vue’s visionary line of eyepiece developments. Named DeLite because that best describes the viewing experience, the name also recognizes designer Paul Dellechiaie’s work.
The Tele Vue DeLite 3mm is the shortest focal length available in the series and would be a great choice for planetary and lunar observing.
A perfect eyepiece for faster focal lengths and the 20mm eye relief means you can wear your glasses if you have to. Threaded to take 1.25″ filters
