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.
Manufacturer part number EDE-15.0.

delite 15 mmPros: Cons: Comments:
1956 and a very favourable opposition of Mars ( 24.8") the war of the worlds flooding the media ,got me started in astronomy ; I was only
10 then and made my first telescope using the lenses of discarded binoculars and eyepieces from microscopes ;since then I made countless telescopes and use my share of eyepieces of designs like Huygens ,Ramsden, Kellner ,monocentric ,orthoscopic,plossl , manufacturers like Edmund scientific , Unitron come to mind ; Now 61 years later is fair to say I know a thing or two about optics and these eyepieces are up there with the best planetary eyepieces (Takahashi abbe orthoscopic and others ) but 20mm eyerelief and 62 degrees AFOV .;This time around I am making sure I am ready for the 2018 opposition of Mars .
Bring it on
