An exceptionally-long 20mm eye relief allows users to back off the eyecup for a more comfortable viewing experience with a greatly reduced risk of interfering vibrations caused by accidental contact with the eyepiece lens. The eyepiece is outfitted with their proprietary locking eyeguard which lets you set the eye relief in the perfect position whether you wear glasses or not. This DeLite has a barrel diameter of 1.25" to fit into the most common size focusers and accessories, and is parfocal with all Tele Vue Group 'B' eyepieces, allowing you to change compatible eyepieces without having to refocus - saving time and limiting vibrations.

Tele Vue DeLite Reviews

sharp, comfortable, corrected to the edge!

This is my 4th DeLite eye piece. It produces 200X in my scope. I could see the craters on the moon surprisingly sharp and clear. I am truly impressed. I love the adjustable eyecup, and the 20mm eye relief. I think these Delite have to be the sharpest/most contrast/corrected eyepieces irrigardless of AFOV. I have tried E.S, X-Cell, Morpheus, and Meade. DeLites are awesome.

Truly the best there is.

Hello, I have tried ES 52's & 82's Celestron X-cell, Baader Morpheus and Meade MWA. I am so impressed with these delites - Eye comfort and viewing, level of correction-sharp to the edge and contrast are excellent. I own 4 Tele vue Delites: 18.2mm, 11mm, 7mm, 5mm. I returned the E.S, Sold the Morphues but keeps the meade MWA and Delites. You will not find better. Made in Japan.

T5mm great on my TV 60
