Specifically assembled to complement their TV-60 APO refractor optical tube assembly, the Tele Vue 90-Degree Accessory Package includes essential gear to help get you observing the wonders of the night sky. The package includes the Everbrite 90° diagonal, which features 99% reflective dielectric coatings, that places the user's head in a comfortable position for celestial viewing; a 25mm Plossl eyepiece that yields a low 14x power for terrestrial, lunar, and planetary viewing; a red-dot Qwik Point Finder to make alignment easy and star-hopping navigation fast; and a carrying case for the optical tube assembly (OTA) and all the accessories listed above.
Tele Vue Plossl 25mm Eyepiece (1.25")
Engineered to Al Nagler's uncompromising standards but at an entry-level price, the long-focal length Tele Vue Plossl 25mm Eyepiece produces a low magnification on most OTAs for both near and deep-sky observations.
It is made using diffraction-limiting high-index glass lenses in a 4-element/2-group configuration to keep light on-axis and reduce astigmatism and edge-aberrations across its generous 50° apparent field of view. Fully multi-coated optics, blackened lens elements, and anti-reflection threads complement the optical components to improve contrast and light transmission, while limiting its loss. Its long 17mm eye relief allows users the room to back off from the eyecup for a more comfortable viewing experience with a reduced risk of accidental contact with the eyepiece lens which can cause vibrations and interfere with views. Ideal for fast-focal ratio OTAs, the eyepiece features a standard 1.25" barrel to be compatible with the most popular size of focuser and accessories, with a convenient fold-down rubber eyecup. This model of the Plossl series 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 90-Degree Everbrite Mirror Diagonal (1.25")
Unlike others, Tele Vue prisms and mirror diagonals begin life as one solid chunk of metal-which is then continually refined to produce what you see before you now. This is a huge asset because there's nothing within the prism or diagonal which can unscrew and cause a heavy, expensive eyepiece to drop.
Tele Vue's Everbrite diagonals provide whiter and brighter images than any other diagonal. The exotic Everbrite coating is 99% reflective across the entire visual spectrum. Painstakingly applied, the Everbrite is offered in both 1.25" and 2.00" models. The bodies are machined from solid aluminum blocks, ensuring permanent alignment as well as not allowing heavy accessories to unscrew the body from the barrel.
90° Diagonals such as this render upright-but-laterally reversed images, which in turn gives a brighter image than if the device yielded an upright and laterally correct image. This is important when you're trying to muscle every last bit of magnification that you can out of your scope given the object's size, the scope's aperture and the seeing conditions.
