Tele Vue TV 60 overview

  • 1Description

From the dainty Tele Vue-60 to the flagship Tele Vue-NP127, Tele Vue employs a companywide philosophy consistent with their entire line of great telescopes & accessories. They produce brilliant optics in several sizes, none too big to use "on location", so you can have the best views capable of whatever aperture you can tolerate in price and weight.

The apochromatic refractor is the telescope design which produces the most breathtaking contrast and resolution, and Tele Vue offers a 60mm class version for the ultimate in portability. You won't get the light gathering capacity per dollar of Newtonian reflectors nor the portability for aperture of Schmidt-Cassegrain. But what you will get are views to be envied by both, with the darkest of background sky and the sharpest, widest fields imaginable.

The Tele Vue-60 is just 10" long with a quick-focus drawtube and fine focus helicoid. No bigger than a coffee table book, it works with inline porro prisms, 60° diagonals and 90° diagonals. A bit unorthodox looking, it nonetheless gives more stunning terrestrial views than comparably-priced conventional "prismatic" spotting scopes. Perhaps a bit on the heavy side, but you will be awed by its performance.

    Tele Vue TV 60 reviews

    60 2.4"/60mm Refractor Telescope Optical Tube Assembly is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tele Vue is simply the best! I use the Tele Vue 60mm for bird photography, landscapes and astronomical. The optics are true APO quality showing outstanding resolution. Tele Vue is simply one of the best when it comes to craftsmanship, customer service and their 5-year warranty and 100% quality control. This 60mm is portable and works with the standard camera tripod. The only improvement I recommend is to replace the front plastic lens cap with a metal one like they have on their TV 85 which I also own.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope-Lots of fun High quality small scope. Keep and open mind and adjust your expectations to the small aperture. This scope is as portable and hassle free as you can get in a high quality package.
