About TeleVue Delite Eyepieces
The Delite line follows the common practice of naming eyepieces after optical professionals, recognizing TeleVue professional Paul Dellechiaie. The name also serves a double-meaning, indicating the “delightfult” viewing experience that users can expect. TeleVue Delite Eyepieces are essentially smaller, more lightweight and more economical versions of the Delos eyepiece line. The primary features include the Delite’s 20mm of eye relief, an apparent field of 62 degrees and an adjustable and lockable eye guard. On top of these comfort-focused viewing features, Delite eyepieces are renowned for excellent contrast, making them an ideal choice for both planetary and deep-space observation.
