Product Description

The Tele Vue accessory package has all the gear you will need to get your observing underway.  You will receive a 25mm plossl eyepiece, 1.25" 99% reflective dielectric diagonal, A Quick Point red dot finderscope, and a carry bag to hold the TV-60 optical tube and all the accessories in this kit.

Tele Vue 25mm Plossl

This is a very good medium to low power (depending on the focal length of your telescope) eyepiece for lunar observing, viewing emission and reflection nebulas in their entirety, etc. It has a rubber grip ring for comfort in cold weather. It provides a big 5.55mm exit pupil with an f/4.5 Dobsonian reflector for rich field scanning of the Milky Way star clouds in Sagittarius from a dark sky site.  The barrel is a standard 1.25" diameter.

Tele Vue 1.25" Dielectric Diagonal

This 90° 1.25" mirror-type star diagonal has Everbrite dielectric mirror coatings for 99% reflectivity. In addition to higher reflectivity than a conventional aluminum or silver coated diagonal, the Everbrite coatings also provide higher contrast and resolution during critical planetary, lunar, and binary star observations.

The mirror housing and 1.25" barrels are precision-machined from a single block of solid aluminum, rather than being simply a pair of less-rigid tubes screwed into a flimsy plastic mirror housing or sheet metal stamping, as with lesser imported diagonals. A solid metal backplate over 4/10ths of an inch thick holds the mirror in perfect optical alignment. Both focuser and eyepiece barrels are antireflection threaded internally for higher contrast. The 1.25" barrel that fits into the focuser or visual back is also threaded to accept standard 1.25" filters.

The 1.25" eyepiece barrel uses a non-marring soft brass compression ring to hold eyepieces in place, rather than a thumbscrew that contacts the eyepiece barrel directly. A groove cut into the outside of the barrel acts as a safety stop to keep the diagonal from falling should the scope's visual back or eyepiece holder thumbscrew loosen slightly from cold or use.

This is an absolutely premium 1.25" diagonal that will give you all the visual performance your scope is capable of delivering. It's a worthy and visible upgrade for virtually any Schmidt-Cassegrain, Maksutov-Cassegrain, or refractor that uses a 1.25" star diagonal.

Tele Vue TV-60 Carry Bag

The Televue TV-60 carry case is perfect for the observer on the go. The dependable Cordura Nylon case is lined with foam to help keep your optics safe from everyday bumps and bruises. In keeping with the theme of the TV-60 (portable and functional) the carry case is up to the task with room for the TV-60, a diagonal, and up to three eyepieces. The TV-60 carry case proves to be a worthy upgrade over the standard supplied carry bag that provides little protection from anything other then dust.
