Product Description

The Tele Vue TV-76 accessory package comes with a Tele vue 18.2mm DeLite eyepiece, a 2" 99% reflective Everbrite diagonal that comes with a 1.25" eyepiece adapter, a mounting ring for the scope, and a balance plate to and balance the OTA on Tele Vue mounts or virtually any other photo tripod.

Tele Vue DeLite 18.2mm Eyepiece

Paul Dellechiaie of Tele Vue created the 100° field Ethos eyepieces in 2007, the 72° field Delos eyepieces in 2011, and now the 62° field TeleVue DeLite eyepieces - smaller, lighter, and less expensive versions of the Delos. The family line of premium eyepieces continues . . . from Ethos to Delos to DeLite to your scope.

The compact 18.2mm TeleVue DeLite eyepiece weighs only 7.6 ounces. It has a generous 20mm of eye relief, so eyeglass wearers can see the full field, even when wearing glasses. For those with astigmatism, this medium to low power 18.2mm Tele Vue DeLite can use the optional TeleVue Dioptix astigmatism correcting lens.

The unique locking eyeguard, with soft rubber roll-down eyecup, slides up and down the eyepiece barrel to let you choose the most comfortable viewing position for your eye. The DeLite is parfocal with 1.25" TeleVue Plossl, Panoptic, Nagler, and Delo eyepieces.

A reviewer in Sky & Telescope said, ". . . the DeLites offered superb views. Stars appeared as pinpoints across the entire field; there wasn't a hint of false color around even the brightest stars; and there was only a touch of pincushion distortion, meaning that round objects won't stretch into ovals as you sweep them across the field. Daytime views were contrasty and without a trace of color fringes even at the borders of high-contrast objects such as power lines seen against a bright sky.

"These are the features everyone looks for in a quality eyepiece, but the DeLites offered something more . . . The DeLites are very easy to look through. You never get the feeling that you are struggling to get your eye perfectly aligned with the eyepiece."

Tele Vue 2" Everbrite Diagonal

This 90° 2” 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 diagonal is designed for refractors with 2” focuser drawtubes, but will also work with Schmidt-Cassegrains by adding optional rear cell adapter #7785C. The Tele Vue diagonal now comes standard with the 2" to 1.25" satin eyepiece adapter.  This high hat step-down adapter allows the use of 1.25" eyepieces in 2" focuser drawtubes and 2” star diagonals. The 2" barrel of the adapter has an undercut groove that the star diagonal/focuser thumbscrew sits in when tightened down. The extra depth of this groove reduces the chance of the adapter falling out of the focuser should the thumbscrew loosen. To keep your eyepieces looking new, 1.25" eyepieces are held in the adapter by a non-marring soft brass clamp ring rather than an ordinary aluminum thumbscrew that contacts the barrel directly. The thumbscrew that tightens the clamp ring is tethered internally in the adapter so that the thumbscrew can’t be lost in the field. The body of the adapter is finished in gloss black.
