Product Description

Paul Dellechiaie of TeleVue 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 11mm TeleVue DeLite eyepiece weighs only 7.1 ounces, making it ideal for binoviewing. 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 11mm TeleVue 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."

I am so impressed by this eyepiece. Lightweight so it doesn't affect balance. Sharp clear images across the entire field of view in my f/8 SCT with great contrast. My only regret is not have bought it sooner. I plan to add more DeLites to my set. (Posted on 9/8/2020)

This is a wonderful eyepiece. It gives excellent, sharp views and has ample eye relief which is extremely important to me. It is my favorite higher power eyepiece (C11 Edge). (Posted on 12/4/2018)

The contrast, sharpness, and clarity of this eyepiece is exceptional. If you're on the fence about an ortho for planetary observation but aren't keen on the idea of the narrow AFOV, then this eyepiece is a great alternative.

Bests my 12.5mm Fujiyama HD orthos, and matches my 11mm TV Plossl for sharpness, contrast, and clarity. But does so in a 62 degree AFOV.

The color rendition in these is 100% neutral. The Moon looks absolutely stunning through this eyepiece. (Posted on 11/22/2018)

I prefer lightweight eyepieces that don't unbalance my small scopes but give excellent performance in all of them. The DeLite 11mm is as excellent in my C8 and 8" f/5 Newt as it is in my SV66ED and SV80ED. The 20mm of eye relief makes it comfortable to use for long periods, which means it gets used for long periods! A real winner. (Posted on 10/27/2018)
