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 TeleVue family line of premium eyepieces continues . . . from Ethos to Delos to DeLite to your scope.

The 1.25" 15mm TeleVue DeLite eyepiece weighs only 7.5 ounces. It has a generous 20mm of eye relief, so eyeglass wearers see the full field, even when wearing glasses. For those with astigmatism, the DeLite can use the optional TeleVue Dioptix astigmatism correcting lens. With Dobsonians and short focal length refractors, this 15mm low power DeLite is an absolute delight to use, revealing broad star cloud vistas, open clusters, and large scale nebula remnants in all their glory. 

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 15mm TeleVue DeLite is parfocal with 1.25" TeleVue Plössl, Panoptic, Nagler, and Delos 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 picked up a 15mm DeLite at the same time as an AT72EDII. It was my first teleVue, and now I have to admit all the hype I've heard over the years is true. They are real planet killers in my EdgeHD, and they outclass any of my other sub 20mm eyepieces. I do believe I'll be slowly collecting the rest of the DeLites. (Posted on 3/2/2020)

This 15mm is the second Delite I have ordered this summer, after getting a 7mm here. It is a "delight" to use this eyepiece. It's my low power eyepiece used in the dome with my 6" apo, giving 81x. Stars are pinpoint to the edge, with no significant aberrations noticed. I have also used it with a 2.5x TV Powermate to give about 203x, with excellent results on double stars. I do not readily notice the field size difference between this 15mm Delite and some 70 degree AFOV eyepieces I have. (Posted on 10/4/2019)
