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 4mm TeleVue DeLite eyepiece weighs only 7.6 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 4mm 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."

Excellent eyepiece that snaps to focus and has great contrast. I use this with my 8" newtonian for better planetary views and its been excellent for that. I also really appreciate the 20mm eye relief. (Posted on 10/4/2019)

This gets most use as my "high power" EP in a 4.5" F/4 reflector. I use 7mm and 18.2mm DeLites in the same scope and notice no differences between the three. I occasionally get to use the 4mm at truly high powers in other scopes and it never lets me down. Eminently sharp and comfortable with glasses or without. (Posted on 10/26/2018)

This is my go-to eyepiece for planetary viewing in my refractor. I wear glasses and need more eye relief than most short fl eyepieces allow, and don't need a wider field for planets. The Delite is a top-tier eyepiece and perfect for this purpose. (Posted on 10/7/2018)
