    Default Televue DeLite opinions



    Hi all,
    Does anyone here have opinions on the DeLites in the short focal lengths?

    Just curious or unhappy with your Pentax XW?

    I tried an 11mm on a few different scopes. It was very sharp across the field. At the extreme edges it lost the sharpness just a tad. The eye relief was very good. Contrast was excellent. Was it as good as my 8mm Radian? No but close.

    So you feel Radians better? Good to know

    I don't own any of the DeLites, but I do own two Delos and they are fantastic! I don't think you can really go wrong with anything from TeleVue so long as you have the funds for it...

    The eye relief and sharpness above all my eyepieces makes me keep reaching for it again and again. It's perfect for people not use to telescopes and my elderly Father can use it with ease. Most nights it's all I use besides a Barlow. I do have some older Orthos I really favor for Planetary and my collection of them is growing. I use them often when alone and eye relief is not so important.

    I love my Pentax's but I wouldn't mind having a good 5mm and 10mm in the box.
