We are offering you these TeleVue DeLite eyepieces for a special price up until the 7th of December! You can purchase these eyepieces for just 239 euros. Saving you 65 euros on their normal price!
The DeLite Series eyepieces has been developed by TeleVue as a lighter weight, more compact and, above all, lower-cost alternative to the popular Delos eyepieces. DeLite eyepieces are in no way inferior in optical quality to the Delos series, only the field of view is slightly narrower – at 62°. The lower price allows more astronomical observers to enjoy the unique TeleVue eyepiece experience.
A more detailed description of the eyepieces in the series and the ordering options for them can be found under the link TeleVue DeLite eyepieces. Please note that the special offer is only valid until December 7th. Get yours now!

The planet Mars rises just before midnight and becomes the brightest object in the night sky. Looking through a telescope, Mars will reveal itself as it nears Earth with increasingly more detail.
The series of photos below were captured between January and the end of April 2018. They show the impressive growing diameter of Mars’ planetary disk.

The planet’s closest distance to Earth will take place at the end of July, during which time the disk will appear twice as large, as in the previous series of photos! A glance at our outer neighbor in the solar system, however, will be well worth it throughout all of the Summer months! A requirement in a successful Mars observation is a good eyepiece with a short focal length, which allows for a high magnification.
With the theme, Mars Madness, the American eyepiece specialist TeleVue is dropping its prices on its short focal length eyepieces by over 10% during the Mars Summer Event! – an ideal time to expand your own eyepiece collection! The price-drop applies to the following models:
The 4,5mm Eyepiece from TeleVue’s Delos Series
Last but not least, the Nagler Zoom Eyepiece 3 – 6 millimeter.
The sale is only valid until the 31st of July 2018! Get your hands on an eyepiece now!
Additionally, the sales price guarantee: should an eyepiece not be deliverable in the short term, you can have it delivered later it at the sales price – based on the date of order.
One more thing: all relevant info about this year’s Mars Opposition can be found on the backside of our Mars-T-Shirts:
