"Your eyepiece is half the telescope, use the best -- Tele Vue"
— Jack Marling, founder of Lumicon Co.

Every Tele Vue eyepiece is personally tested at f/4 by our quality control staff to ensure the sharpest full field possible. It is the nature of optics that being the best in fast scopes also always assures the best performance in "slow" scopes. While every Tele Vue eyepiece type will yield the critical center sharpness so necessary for planetary viewing and splitting double stars, observers get the added bonus of a sharp wide field and comfortable eye relief with the different design models. The finest performance requires the finest materials such as high index lanthanum and fluorite type glasses, in some cases costing up to 15x more than ordinary glass types. At Tele Vue we ask "how can we make it better", rather than "how can we make it cheaper." We think you'll agree that the views are worth it.

Every Tele Vue eyepiece is fully multi-coated, has blackened lens edges and anti-reflection threads for maximum contrast. Chrome plated barrels, which resist scratching and marring better than black anodized barrels, include safety undercuts and threads for filters. Upper barrels are black anodized aluminum with a rubber grip ring, engraved identification, and fold down rubber eyeguards. All Nagler type 4 and Delos models include an adjustable eyeguard for ideal eye positioning. Many of the 1¼" Plössl, Delos, Panoptic and Nagler models are parfocal for convenience.

All Tele Vue eyepiece designs are proprietary and are manufactured in factories in Japan and Taiwan that do not make competitive products. To assure outstanding manufacturing and flawless image quality, our in-house NY staff performs optical and cosmetic testing on every eyepiece made, using our patented 5" f/4 flat field "MPT" test refractor. We even ship Japanese made eyepieces to our Chester, NY facility for 100% quality control and then re-ship them back to our Tele Vue Japan distributor for sales in Japan. In fact, focal length control is so uniform that we have never seen a mismatch that would affect use in a binoviewer, when using any vintage version of a given eyepiece model with a newer one of the same model.

We are pleased to offer a Lifetime Limited Warranty on all eyepieces (see details on our website). You also have the security of knowing that every current Tele Vue eyepiece can be repaired, serviced, or cleaned at the factory. Tele Vue eyepieces are also great investments, returning high resale values, when you want to upgrade or modify your collection.
