Recommended Posts

Just a heads up! copied Televue's homepage's eyepiece specification:

Some wallets might be nervous now :grin:

Basically a new Radian then. Although if it is a narrower Ethos then yummy.

Strange way to 'announce' a new product?

I reckon they are working like all drug dealers. Give some little teasers then when everyone is hooked, full assault!

Interesting. The NEAF show is coming up very soon - that Tele Vue's "home" show so I'm sure thats where a higher profile launch will occur.

Intended for binoviewing perhaps ?

Delos Lite ?

Thinner, less FoV, easier to sort out inter pupillary distances ?

We should try to influence them to make a 15 mm version. There is a definite gap to fill at the moment for binoviewers.

I only typed just over an hour ago I had all the eyepieces I could ever want, now I could be speaking with forked tongue :eek: .

If the price is somewhere around £150 (or lower) and the optical charactistics Delos-like I can see these proving popular :smiley:

Wonder if we will see an "EthoLite" with an ~80 degree FoV, 17mm of eye relief etc, etc ?

These eyepieces have been removed from TV's website, anyone wants a guess why? :confused:

Yep, obviously the logistics of updating the website got a bit out of sync!!

That 18.2 mm with a 19.1mm field stop looks like it is just made for my Solar Spectrum filter (19mm free aperture, and I often dial up to 18mm with my WO zoom)

Sounds exactly like that, although I was thinking Delos, so a narrower version of the narrower Ethos! Or a Super Plossl.....

I note the 18mm is actually a fair bit heavier than the 19mm Panoptic which has a much wider aFOV than the new EPs, so they're no lightweights, although not exactly heavy in the grand scale of things.

18, 11, 9, 7, 5.5, 3.5mm lengths if 2x Barlowed which is a really handy spread and has got travel/holiday kit written all over it with a short frac. Doesn't make sense with a 2.5x Powermate as the multipled FLs clash. I wonder if a new Barlow is on the horizon too? It's one of the older pieces of kit in the line-up.

I'm guessing £230-250 each, give or take, depending on focal length.

That image shows TV as the source and it's only 7 hours old.

I see they're still resisting a decent undercut....

That said, all of my TV Plossls (with both new and old undercuts) work famously with all of my current accessories. Why did my Delos always end up on the squiff?

On another tack; I wonder if they have the Delos dual eyecup/twist lock body arrangement - The picture suggests it is possible, but isn't conclusive.

More grist to the mill:

Defo Delos eyeguard/cup and may I postulate they're all the same with the distance to the leading Smyth doublet being the difference?

Going to be very popular in binoviewer land. Oh dear! I just jumped on that wagon.....
