Celebrate the start of the International Year of Astronomy 2009, the 400th anniversary of Galileo's first use of an astronomical telescope, by showing friends and neighbors the best of our wonderful universe.
The Tele Vue philosophy (Ethos, if you will) has always been about inspiring “spacewalk” vistas by creating the finest “rich field” refractors and wide angle eyepieces. Introduction of the 6mm Ethos model will further rekindle the appreciation of astronomy and support all the worthy goals of IYA 2009. It’s been quite a challenge to develop new Ethos eyepieces to the same performance standards achieved by the 13mm and 8mm models, perhaps the most honored in history.
The increased power of the 6mm will open up new visual experiences that Galileo could hardly have imagined, from small refractors to the largest Dobsonians.
