About this product
Part Number: DRX-0250
Astigmatism correcting lenses from Tele Vue.
Your telescope's focuser compensates for your near or far-sightedness; the Tele Vue DIOPTRX™ compensates for your astigmatism.
Attaches and lock onto the top of over 20 long eye-relief Tele Vue eyepieces to achieve the sharpest possible full-field view.
Rotatable tuning to the best orientation. Engraved letters on the barrel helps to monitor orientation.
Premium quality fully multi-coated glass in an anodized aluminium cell with rubber eyeguard.
Available in ¼ to 3½ diopter (¼ steps from ¼ to 2½ diopters, then ½ diopter steps to 3½-diopters).
To choose the correct Dioptrx lens simply choose the lens that corresponds with the Cylinder reading on your eye prescription, ignoring the +/-.
BENEFITS OF USING DIOPTRX OVER EYEGLASSES
- Sharp, high contrast views.
- Dioptrx can be rotated to precisely compensate for the astigmatic axis angle in real time (head angle and age can vary your eyesight astigmatic angle).
- Tele Vue Dioptrx likely has better optical coatings than eyeglasses, and certainly has better light transmission and anti-reflection reflection properties than uncoated eyeglasses.
- More likely to be cleaner than eyeglasses, which probably have scratches and smudges from constant use.

I have been struggling at wider views longer FL eyepieces in all my scopes,
I even started to think suddenly I had a faulty mirror on my 10" Dob, which I very much don't!
But no, it was faulty eyes, conversation with optician at my club confirmed I was seeing my own Astigmatism.
Simple solution was a Dioptrx, so duly bought one.
Well it has transformed things, fainter stars more obvious, very unequal doubles suddenly I can see.
This has literally transformed my observing and I will start to see more again.
So much more comfortable than eyeglasses at the eyepiece for me, which i kept not wearing, so saw Astigmatism.
10/10 item, Thanks TeleVue for such a great product and FLO for being that reliable supplier, as always they are.
