Description

This excellent telescope is the currently largest representative of a new line of apochromatic refractors by Explore Scientific.

The completely new designed optics contains the special glas FPL-53, and delivers stunning sharpness and contrast without any trace of color abberation. For a apochromatic refractor of this size the focal ratio is relatively fast – the f/7 optics is thus also very suitable for astrophotography.

The result of this combination of outstanding optics, top level mechanics and the relatively low weight is a extremely versatile telescope that wil not only give images of the moon and planets that are perfect. It will also exceed the expectations of even the most demanding amateur astronomers in the field of astrophotography.

 

Carbon Fibre Tube

This apochromat is well suitable to visual observing but was, in fact, developed especially for astrophotography. Use the advantages of a carbon fibre tube: it is particularly light and so even perfectly suitable for using on smaller mounts. The tube also offers a very high inherent stability and only minimal thermal expansion. These advantages are particularly useful for astrophotography, as the focus remains stable for the whole night. The dew shield is also carbon fibre and can be extended easily. In addition, the tube is lined with black felt.
