If you want to visually magnify higher or need a longer focal length for smaller celestial objects, you should take a look at the 130mm f / 9.2 triplet SuperED Apo from us.
With a focal length of 1200mm you can already achieve high magnifications with a moderate focal length of the eyepiece, which e.g. the viewing position on the eyepiece is good for you! Since the radii of a longer system are not so extreme, this optic is ready for use more quickly because it cools down more quickly. The chromatic correction achieved is excellent and enables absolutely convincing contrast values! Binocular observations e.g. on the moon, Jupiter or Saturn (my favorite) become a pleasure! If the air is calm, this optics resolves so finely that you almost experience a "cinema feeling"! With a 130mm aperture you already have almost 70% more light collecting area than a 100mm device. The resolution is already improved by approx. 30%. The illumination is completely sufficient to be able to "operate" larger CCD sensors. Our specially manufactured reducers and correctors turn these optics into a high-performance photo machine!
Despite the massive construction of the tube and despite the thick 3.5 "extension, the weight of the tube is still moderate at approx. 11.4kg. The focuser is stable enough to e.g. to safely carry heavy photo equipment.
In terms of equipment, everything important is already included: Slidable dew cap, end cover, viewfinder bracket, CNC pipe clamps and the necessary visual adapters / reducers. Whether mobile or in your own observatory, this device is sure to be an eye-catcher!
