Manufacturer's product description:

The 'apo for everyone' is back - Omegon triplet apochromat with sturdy transport case

Do you want more contrast, sharper images? Do you want to experience brilliant star clusters and see planets more brilliantly? The Omegon triplet apochromat offers excellent ED optics with three lens elements and precision Crayford mechanics. This telescope is a pearl for every amateur astronomer who appreciates a high quality image. And as a rule, you will not pay more for these premium triplet telescopes than for a normal doublet ED refractor.

The advantages in a nutshell:

  • OTA with 3 lens element ED optics
  • 2" Crayford focuser with 1:10 reduction ratio
  • tube ring clamps with handle
  • mounting rail for mounts with GP receivers
  • removable dew shield
  • a particular advantage - includes a reinforced aluminium transport case

High-quality premium ED glass: Triplet optics with air gap for high contrast

The Omegon triplet apochromat excels with its exceptionally good craftsmanship. Perfectly fitting lens mounts and quality premium ED glass contribute to the extraordinary quality of this telescope.

Colour fringing has been significantly reduced even further, when compared to ED doublet optics, and can barely be measured. The fully-coated optics deliver the brilliant image sharpness and wonderful contrast that one normally only associates with much more expensive apochromats.

Precision focusing: 2" Crayford focuser with 1:10 reduction ratio

Successful observing can only be achieved via precise focusing! For this reason, the Crayford focuser is designed to operate extremely smoothly. The 1:10 reduction ratio lets the point of focus be found with ease, even at high magnifications.

One advantage for astrophotographers is that once you have your subject in focus you can lock down the focuser at that position via a locking screw.

Keep everything is secure: The transport case for your optics

We supply you with a sturdy carrying and transport case for your apochromat. Why? Because it is very important to keep your telescope well protected when transporting it. A premium instrument such as this requires a gentle treatment and a 'home of its own' - to ensure that it will provide you with many years of observing pleasure.

This Apochromat will provide you with a whole new observing experience: whether for visual use or for astronomical photography.

It is not only important which telescope you buy, but also where you buy it.

We provide extra help:

  • We are a leading telescope dealer and know these instruments like the back of our hands.
  • We are always very happy to offer our assistance after your purchase, should you encounter any problems with your telescope’s setup or operation.
  • Our ‘Telescope Basics’ booklet - an 80-page beginner's guide for our telescopes – is provided free of charge with every telescope we sell.

Our expert comment:

You can find further information about the Triplet ED Apochromat in this blogpost.

The 102ED triplet apochomat is just as impressive as the 127ED Omegon triplet apo. But its lower weight makes it even more suitable for taking with you on the plane, or for on holiday. Optically, the Omegon 102ED triplet apo is of the same superior quality as its bigger brother. But the much shorter focal length makes it possible to photograph even larger fields of view, which for useful, for example, with extremely large nebulae such as NGC 7000 (the North America Nebula) or large galaxies such as M31 (the Andromeda galaxy).

Visually, it cannot quite keep up with its big brother, as here the smaller aperture and associated lower resolution become noticeable. But the 102 Omegon triplet apo remains a very attractive proposition and more than holds its own with the competition. The Omegon 102ED triplet apo provides an instrument that provides a lot of fun for both beginners and ambitious amateur astronomers and is very difficult to beat on price for the performance it provides.
