Product description:

The optics in the AP 72/420 telescope use a doublet lens with one lens element made from a particularly low-refractive index ED glass. High quality Schott glass is used for the crown glass element. Each glass-air surface in the optics is provided with a metallic anti-reflection coating for achieving an outstanding maximum light transmission of 99.5%! This optical design of the apochromat ensures an absolute minimum of chromatic aberration and provides a very sharp image!

This affordable, short focal length refractor is ideal for the astrophotography of large star fields without the need for a heavy duty astronomical mount. It is also ideal for when traveling or for portable astrophotography in general. The sensitive focuser with a 1:11 reduction gearing is a great help when focusing.

This telescope is designed as an astrograph, that is, the focal position is designed for astrophotography.

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