Product description:

Top class refractors: Esprit series three lens element apochromats offer high-end quality telescopes to astrophotographers and discerning observers. The combination of an Ohara FPL-53 ED lens element with two other lens elements ensures that the objective lens delivers high contrast but no apparent chromatic aberration - even with very bright objects. Ohara is a German company from Hofheim in the Taunus range and is a world leader in the manufacture and development of optical glass. FPL series glasses were developed by Ohara specifically for applications in astronomy.

The advantages in a nutshell:

  • high-contrast optics with no colour fringing
  • high light gathering power, ideal for astrophotography (see field flattener accessory available)
  • multi-coated lenses and internal light baffles
  • rotatable focuser with 1.25" and 2" adapter and high carrying capacity
  • fine adjustment on focuser with 1:11 ratio for extremely accurate focusing

  1. In addition to the OTA and dew shield the following are included in delivery:

  • 2" star diagonal
  • 9x50 finder scope with angled eyepiece
  • prism rail

And, additionally, a very high quality carrying case with interior padding.

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