Product Details

  • Introducing the FMA135 astrograph which has inherited the consistent quality, compactness, and versatility from the Askar FMA family.

    As its name indicates, FMA135 was born with an objective lens plus a flattener. The objective lens features an APO triplet structure with an aperture of 30mm and a focal length of 135mm, one of which is ED glass.

    The flattener contains three elements which are designed for wide field astrophotography of the night sky and to control the performance at the edge of the photo. The exquisite optical design is the major contribution for its matchless ability in both visual observation and astrophotography as well as chromatic aberration control. Further, the FMA135 can also work as an excellent finder or guide scope. Its lightweight profile make it possible to attach the FMA135 to various cameras with corresponding adapters. Once attached, the FMA135 turns into a 135mm manual lens, which will absolutely bring you an magnificent experience in ground object imaging.

    There is 1.25" female thread at the front of the astrograph suitable for all purchasable 1.25" filters and standard M42×0.75 male thread at the back which accommodates most stock DSLR or astronomy cameras (an extra adapter is needed). Our standard configuration includes a tube ring for the installation of Vixen finder base, a 1.25" visual back for the attachment of an eyepiece or a guiding camera as well as a high-quality focuser (with thread) and a setting thread to avoid any deviation in astrophotography.

    As an ingenious optical design, our FMA135 will definitely offer you a super imaging experience.

    Impressive!

    Very good build quality! I use this scope with my ASI2600mc pro astro-camera and it produces very nice images, with round stars and no aberration. Focussing is easy. I was very disappointed when I tried imaging with my Canon 70-200mm L, but with the Askar everything is fine.
