Meade Bhatinov Focusing Mask - for 8-Inch Telescopes

This Bhatinov Focusing Mask is made to fit 8-inch aperture SCT and ACF telescopes.  It will fit a telescope diameter range between 215 mm and 260 mm. Compatible with all 8-inch telescope models.

Take the guesswork out of precise focusing:

Meade's new Bahtinov Focusing Masks are ideal for astro-imaging purposes. The Bahtinov Mask is placed over the front of the telescope and generates a distinctive diffraction pattern around stars.  This diffraction pattern is clear and symmetrical when in focus. The pattern is very easy to see when focusing and makes the Bahtinov Mask intuitive for astro-imagers of all levels.  Achieve perfect focus in mere seconds!  Another benefit is this focusing method is very effective in turbulent seeing conditions when finding precise focus would be otherwise difficult. Sizes available for 8, 10, and 12-inch SCT and ACF telescopes, as well as any telescope that fits the diameter fit range listed for each size.
