    Stellarvue SV152T f/7.9 Apochromatic Triplet Refractor Telescope with 3.5" FT Rack and Pinion Focuser

    Overview: The Stellarvue SV152T 152 mm (6-Inch) Aperture f/7.9 Apochromatic Triplet Refractor Telescope comes with a 3.5-Inch Feather Touch Rack and Pinion Focuser. It uses FPL53 center and Lanthanum rear element. The tube and dew shield are aluminum in instrument white. Also included are 2-inch and 1.25-inch compression ring adapters, American made CNC rings, and Stellarvue's C152HD Hard Case.

    Delivery 6 to 12 months

    More Detail: This is Stellarvue's new Flagship 152 mm f/7.9 Apochromatic Triplet Refractor. The high Strehl FPL-53 Ohara triplet has a conventional front element, FPL-53 center element and Lanthanum rear element for extremely sharp and high contrast performance. The aluminum tube is power-coated in our Instrument White color and the dew shield has the Stellarvue logo engraved on it. 

    This is our highest resolution telescope which performs flawlessly as a visual or photographic instrument. There is a large photographic field flattener and a large reducer flattener available allowing for astrophotography at f/7.9 or f/5.6. With an APS-c or smaller chip, the telescope may be used without any flattener.

    The massive Feather Touch 3.5-inch Rack and Pinion Focuser has 4.5-inch of travel and holds even the largest/heaviest accessories without strain. The smooth 10-1 fine focus knob allows very  focusing and may be outfitted with temperature compensating motorization.

     

     

    American machined rings are strong and stable, made of 6061-T6 aluminum precision cnc machined to exact tolerance. Cast rings can break, our rings never do. 

    The telescope comes with our Losmandy-Style 13" D plate and a heavy-duty, American made Roadie-style case with wheels, a handle and solid 3/8" plywood walls (This is a durable and strongly padded hard case - it is not the typical cheap import case). 

    Each lens is tested here to meet our APO Triplet standard with straight lines, .95 or better Strehl ratio and an excellent Airy disk. Using the best glass, the most precise curve generating, grinding, polishing and continuous testing, this is as good as it gets.
