DESCRIPTION

Stellarvue SV70T f/6 Triplet Refracting Telescope with Feather Touch focuser-DISCONTINUED-

The Stellarvue SV70T-25SV features a 70 mm f-6 (420 mm focal length) fully multi-coated, 3 element objective lens with an Ohara FPL-53 center element which is the sharpest and highest contrast 70 mm lens that Stellarvue has ever offered.Each lens focuses light precisely and the extreme broadband coatings on each surface enhances the image performance even further. Using it visually, the stars appear vivid and the background, velvet black. Since these coatings transmit more than 99% in the visual spectrum and far above and below it, reflections seen on CCD images are eliminated. The relatively fast speed and high strehl optics make the 70 apo our widest field imaging telescope and the visual performance is simply stunning.

The focuser is set up to accept our optional dedicated .8X photographic field flattener/reducer converting the telescope into a 336 mm f-4.8 astrograph.This telescope also comes with heavy duty dual rings and an airline carry-on sized travel case. This is not a mass produced scope using inferior glass and sloppy mechanics.

The SV70T furthermore comes with an aluminum tube and dew shield finished in fine Instrument White, with Black Anodized aluminum fittings. The dew shield is designed to be able to retract when being stored- allowing you to reduce it's length notably to make it easier to fit away- meanwhile, extending that same dew shield minimizes overnight dewing of the objective, and provides a glare-shade during the daytime.
