Tele Vue TV60 APO Telescope OTA
Tele Vue TV60 APO Telescope OTAAre you looking for the perfect small refractor telescope? Then look no further than the Televue TV60 Doublet Refractor. Exquisitely crafted from its anodized all-aluminum exterior right down to its incredible Nagler optics the TeleVue TV60 will respond like no other 60mm aperture refractor you've ever dreamed of.
This high performance 2.4", 360mm f/6 APO doublet gives a maximum true field of 4.3, which makes it superior for both terrestrial and astronomical use. Standard features include a 2-stage 1.25" focuser which accepts in-line porro prism, 45 deg erectors, or 60 deg and 90 deg diagonals... and does it with a quick-focus drawtube and tunes it with a helical fine focus. The apochromatic design coupled with well above standard multi-coatings mean outstanding color correction, while precision internal machining combined with a sliding captive dew shield means no stray light bouncing around to disturb the perfect view.
At only 10" long (254mm) and weighing in at around 3 pounds (1.4 kg), the Televue TV 60 is a portable piece of perfection. The TV60 includes an adjustable dovetail balancing bar which fits all camera tripods and will instantly become a favorite of those who seek a great telephoto lens and imaging capability for digital cameras - great for birding and nature photography - as well as long distance spotting. But, don't stop there, because the TV60 likes to stay up late and party, too. The Televue TV60 Doublet Refractor will also give outstanding performance as a small astronomical telescope and combined with an optional Nagler Zoom eyepiece will give incredible lunar and planetary views.
