Used Stellarvue SVA130 Triplet Refractor w/Reducer Flattener and 3" Feathertouch-UT-11838-SOLD-UT-11838: Stellarvue SVA130 APO Triplet Refractor TelescopE
The SV130T/ SVA130 telescopes are Stellarvue's latest Advanced Series 5.11" high performance visual/ photographic apochromatic refractors operating at f/7 or f/6.5 (air spaced version). These telescopes use an FPL-53 center element to provide the highest level of performance Stellarvue can achieve.
Fully multi-coated apochromatic triplet objective: This telescope delivers the highest level of contrast and color correction Stellarvue can produce in a five inch apo. Stellarvue uses a proprietary lens design with each lens element carefully hand figured to achieve a very high Strehl ratio. Lenses are edge blackened and have an extreme Broadband, full multi-coating that will transmit light well above and below the visual spectrum, making them well suited for visual use and CCD imaging.
Aluminum tube and dew shield: The aluminum tube and dew shield comes standard in Instrument White. This is a durable, American powder coat finish. The dew shield can either be extended or retracted. Extension reduces dewing at night can cut out the light from those blaring street lamps. The dew shield also serves as a lens shade during the day. Retraction will reduce the length of your telescope tube for convenient storage.
Internal tube treatment: The inside of the tube assembly is baffled and painted "ultra flat black" to cut down on excess reflections. The inside of the focuser has light blocking ridges. These ridges are painted ultra flat black, eliminating reflected glare.
3" Feather Touch focuser: The fully rotating, 3" Feather Touch focuser has 3.5" of travel and is large enough to work with Stellarvue's largest field flatteners. There is no need to ever go larger than this massive 3" focuser. This focuser features ultra-smooth coarse and fine focus knobs (10:1 Ratio), internal brake system, and ultra-low backlash system.
Aluminum hinged rings: The SV130T and SVA130 come with two American made, CNC machined, hinged, aluminum mounting rings. Each ring has five screws top and bottom. Threaded holes are 1/4-20. There is one center hole, two holes spaced 1.5" apart and two holes spaced 60 mm apart. Use the optional TP-10 rail for telescope mounts using the Vixen style rail or use the optional TP6 for mounts that use the larger Losmandy style rail.
Heavy-Duty Soft Case: This case is included with all SV & SVA130 refractors. It is built from the same strong materials as Stellarvue's other heavily padded travel cases. Outside dimensions are 39" X 10.5" X 10.5", while inside dimensions are 36" X 8" X 8". Features two internal dividers that are held in place by Velcro that can be conveniently taken out.
Wide Field Binoviewing: The SVA130 is capable of wide field binoviewing using an OCA or OCS relay lens. This is the way most people use binoviewers with refractors.
Light gathering and magnification power: The purpose of a telescope is to gather light and magnify the apparent size of the object being viewed. A 130 mm refractor gathers 345 times the amount of light of the naked eye. This will reveal faint objects in space. Magnification power (the increase in relative size of the object being viewed) is dependent upon the eyepiece being used. Different eyepieces provide different magnification powers. Since this telescope uses a highly accurate, hand figured objective lens and is triple tested in the USA, these telescopes are free of coma and astigmatism seen in many import telescopes. This provides sharper details when viewing at higher powers. Although Dawes limit states maximum power for telescopes under good conditions is about 307 power for a 130 mm telescope, you can exceed this power on a steady night. This is a true apo triplet capable of high power, when conditions permit.
