Used Tele Vue NP127is f/5.2 Imaging System Refractor - UT-13006 -SOLD-

The NP127is Refracting Telescope is another sound, sophisticated refracting scope by TeleVue. The new lens prescription delivers smaller spot sizes over a broader wavelength range than previously before. As well, the new stainless steel front cell helps provide better thermal stability in extreme climates. The new NP127is has advanced multi-coatings that are applied to maximize transmission and contrast. Still being the fastest in the industry, there is just no competitive comparison considering its f/5.2 speed and flat-field.

NP127is has also been mechanically updated from its longer captive dew shield to its new 10:1 focuser pinion assembly which is made for Tele Vue by Starlight Instruments. Bringing a refined elegance to this high performance APO refractor, the NP127is features a new shape of the dew shield and the rear cell, while also having a new gloss black anodized metalwork treatment.

The non-vignetting focuser retains its 3" input and 2.4" output to reduce bulk and permits imaging across the largest commercially available CCD chips (52mm diagonal). No need for a heavier, more cumbersome 3" focuser. Every 2.4" focuser we make is tested to hold and drive a minimum of 6 lb of weight in vertical orientation.

The TeleVue NP127is is exceptional because of the standard to which it is built. The four element air-spaced Nagler-Petzval system begins with a precision machined 660mm focal length optical tube that is fully internally blackened to prevent any stray light inflections. Then it's combined with a 127mm aperture extra low dispersion glass doublet as the primary lens with a secondary field-flattening/aberration-correcting extra low dispersion glass doublet at the opposite end. All optical coatings on the NP127is receive index matched multi-coatings. This design offers up diffraction-limited apochromatic performance as well as correcting for field curvature, spherochromatism, secondary spectrum, coma, spherical aberration, and astigmatism.
