The CFF Telescopes 140mm f/7.5 Oil-spaced Triplet Refractor is a remarkable instrument. It is a medium-size refractor that targets both visual astronomers and imagers alike. Its cell contains hand-finished European lenses, which provide top quality planetary as well as unrivalled deep-sky views. 

This longer 1050mm focal length versions is aimed at planetary observers that want to enjoy best correction possible at the eyepiece. This telescope has a colour correction which is tuned specially for planetary-visual peak wavelengths.

Note: this telescope is manufactured on request.

Main features:

  • 3.2″ or 3.5″ rack and pinion type focuser from Starlight Instruments
  • dew shield with rotate & lock feature
  • highly portable, medium size refractor
  • Oil-spaced design for best possible light transmission & highest contrast.

 

* Overall length and weight depend on focal ratio, back-focus value and focuser

A prism or mirror diagonal will be needed, together with good quality eyepieces, to be able to extract the most of your new telescope.
If the ordered telescope has 220mm back-focus, please consider a 50mm extension for single eyepiece visual use and imaging using a field corrector (no reduction/amplification factor).

Imaging accessories: (sold separately)

Field Corrector with Corrected Field = ~55 mm
Electronic focuser control (motor with integrated controller, from Optec)
Adapters and extensions to suit one’s observing and/or imaging needs.
