At around 6.4 inches, the 160 mm f/6.5 is considered the small end of the the ‘big refractor’ world. Such an instrument is capable of delivering a lifetime of enjoyment under the stars. Its cell contains hand-finished European lenses, which provide top quality planetary as well as unrivalled deep-sky views.

The oil-spaced lens design starts to show its advantages in these big sizes, helping the triplet lens to quickly reach ambient temperatures.

 

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.

  • 3.2″ or 3.5″ rack and pinion type focuser from Starlight Instruments
  • dew shield with rotate & lock feature
  • portable, medium to large size refractor
