More info

This impressive 70mm, f/5 refractor has a focal length of 350mm, making it ideal for observing and advanced astrophotography. Features a fully multi-coated quadruplet objective lens made from the highest quality FPL 53 ED (extremely low dispersion) glass for outstanding contrast and sharpness as well as near zero detectable chromatic aberration or "colour fringing". The fully illuminated image circle is 42mm and will cover a 35mm full frame sensor. 
The Series 6000 Apochromatic Refractors are some of the best crafted refractors on the market. Each refractor is individually constructed and tested to ensure that they meet our highest standards, both optically and mechanically. 
These telescopes were built with the observer and imager in mind. With the three or four element optical design using the highest grade extra-low dispersion optical glass, false colour is virtually eliminated, yielding astonishing colour correction, contrast, and sharpness.

Dual-Speed Rack-and-Pinion Focuser
New to the Series 6000 APOs is the proprietary 2.5” dual-speed rack-and-pinion focuser. The focuser comes with a 10:1 fine focus knob for precise focusing. It includes millimeter markings on the drawtube to assist with focusing accuracy and is also rotatable which allows for easy framing of the photographed object. New for this focuser is the 2” self-center locking ring that allows diagonals or cameras to be well centered to the optical train every time the locking ring is engaged.
