More info

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. 

In addition to the deluxe focuser the Series 6000 Apochromatic Refracting Telescopes now have an optional 0.8x Focal Reducer/Field Flattener for photographic purposes. For wide field images the 2” focal reducer/flattener will reduce the 80mm refractor from f/6 to an f/4.8 and the 3” model will reduce the f/7 115mm and 130mm refractors to f5.5. The new reducer will optically flatten the images yielding pin-point stars to the edge of your photographic frame. 

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.
