127/952mm Triplet APO - TS-edition with 3" focuser
Because of the color reduced optics you can observe the Moon and Planets very sharp and take cool pictures. Even Nebulaes and Galaxies are nice pictures worth, because the very good corrected lenses gives you nice star images. You can even use large format cameras, because of the new modified light baffles.
3" Crayford focuser with 1:11 reduction, a APM special edition
Usually this Apo will be sold with an 2" focuser which is good for visuell observing and imaging with smaller fields, Especially for Astrophotography you need good mechanically strength and field of view, so here we have a very good 3" focusing system. Nearly all big Apo´s will be sold with larger focusers, there is a good reason.
This big 3" Crayford has many advantages over a smaller one.
-better field of view - 76mm free opening
-use of large format CCD-chips
-exact movement without toggling
-up to 4kg without problems
A big advantage of this scope is the direct adaption of the 2,5" flattner for perfect star images within the used 60mm visible field. Also you can use the 2.5" off-axis guider. Only with this big focuser this Apo is a universal photo machine.
