We are pleased to introduce our new T400PN with his wheelbarrow handles. The structure is made of aluminum and carbon for better resistance to moisture and extreme conditions. The welded steel fork and all the mechanical parts of the instrument have undergone a specific treatment to avoid any risk of oxidation (anodizing for aluminum and epoxy paint for steel).

The SkyCommander comes standard with this scope. You can therefore search and point to all the deep sky objects with extreme ease and precision. In the future, the instrument can be equipped with an eq platfrom allowing access to planetary & dso imaging. The installation of an Altaz engine is possible by a simple return of the fork in the workshop for integration, such as the full range of instruments brand SkyVision.

WOW, that is a great ultra-compact design!

Love the big bearing bolts.

Looks to be compact AND lighter weight for transport in any vehicle; stiff when assembled. :waytogo:

Hello,
In fact you can see one of our UC design in the background of the image (UC 16").
Here is a new picture with some of our last products, during the Star Party late August in the Pic du Midi observatory (alt 2877 m).

From left to right you have 1 Skyvision UC 320mm (12.5")/ 1 SkyVision PN 320mm / 1 500mm (20") manufactured by SkyVision for "VS Astro" brand / 1 SkyVision SP 400mm (16").
The little blue one, first left, is not a SkyVision :)
