This small telescope is a true multi talent and can be attached effortlessly to any telescope. It is equipped with a well corrected ED lens made of S-FPL53 glas. At a focal length of only 242mm it is highly light-sensitive and ideally suited for widefield observation. Thanks to the adjustable holder featuring a standard finder scope base, the small ED fits in every customary finder shoe - simply remove the old finder scope and replace it with the 50ED - done. For individual adaptations we offer suitable finder shoes in our accessory section.
Range of application :
♦ High quality guide scope for astrophotography - Apertures up to 10" can be well guided, Autoguider presumed.
♦ Premium Finderscope with outstanding sharpness above average - You can already identify and distinguish various Deep-Sky objects and can also clearly differentiate between a star and nebula.
♦ Good lens for photography with Astro Cameras with small sensors. The objective´s sharpness produces needle-fine stars and exposure time can be held short due to the fast f-ratio of f/4,8. We recommend this telescope for cameras with sensors up to 15mm diameter.
♦ Convenient widefield refractor - simply insert a good 1,25" eyepiece and enjoy the ultimate widefield effect. With a 32mm Super Plössl eyepiece you achieve a gigantic FOV of 6,6° on the sky.
