Skywatcher 50mm ED telescope with helical focuser and adjustable finder scope mount
US $ 275 only


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.


Features of the 50mm ED telescope:
♦ Advanced color correction achieved by 2-element ED lens made of S-FPL53 glas.
♦ Delicate and precise 1,25" helical focuser with 1,25" plug tube and T2 thread connection for cameras and Autoguiders
♦ Generous backfocus of 20mm and, after removing the 40mm extension, even 60mm. By doing this, even DSLR cameras can be used.
♦ High quality finder holder with 6 adjustment screws for perfect aligment. The screws tips are made of Nylon to prevent scratches.
♦ The adjustable holder fits any customary finder shoe by Vixen, Skywatcher, Celestron, TS-Optics and similar models.
♦ With only 800g this telescope is only marginally than a normal 8x50 finder scope and won´t unbalance your telescope.

♦ A 1,25" stop ring permits optimal Autoguider calibration when using a widefield eyepiece. This allows for optimal gauging of Autoguider and eyepiece whilst staying at perfect focus.
