More about the product

Imaging faint objects require long exposure times. The exposure times can be reduced by using faster telescopes.

The tube length of the telescope is also shorter, meaning that the scope is easier to handle and transport, and it is also more stable on a given mount than a longer tube model.

The carbon tube telescope comes with a 2" LinerPower focuser which is finer to operate than most of the Crayfords, has bigger payload capacity. Also 1:10 microfocuser is a standard accessory.

The telescope is available in metal and carbon tube versions.

The carbon tube is lighter than the metal one. Carbon tubes are more resistant to temperature changes, there is barely need to refocus the image when the ambient temperature changes.

A comacorrector is a recommended accessory for astrophotography.

Also an excellent instrument for visual observing, especially for deep-sky oobjects,  but can be used with high magnifications as well.

Note that the mount is not included.

For visual use the minimum recommented mount is an EQ5 or HEQ5, while for astrophotography the minimum mount is a HEQ5 Pro or EQ6 Pro.

Pros

A nagyobb kiterjedésű mély-ég objektumok is jól beleférnek a látómezőbe. Nekem tetszik a képalkotása. Még épp hordozható méretű kitelepüléshez. Nagyon fényerős, elfogadható ideig kell fényképezni a mély-ég objektumokat is.

Cons

1. Hanyag összeépítés. A főtükör lötyögött a tartóban, két karom nem volt eléggé meghúzva. Pont annyira, hogy nehéz legyen észrevenni, de a cső átfordításkor elmozduljon egy kicsit. 2. A karmok belógása vagy a perem megmunkálása (vagy mindkettő) miatt a fényesebb csillagok körül zavaró, ronda god-ray alakult ki. A tükör peremét le kellett festenem. Így viszont már szép képet ad. 3. Tényleg nagyon érzékeny a kollimálásra.

Summary

Nagyon kedvelem, de hosszú út vezetett eddig. Rengeteget kellett dolgozni rajta, mire rendesen be tudtam állítani az optikai tengelyre mindent, és ehhez még a SW sportszerű nehezítést is adott a lötyögő tükörrel és a peremmel/karmokkal. Annak javaslom, aki szeret barkácsolni, nem fél a cső szétszedésétől. Akkor végül egy tényleg jó csövet szerezhet, de meg kell küzdeni érte. Nem szabad feladni. Ehhez viszont nagyon sokba kerül. Hozzá kell tennem, hogy Éder Iván mind a beszerzésnél, mind a barkácsolásnál sok segítséget adott.
