Medium-size refractor that targets both visual astronomers, interested in top quality planetary views, and imagers alike.
Both long focal ratio versions are aimed at planetary observers that want to enjoy best correction possible at the eyepiece. The Super Planetary series correction is tuned specially for planetary-visual peak wavelengths. Paired with our Field Corrector for Medium Format, the 140 mm F/6.5 is suitable for imagers using sensors bigger than full-frame.
