Refractor 200mm F/8
An instrument dedicated mostly for visual observations, designed for the hard-to-please astronomers with the highest standards.
This instrument meets the demands of those passionate about visual astronomy or planetary and deep-sky photography with impeccable chromatic correction and a large aperture to ensure sufficient light. Suitable for those who enjoy visual deep-sky, comet or planetary observing at it’s best.
The Carbon Fiber edition offers everything that the Aluminium version offers in a lighter package. Carbon Fiber tubes can be clear coated or can be delivered painted white for those who are using the OTA together with H-alpha filters or Herschel prisms for Solar work.
We recommend it for those seeking the last bit of portability in such a big size.
