Description

The AX103S is a top-of-the-range ED apochromat in the refractor series. It features a triplet ED object lens and a rear-mounted field-flattener lens. The f8.0 refractor contains a central ED lens in the objective and reduces chromatic aberration to an absolute minimum.

An optional focal reducer can reduce the aperture ratio to 1:5.6 in order to provide quicker results for astrophotographers. The built-in field flattener lens provides a sharp image across the entire field of view – an essential requirement in astrophotography. The 60 mm ring on the focuser allows you to attach a 2’’ eyepiece and a camera adapter.

The AX103S is specially designed for photography, but also offers stunning visual performance, especially for observing the moon and the planets. The AX 103S is corrected for full-frame photography and provides razor-sharp pictures right into the corners of the image field.

This telescope is guaranteed to provide a lifetime of outstanding performance!
