Steallarvue SV 130Apo TripletThe SVR130R Apo Triplet uses Stellarvue's proprietary optical design with a Russian made lens that delivers the highest contrast and resolution available in a 130. The Stellarvue 130 telescope is a 5.11" high performance visual/photographic apochromatic refractor operating at F-7 visually and f-6.3 when imaging with the optional SFFR130 field flattener/focal reducer. Imagers may use the 1X SFF7-21 field flattener in place of the SFFR130 when using cameras that have an APS or smaller chip. Fully multicoated apochromatic triplet objective: This telescope delivers the highest contrast and color correction of any 130 telescope we have made. The lens is fabricated in Russia using an Ohara FPL-53 center element. So now you can get a reasonably priced 130 apo with the best glass and the finest, hand figured, Russian precision. Broadband full multi-coatings transmit light well above and below the visual spectrum, making them well suited for ccd imaging.Internal tube treatment: The inside of the tube assembly is baffled and painted "ultra flat black" to cut down on excess reflection. The inside of the focuser has light blocking ridges. These ridges are painted ultra flat black, eliminating reflected glare. The focuser is Stellarvue's new 3" dual speed, and offers 3.5" of travel and is large enough to work with Stellarvue's largest field flattener.
Aluminum hinged rings: The SV130 comes with two American made, cnc machined, hinged, aluminum mounting rings. Each ring has five screws top and bottom. Threaded holes are 1/4-20. There is one center hole, two holes spaced 1.5" apart and two holes spaced 60 mm apart. Use the optional TP-10 rail for telescope mounts using the Vixen style rail or use the optional TP6 for mounts that use the larger Losmandy style rail.C130-7 Case: A heavy duty, thickly padded storage and travel case is included. The case measures 10" X 10" X 39" and has a carrying handle and strap.What else do you need? In addition to the supplied accessories, you will need a star diagonal or erecting prism, eyepiece(s) and a mount, and a reflex or optical finder scopeLight gathering and magnification power: The purpose of a telescope is to gather light and magnify the apparent size of the object being viewed. A 130 mm refractor gathers 345 times the amount of light of the naked eye. This will reveal faint objects in space. Magnification power (the increase in relative size of the object being viewed) is dependant upon the eyepiece being used. Different eyepieces provide different magnification powers. Since this telescope uses a highly accurate, hand figured objective lens and is triple tested in the USA, these telescopes are free of coma and astigmatism seen in many import telescopes. This provides sharper details when viewing at higher powers. Although Dawes limit states maximum power for telescopes under good conditions is about 307 power for a 130 mm telescope, you can exceed this power on a steady night. This is a true apo triplet capable of high power, when conditions permit. Check the Recommended Accessories section to make the best choice for eyepieces.Two year warranty and Stellarvue Service: Stellarvue telescopes and accessories are covered by a two year warranty. But it does not stop there. Since we are a telescope maker, we can repair your telescope for a nominal fee years after it goes out of warranty, should you accidentally drop it on concrete or otherwise damage it. Buy a Stellarvue Telescope with confidence. Stellarvue's customer care is legendary.
