TS 96mm f/6 ED-APO refractor for astrophotography and observation
The compact ED is still well supported by smaller mounts like the EQ3. With a transport length of just 46 cm thanks to the retractable dew cap, the ED also has room in flight luggage. Well-corrected ED optics allow for exciting lunar and planetary observations, wonderful deep-sky observations, and of course astrophotography, with the right corrector.
The 96mm f/6 ED lens:
The 2-element lens is made in Japan. Although the lens is "just" an ED optic, it convinces with good color correction. This allows the ED lens to show its strengths even in the high magnification range up to around 200x, while maintaining contrast.
The 2.5" focuser of the ED refractor:
The telescope's focuser is also convincing. The large ball bearings also hold heavy cameras and optical accessories very well. Thanks to micro reduction, you can focus very well and easily find the optimal focus for photography, but also for observation. In addition to the 2" and 1.25" connection, the focuser also offers an internal thread M63x1 for screw adaptations, for example to connect the photocorrector.
The TS 96mm f/6 ED for astrophotography:
With the optional TSRED94 corrector, which was designed for this telescope, high-level astrophotography is possible. The use of full frame sensors is not a problem. Thanks to the good correction of the lens and the corrector, the color fringes around the stars are minimal and will not bother you.
