TS 76mm f/5.5 Triplet ED Apo
This apochromatic refractor is the ideal telescope for travel. The refractor is compact, even supported by good photographic tripods or compact mounts like the EQ3. Due to the well-corrected triplet objective, the refractor convinces with a clear and contrasty image, free from disturbing chromatic aberrations. Daytime use is just as possible as nighttime use under the starry sky.
Astrophotography with the apo
We have developed a 0.82x image field corrector for the TSAPO76. Screws directly to the focuser. The concealer is linked in the recommended accessories.
Attaching the TS 76mm apo to photographic mounts and tripods
The CNC mount has a GP and EQ5 style dovetail bar at the base. You can attach the telescope to the corresponding saddles of mounts and travel mounts like the Skywatcher Star Adventurer. Matching saddle plates can be found in the accessories section. In addition, the dovetail bar also has a 1/4" photo tripod thread. So, like a telephoto lens, the apo fits directly onto any photo tripod.
The carry handle is a real multifunctional feature
The handle not only makes it easy to mount on the photo tripod, but is also the basis for future adaptations. The handle has a slotted hole and a 1/4" photo tripod thread. You can attach a ball head to it, for example, and mount a second camera in parallel. Next to the carrying handle is a finder shoe for finder scopes, mini guide scopes or red dot finders.
Observation with the TS APO76
Naturally, the pure color triplet lens also provides an excellent base for observation. The high contrast image ensures a flawless image during the day, for example when watching birds. At night, the 76mm aperture reveals crater scenery on the moon or exciting details on the planets of the solar system. Many thousands of deep-sky objects are also within range of the apo. You can use 1.25" and 2" accessories, such as 2" star diagonal mirrors.
