TS-Optics Photoline 80mm f/6 Triplet FPL53 SuperApo
Managed by TS, this high quality triplet apochromat with an ED FPL53 element has been designed to be an optimal travel scope. Even at the highest magnifications, the image remains free of false colors and has a high degree of correction. The fast f/6 system isn't just short and compact; it also provides the short exposure times that astrophotographers desire. Optically and mechanically, it can be compared to the famous Lomo systems.
Includes 2" Starlight Feather Touch Focuser FTF2008BCR
Not only for the image, the exact focus and the precise lock are very important. With this telescope, we use the best focuser we can find on the market: The Starlight Feathertouch. No compromises. More about Starlight FTF2025BCR
The TS 80/480mm Super Apo FPL53 lens
This test shows the color aberration in relation to the wavelength of light. Even at magnifications greater than 200x, star images remain white. In astronomical images, even the brightest stars do not show blue fringes as is often seen with apos or FPL51 ED systems.
