For astrophotography enthusiasts and those looking for a larger optical tube which produces outstanding sharp and bright images.
It is a package of a high precision and sturdy SXD2 mount with SXG-HAL130 aluminum tripod in combination with a high quality and lightweight SD115S refractor. The package comes as standard with two eyepieces that allow for starting comfortable observing.
The sturdy SXD2 mount features precision pulse motors, solid mechanices designed for long observing session and astrophotography. Bearings are used in the R.A and Dec axis and the rotating shafts of the worm gears to reduce the load on the motors and ensure smooth rotation. This enables the mount to carry loads of up to 15kg for astrophotography.
The SXD2 equatorial mount PFL comes with STAR BOOK TEN features intuitive 'Star-Chart Go-To' system with high definition color LCD display. The position of the telescope, the target and other useful information are displayed on the screen in detail. The night vision feature illuminates the whole screen in red, if applied, and will limit the brightness to the observer's eyes.
With high solidness and stability it is highly suitable for observing sessions in a remote place.
Vixen apochromatic refractors feature "Super extra-low Diopersion" SD optical glass in its objective lens. The SD glass produces clear and high contrast viewing, vertually free of false color. Brighter F7.7 images will satisfy the most demanding visual astronomer or astro-photographer. The SD115S comes with a flip mirror diagonal that allows you to switch the light pass quickly from straight through to angled viewing.
