Description

TS Imaging Star 65mm f/6.5 Quadruplet Astrograph (TSAPO65Q) – 65mm aperture / 420mm FL

4 element APO telescope with field correction for Astro-Photography – 2″ RP focuser – FPL53 glass

 

The TS Quadruplet Astrograph 65mm f/6.5 of the TS Imaging Star Line offers a highly corrected focal plane for astro photography and is therefore an excellent alternative to the Takahashi FS-60 or the Pentax 75 SDHF.

It is fine crafted and optimal for mobile deep-sky imaging featuring a minimum mechanical length of 340 mm (with retracted dew cap).

Image quality on- and off axis is perfect and the very low chromatic abberation allows a visual magnification range up to 150x.


TS APO 65 Quadruplet advantages:

— fully corrected triplet lens group for colour-free imaging
— integrated field flattener (4th lens) for a corrected fiels up to full-size sensors
— optimized flattener position inside the tube for best effect
— 2″ dual speed focuser for high loads – no slipping, no shifting
— 360° rotation possibilitiy for ideal framing
— CNC tube rings
— finder shoe (Vixen/Celestron/Sky-Watcher compatible)


2″ Rack and Pinion focuser:

Rack and Pinion Focuser

This focuser combines the advantages of a rack & pinion focuser with an improved bearing system.

A Crayford design has its optimal stiffness only when the drive shaft is pressed firmly against the rail – this causes bucky operation.

The fine machined cograil allows smooth focusing even under heavy loads up to 3 kg.

The focuser also features a 2″ and 1.25″ receptacle with brass compression rings. 2″ accessory is locked by two thumbscrews – this prevents tilting.

 

The 65mm Quadruplet’s optical system – four lenses in two groups:

Optic of the 65mm Quadruplet Astrograph
For this lens system FPL-53 glass is used for optimal colour correction. Stars are free of colour fringes and halos which may occur with camera-side corrector applications.

The fixed internal ED flattener causes an optimal image correction for sensor with a diagonal up to 44 mm. With a separate lens brought into the focuser, this can hardly be reached. This highly corrected system is additionally supported by a adequate baffling system

    This is an amazing scope: clear image, no CA and flat field. The focuser is excellent: super-smooth and can easily hold the weight of my 70D camera. I bought this scope as part of a portable setup that I could take on vacation with me. It fits in a small suitcase and can be easily boarded on a flight as hand luggage.

    I currently use it on top of the SW StarAdventurer and I am very happy with it, this is my first light http://www.astrobin.com/208391/
