Ca-K PST without case

The Coronado P.S.T. Ca-K is a truly remarkable telescope linking two of Coronado's most recent technological breakthroughs. By combining the optical design of the price friendly P.S.T. with the Calcium-K line filters of our SolarMax 70 Ca-K we are again making solar discovery a real and attainable aspect of Astronomy. The unique Ca-K filter isolates a layer of the Sun that is below and slightly cooler than the layer viewed with a Coronado Hydrogen Alpha filter. The transmission line is centered at 393.4 nanometers and is isolated using thermally stable interference filters. Given that this telescope has a much smaller aperture than its bigger brother, the SolarMax 70 Ca-K, you can anticipate a drop in resolution but not in contrast, safety, or quality. The magnificent super granulation cells that gather and strengthen in this layer of the Chromosphere may not be visible to all as most humans eyes, through the process of aging, are not particularly sensitive to this wavelength. The primary purpose of any Ca-K instrument is for imaging.

Takahashi Seisakusho of Tokyo, Japan has been producing fluorite apochromatic refracting telescopes since they introduced the 90mm f/10 FC-90 in 1979. This revolutionized amateur astronomy as the world's first fluorite apochromatic telescope in regular production. Since that time Takahashi has not only produced fluorite apochromats up to 250mm but also mountings and a variety of state-of-the-art telescopes such as the four-element FSQ-106, Hyperbolic Astrographs, Newtonian-Cassegrains and Dall-Kirkham Cassegrains. We can get anything from Takahashi, including mount tripod accessories. Just make a phone call, or email Vernon Telescope for a quote.

 

Image 13

This model from Takahashi is a truly portable design. The 90mm (3") f/5.6 fluorite doublet apochromatic optical system is of outstanding quality, with a focal length of 504mm. The optical tube assembly is only 13.8" long, weighing 7 pounds; small enough for an airline 'carry-on'. Not only is this instrument an excellent choice for astronomy, it can be used as a portable high-quality telescope for birding. The oversized focuser is supplied with adapters for 2" and 1.25" diagonals, and accepts the FS series photographic adapters.

Parallax Instruments, Inc. Models PI200 and PI250

The 8" PI200 and 10" PI250 instruments are first in our series of larger aperture instruments. Relatively light in weight and easy-to-handle, first class construction techniques, components of the highest quality, and the very best optics available combine to produce telescopes fully capable of remarkable performance. Constructed entirely of aluminum with stainless steel hardware, every attention to detail has been given to these fine instruments. Push-pull type primary and secondary mirror cells afford easy, yet positive locking collimation adjustments. The optical tube is fitted with lathe turned, knife edge annular baffles. The result is a tube so dark, the primary mirror appears to be floating in space. To our knowledge, no other manufacturer of Newtonians incorporates this painstaking technique to extract the ultimate in image contrast. The light-weight, high precision optics assure quick temperature equalization and will provide incredible detail on planetary subjects. The striking high gloss finish of the tubes combine with the "feel" of these telescopes will surely provide their owners with many years of satisfaction. Our Series 125 equatorial mount is designed to carry both models. See Specifications.

 

These telescopes are not "run-of-the-mill," mass-produced instruments.

BKP15075HEQ5 (SHORT TUBE)

This Sky-Watcher 150mm (6") f/5 telescope is a two-element, air-spaced, fully multi-coated objective, achromatic refractor, which can give exciting "rich field" astronomical views. It can provide excellent vistas of star fields, clusters, nebulae, galaxies, planets, the Moon and (with correct filtering or by projection) the Sun. It is also a fine terrestrial telescope when mounted on an alt-azimuth mount or a photographic tripod. Crisp images at a reasonable price make it an excellent beginner's "first telescope", or a great travelling telescope for a more advanced observer. Similar to the popular 80mm f/5 refractor, this larger aperture model has more light collecting power at the same focal ratio and accepts 2" diagonals for awesome wide field views, while only a small amount to chromatic aberration and weight. Weighing about 3kg. (6.5lbs.) the optical tube assembly is readily carried and with a compressed length of approximately 50cm (21.7") it is easily transported.

 

Being a refractor, it is quick and easy to set up and the low-maintenance, enclosed optics come fully collimated from the factory. The optical tube assembly comes with "tube-mounting rings". These hinge open to allow easy installation of the optical tube and the locks can be loosened during use to allow tube rotation and balancing. Mounting the telescope on an alt-azimuth or an equatorial mount is quick and simple with the appropriate mounting plate.

 

This telescope also performs well as a fixed aperture, 510mm lens for both terrestrial and astro photography. The "fast" f/5 focal ratio, combined with today's high speed films, is excellent for capturing lunar and solar eclipses as well as for nature photographs. A solid, equatorial mount and a method of guiding is required for longer exposure astrophotography. A T-mount thread on the eyepiece holder allows direct attachment of an appropriate T-adapter (readily available through camera shops for a specific SLR) and the optional 60mm (2.5") extension tube gives closer focussing for terrestrial photography.

CGEM Computerized Mount

The CGEM™ mount has a fresh, attractive, bold appearance and is capable of carrying Celestron’s higher-end SCT optical tubes (up to 11") securely and vibration-free, which is ideal for both imaging and visual observing. Capable of holding over 40 lbs of payload and slewing at 5° per second, you will be able to instantly point to any of the celestial objects in the database.

 

Ergonomic Design - CGEM was designed to be ergonomically friendly with large Altitude and Azimuth adjustment knobs for quick and easy polar alignment adjustment.  The internal RA and DEC motor wiring provides a clean look and an easy and trouble-free set up.

 

Innovation - The CGEM series has a new innovative Polar alignment procedure called All-Star™ (patent pending).  All-Star allows users to choose any bright star, while the software calculates and assists with polar alignment.  Another great feature of the CGEM sure to please astroimagers, is the Permanent Periodic Error Correction (PEC) which will allow users to train out the worm gears periodic errors, while the mount retains the PEC recordings.

 

Performance - For objects near the Meridian (imaginary line passing from North to South), the CGEM will track well past the Meridian for uninterrupted imaging through the most ideal part of the sky. The CGEM mount has a robust database with over 40,000 objects, 100 user defined programmable objects and enhanced information on over 200 objects.

 

Celestron's CGEM mount is the perfect fit between the Advanced Series and CGE series, offering the portability of the Advanced Series and the precision of the CGE.

SmartStar-PR Computerized German Equatorial Mount 

iOptron SmartStar™-PR Computerized German Equatorial Mount and Tripod system provides superior performance and stability. Ideally suited for astrophotography, the PR is built with precision worm gears and high-caliber bearings for smooth celestial tracking. Our heavy-duty two-inch stainless steel tripod means your telescope and images will not be disturbed by any bump or windy night. The PR also includes a latitude scale for easier alignment and an optional polar finder scope.

 

SmartStar™-PR is fully computerized with a database of 130,000 – the most of any GoTo system on the market. The GoToNova™ Controller is more intuitive than its peers with menu categories better organized. It also has the largest LCD screen on the market with 8 lines of content compared with others that only have 2 lines. Using the easy-to-use hand controller, you can easily set up your telescope and select where you want to go.

 

SmartStar™-PR is easy to balance on both axes by simply sliding the counterweights. This is very helpful when attaching a camera or other accessory. And the single contact support system allows the tube to move freely with your attached camera.

 

SmartStar™-PR is universally compatible with all tubes using a dovetail connection making it useful for the hobbyist with multiple tubes. It also includes a Polar Finder scope essential for accurately aligning your PR.
