Vixen - SD103S SD Apochromatic refractor OTAadd this item to shopping cartThis product is highly recommended
Code: 26147
Supreme Vixen 103mm x 795mm f/7.7 Apochromatic telescope optical tube with accessories


The classic SD103S optical tube features a 2 group 3-element ED optical design with special Ohara FPL53 ED glasses which dramatically reduces secondary spectrum and produces incredibly good views of high contrast for both visual work and astrophotography. It is the ultimate fast refractor for serious observing and photography with plenty of aperture and the thermal benefits of sealed optics. This is a new generation of highly corrected Japanese ED optics not like those found in budget models.

With high-performance Super ED Glass made of leading-edge FPL53 glass, it produces extremely clear and sharp image by extraordinary elimination of colour aberrations.
The SD glass is designed to gather all g-ray (purple), C-ray (red), F-ray (blue), d-ray (yellow), and e- ray (green) around 0 value, reducing chromatic aberration over all colours.

Used in combination with new optional SD Reducer HD Kit or SD Flattener HD Kit, it allows 44mm image circle with full-format (D)SLR cameras.

Another feature optimising use in astro-photography is the newly baffles and positioning within the optical tube increasing incoming light near the edge of field of view greatly. This new design coupled with new (optional) SD Flattener HD, star images are perfectly corrected in the photographic field of view of even with a 35mm full-frame image sensor. A new (optional) reducer HD is designed to be used in combination with the new SD Flattener HD produces bright and wide field flat field images.
