TS Triplet FPL-53 APO Telescope 80mm aperture / 500mm focal length with 2.5" dual speed photographic focuser
High-quality, colourfree APO with very good mechanical system - for the demanding amateur
Developed under supervision of TS, this high quality triplet apochromat with an FPL53 ED element lens has been designed to be an optimal travel and astrophoto scope. Even at highest magnifications, the image is kept free of false colour and has a high level of correction. The fast f/6.25 system is not only short and compact, it also gives the short exposure times astro photographers want.

The advantages of the TS Triplet Apo 80/480mm:

-- Air spaced Triplet APO Objective 80/500mm
-- FPL-53 by O`Hara for optimal colour correction
-- Retractable dewcap - allows a transport length of only 355mm
-- 2.5" high-precision focuser with 1:10 dual speed transmission with M63 connection
-- Universal saddle plate with 1/4" photo tripod thread
-- Overwhelming 5.5° field of view with adequate 2" eyepiece
-- In combination with the optional 2" TS flattener: an exceptional and fast photo APO
-- One of the best coatings we've ever seen - no disturbing reflections
-- Delivered in a robust aluminium travel case

TS 80mm Apo Auszug
The 2.5" PHOTO focuser with 1:10 transmission allows precise focusing and keeps even heavy accessories at the focal plane. The force of three radial locking screws is transmitted by a brass clamping ring. The focuser is rotatable by 360° in order to provide the optimal camera position.

One telescope - three focus positions:
