WILLIAM OPTICS FLT 132 TRIPLET APOCHROMATIC REFRACTOR with ROTO-LOCK FOCUSER, RINGS AND CASE
The new William Optics FLT 132 DDG includes 3 important new features
1) New Optical design. The latest FPL 53 triplet lens features a new and improved central element that provides superior contrast when compared to the original design
2) A new Steel lens cell that allows the scope to be used at very low temperatures without fear of the cell pinching the optics and also gives great robustness
3) The new improved DDG digital focuser. It has better load bearing capacity than the original focuser.
The new FLT 132 DDG is a premium instrument and one of the best value and most versatile high quality APO refractors available.
Combine the FLT 132 with the FLT Flattener for full format 35mm CCD or DSLR imaging.
The FLT 132 is a true dual purpose scope.
It provides stunning sharp and contrasty images and delivers delightful planetary views as well as punching well above it's weight for deep sky observing.
In addition it performs superbly as an astrograph and is one of the few scopes able to handle full format 35mm CCD Cameras and DSLR's when used with the dedicated FLT Flattener.
It can also handle APS sized sensors and the popular Kodak KAF 8300 8.3MP sensors when used with the Flattener IV at F5.6
As usual with William Optics the fit and finish is exemplary.
Includes high quality CNC tube rings and hard case.
