TS-Optics Ultra Short 1.25" Star Diagonal Mirror for Imaging Star APOs
Ultra Short 1.25" Star Diagonal Mirror for visual observation with Imaging Star APO Telescopes
Imaging Star APOs from Teleskop Service are optimised for photography. The distance from camera connector to focus is too small for using standard 1.25" or 2" star diagonals. However, the TSIS-ZS1 with its consequently short design makes observing possible. It only needs about 60 mm optical path. You can get into focus with all 1.25" eyepieces without any problem...
Adaptation to an Imaging Star APO:
- In the case of an Imaging Star APO (TSAPO102Q and TSAPO130Q), the star diagonal is attached to the clamping adapter by replacing the M48 camera adapter.
- In the case of a TSAPO71Q Imaging Star - this diagonal mirror attaches directly to the 65 mm thread of the draw tube
- If you want to use the star diagonal with the Imaging Star Apo TSAPO81Q, you need the conversion adapter TSIS-M48. Here, you have to remove the 65 mm thread adapter, too.
