TeleVue NP127is Telescope
The TeleVue NP127is telescope is the largest refractor in the range and sets even higher optical and mechanical quality standards for the serious observer. TeleVue's legendary optical quality provides sharp high-contrast images to the outer edges of even a 50-mm diagonal CCD detector.
The optical and mechanical designs have been modified to reduce atmospheric defocusing sensitivity (visually the difference is virtually indiscernible).
The new lens provides smaller spot sizes over a broader wavelength range than in the past, whilst a brand new stainless steel front cell facilitates far better thermal stability in extreme environments.
Advanced multi-coatings are applied to maximize contrast and transmission. Still the fastest in the industry, there is just no competitive comparison considering its f/5.2 speed and flat-field.
The instrument has also been mechanically updated from its longer captive dew shield to its new 10:1 focuser pinion assembly, made for Tele Vue by Starlight Instruments.
Together with completely new gloss black anodized metalwork treatment, the fine new shapes of the dew shield and rear cell convey a refined level of sophistication to this high performance APO refractor.
The Tele Vue-NP127is refines the original NP127 with the addition of a more robust, larger focuser now standard with 6:1 reduction. Tele Vue’s “isis” designation denotes instruments capable of accepting IIImaging SSystem photographic accessories. Tele Vue has designed this series of accessories in conjunction with each optical system so you are ensured of compatibility and maximum performance.
