140mm f/7.5 StarFire EDF Triplet Apochromatic with 4" Focuser

140 mm Refraktor
Roland Christen at NEAF with the 140mm f/7.5 StarFire EDF and 900GTO German Equatorial Mount

Astro-Physics introduced the prototype of this triplet apochromatic refractor at the Northeast Astronomy Forum (NEAF) on April 28, 2007. The telescope with its clear aperture of 140mm is ideal for visual as well as for photographic observations.

Technical specifications of the 140mm EDF:

  • Clear aperture 140mm (5.5"), focal length 1050mm (41.5"), 3 oil-spaced lenses
  • Compact, lightweight tube assembly, fully baffled
  • Multi-coating technology will provide optimum light transmission greater than 97% (540mm)
  • The 140EDF will be offered with a 4" greaseless focusers. The focuser features the FeatherTouch 9:1 dual-speed reduction knobs. The focusers are positioned so that the Baader Planetarium Mark V Binocular Viewer will come to focus without the 1.25x compensator. This allows the user to see glorious wide-field views with both eyes.

The Astro-Physics Mach1GTO German Equatorial mount is recommended for purely visual observing. For use in astrophotography, we recommend the Astro Physics GTO-1100.

Included:

  • Tube assembly with 4" Focuser, incl. dew shield
  • 2,7", 2" and 1,25" adapter and large 4" extension (4" Focuser)
  • Wood case
