The advantages of Fluriot to ED glass: less adsorption or rather more transmission

APO 160 FL Apochromat vs. APO 140 ED

The TEC APO 200 FL has number of features that in a given combination are rarely found in one scope:

  • Precision apochromatic objective with modern coating that makes lenses almost invisible
  • Retractable Dew Shield
  • Light weight tube assembly. Theobjective is housed in an aluminum cell, providing for excellent thermoregulation properties while remaining lightweight and strong.
  • The optical assembly sits in a lightweight aluminum tube that utilizes anti-reflective coating and sharp-edged baffles throughout the interior and forget about collimation – after the scope leaves TEC, no adjustment is required.
  • Each APO200FL F/8 comes equipped with a Starlight Instruments FTF#3545 Feather Touch Focuser that was designed in collaboration with TEC. This is Starlight Instruments’ largest rotating focuser with coarse and fine focusing 9:1 Planetary Reduction Assembly
  • The 2” locking metal collet is insensitive to temperature fluctuations and holds loads with high precision and concentricity
  • Able to accommodate a wide variety of eyepieces
  • Recommended to be paired with a high capacity load mount and a stationary observation station
