Apertura 60mm FPL-53 Doublet APO Refractor

The Apertura 60EDR refracting telescope is portable, easy to use, and offers optics made with Ohara FPL-53 glass for beautiful contrast, amazing color correction and pinpoint sharpness within its magnification range. Super versatile, the Apertura 60mm Doublet APO can be used as a travel telescope, a guide scope, a super finder or a spotting scope! You'll be happy with the compactness of the 60EDR! Weighing just 3.25 pounds, this attractive scope is just 9.5" long with the dew shield retracted fully, and even with a fully extended dew shield, it is just a tad over 12". Whether you want to use the 60 EDR for visual observations or astrophotography, this 60mm refractor will provide spectacular images of objects in our solar system, bright deep-sky objects, the Sun (with proper safe filtration), animals, landscapes, and more!

Dual-Speed Rack & Pinion Focuser

The 60mm Apertura APO Refractor sports a 2" rack & pinion focuser with 10:1 micro focusing capabilities. Use the large knob for making bigger changes to focus quickly, or use the small knob to tweak the focus in small increments until it is perfect! And guess what? Imagers will be happy about the built-in camera angle adjuster!

Mounting the Apertura 60EDR is easy! This scope comes with a fitted hinged ring that drops down to a sturdy foot with 1/4-20 threads. Simply attach the 60 to a photographic tripod for the ultimate in portability, or attach the foot to a dovetail that will fit your alt-azimuth or equatorial mount. Alternatively, you can always connect the Apertura 60 to a larger OTA via a dovetail and use it as a guide scope. Lastly, remove the hinged ring, get yourself a larger finder bracket (measure the largest diameter to make sure the scope fits inside) and voila, you have a to-die-for finderscope with the ability to accept multiple eyepieces, including an illuminated reticle model!
