Apertura 72mm FPL-53 Doublet APO Refractor
Apertura's attractive refracting telescope has an aperture of 72mm, a focal length of 430mm, and a focal ratio of f/6. The Doublet APO design of this refracting telescope means that users are treated to APO color correction and crisp images!
Whether you want to use this telescope for visual observations or astrophotography, this 72mm refractor will provide clear images of many celestial objects, and it has many accessories to help you establish a complete telescope set up.
The lens edges are blackened to help eliminate internal reflections that would otherwise reduce contrast. There are also internal light baffles within the OTA and 14 micro baffles in the focuser drawtube. These baffles enhance contrast!
The 60mm Apertura APO Refractor has a rack & pinion focuser with 10:1 micro focusing knobs. The 2" focuser is great for holding focus while observing or imaging. This focus works particularly well with those looking to participate in wide-field imaging.
