Stellarvue Premier 152 mm f/8 Hand-Figured APO Triplet with Stellarvue 3.5" Focuser - SVX152T
Stellarvue SVX152 APO Triplet Refractor Telescope
with 3.5" FT Focuser and Case
Stellarvue's SVX152T is an APO refractor packed with handy accessories so you can enjoy your time under the skies. The 152mm aperture has a superior light-gathering ability. This scope uses a 3-element apochromatic design. What really makes the SVX152T stand out is the hand-crafted lenses. Each lens is designed by hand and machine at Stellarvue's headquarters. This means common optical issues are addressed in-house. Astigmatism, spherical issues, coma, and trefoil are all eliminated.
Stellarvue's flagship SVX152T features a high Strehl FPL-53 Ohara triplet front element, FPL-53 center element, and a Lanthanum rear element. This results in high contrast views and an extremely sharp image. The SVX152 is then rigorously tested at Stellarvue to meet their APO Triplet standard with straight lines, .96 or better Strehl ratio and an excellent Airy disk. Stellarvue has even included interferometric test reports so you can feel confident in your optical set's quality and level of perfection.
A reinforced aluminum tube assembly protects the optical elements along with a fully retractable dew shield. The exterior has been painted powder white. The interior of the main tube is painted ultra flat black to eliminate reflections, and baffling in the focuser further helps with stray light. The rest of the telescope is made of black anodized aluminum.
The Stellarvue SVX152 includes a Stellarvue 3.5" dual speed focuser.
Also included are a finderscope, illuminated reticle eyepiece, CNC machined aluminum rings, and a 13" losmandy-style dovetail plate. The SVX152 refractor comes in a padded hard case so you can safely store your scope and transport it with ease. The rings and hard case are both proudly made in the USA.
About the Optional 2" Quartz Diagonal Deal - See Drop-Down Above
Save $50 on the Stellarvue 2" Quartz Diagonal when you purchase it together with this telescope. If you add the diagonal to your order it will be packed safely away in the included telescope case along with your new refractor. The Stellarvue diagonal uses a thick, oversized mirror polished to 1/10th wave. The mirror has a protective, dielectric coating with 99% reflectivity. It has a compression ring eyepiece tube and the insert tube is beveled to better seat the diagonal in the focuser. A rubber grip on the 2" tube allows for easy handling in cold climates. This 2" diagonal is assembled, adjusted and double tested at Stellarvue for perfect alignment and performance. The five-point cushion system eliminates pinching in all climates and the precision CNC machined components assure perfect alignment that stays that way. Use the focuser's 1.25" adapter with the diagonal when you want to view through your 1.25" eyepieces.
