Tele Vue Visual Imaging Paracorr Type-2

Developed in 2010, this model can make an f/3 mirror act like an f/12 without a Paracorr. Essentially diffraction-limited across the field, it makes the new breed of f/3-f/4 "ladder-less" Dobs possible, and superior in terms of convenience, field-of-view and optical perfection when using top quality mirrors. The Paracorr Type 2 allows separating the optical assembly from the Tunable Top and using it with Tele Vue imaging system components to permit use with SLR and CCD cameras. APS size formats 27 mm diameter are recommended to minimize field vignetting. Ideal for mirrors as fast as f/3.

Note: The Paracorr Type 2 optical assembly is also available in a special adapter housing made by Starlight Instruments for their Feather Touch focusers. This unit avoids the need for a tunable top to optimize eyepiece position. Some Dobsonian manufacturers may also offer the Feather Touch focuser with integrated Paracorr type 2, as standard. Starlight Instruments offers Paracorr Type 2 integrated with Feather Touch focuser or as an add-on, if you already have a Feather Touch focuser.
