SVR102T Raptor
Apochromatic Triplet

 

The SVR102T is an extremely high performance, light weight 4” f-7. (714 mm focal length) air spaced apo triplet refractor. It comes standard with our new 2.5” Stellarvue dual speed, rack and pinion focuser with 2” and 1.25” adapters. Optional versions using either the 2.5” or 3” Feather Touch focuser are also available.  This is our latest lens design featuring a certified, high Strehl objective. Dedicated photographic field flatteners make this not only the best 4” visual scope but an outstanding imaging platform as well.

DESCRIPTION

THE TOP RATED 4” REFRACTOR - WITH A CARBON FIBER TUBE

 

 

SV102T25SV15025

C9S

Standard Model: The SVR102T-25 is the standard version of this new telescope. The fully baffled, lightweight carbon fiber tube produces a telescope that is very light. The ota is 9 lbs and rings weigh an additional .8 pounds each. The focuser unthreads resulting in a tube assembly that is only 20.25” long, well within airline carry-on size limits. Now you can easily take a world class apo refractor on the plane with you! The certified 101.5 mm clear aperture optic is essentially perfect and comes with our interferometric test report showing it is .95 Strehl or higher. This is as good as it gets which means you will see or image everything the atmosphere will allow! Like all Stellarvue telescopes, this instrument is triple tested including a star test by Vic Maris. We are currently finishing the second run of these hand crafted telescopes. With the excellent Sky and Telescope review that was just published, we expect these to go fast. The next run will take several months to complete. So order now for faster delivery.

ACCESSORIES

 

 

 M2MEC2TA150

UM2A - M2 mount, column and tripod with tray for telescope above

Buy this mount/tripod system with the telescope above and save $127! This mount/tripod system will hold  Stellarvue telescopes up to 115 mm. Large knobs allow for tension adjustment. Once the  tension is set, the user merely glides around the sky with a smooth and stable mount that literally "disappears" in use. This system mounts the telescope closer to the center of the tripod providing better stability  and less damping time than single arm fork mounts. This system includes: The smooth and stable M2 alt-azimuth mount head, the heavy duty MEC2 extension column, heavy duty #TA surveyor's tripod with adjustable Appleply accessory tray and the TP14 Vixen style rail. Separate purchase price is $626!

MVXEQ150

Celestron VX EQ Computerized EQ mount.

The new Advanced VX mount was specifically designed to provide optimum imaging performance for smaller telescopes. Now your smaller telescope (SV115 and smaller) can take advantage of all the features of our larger telescope mounts. You’ll be able to track through long exposures using permanently programmable periodic error correction. Image across the meridian without doing a meridian flip, so you can seamlessly image the best part of night sky. Advanced VX features a significantly larger base than our previous CG5 design, improving stability under heavy loads. Improved motors offer more torque and can handle slight load imbalances with ease.

Experienced imagers will love taking this portable mount to a dark sky site, with all the performance of their larger observatory mount. Or, if you’re new to imaging, this mount will help you get started with the hobby and keep up with your needs for years to come.
