SV102T Apo Triplet


The SV105T is an apo triplet optimized for imaging with its SFF3 field flattener.  For visual use we developed the SV102T and SVR102T Raptor. The 102T comes with the highest Strehl 4” optics we have ever offered, backed by an interferometric test report. We intended to keep the 105 in our current line up as an imaging scope until we determined that the 102T performs equally well for astro imaging with the 105’s dedicated SFF3 field flattener. So now we are developing two reducer flatteners specifically made for the 102T which expands its capability in imaging. So we have decided to at least temporarily discontinue the 105 as the 102T is a stunning super planetary visual refractor that is the 105’s equal when it comes to imaging. For orders placed now, delivery for both the carbon fiber and aluminum versions of this telescope should be in about 30 days.

SVR102T Sky and Telescope magazine review

SV102T Web Page









Standard Model: The SV102T-25SV is the standard version of this new telescope. The fully baffled, lightweight aluminum tube and dewshield cools down rapidly. The lens is mounted to an adjustable tip tilt flange to ensure perfect alignment. The focuser un-threads 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. With the excellent Sky and Telescope review that was just published, we expect these to go fast. So order now for faster delivery.

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

Buy this mount/tripod system with the  telescope above and save $100. This mount/tripod system will hold  Stellarvue telescopes up to 115 mm. This is an easy to use large version  of our M1 mount. 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  adjustable surveyor's tripod with Appleply accessory tray

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.
