Explore the Cosmos in Unprecedented Detail: Askar 120 APO Astrophotography Telescope

Unveil the secrets of the night sky with the Askar 120 APO Astrophotography Telescope, a marvel of precision engineering and cutting-edge optics designed for enthusiasts and professionals alike.

Key Features:

  1. Triplet APO Design: Featuring a state-of-the-art triplet air-spaced APO lens design, the Askar 120 APO ensures optimal color correction and superior image quality. With a single element of Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass, chromatic aberration is effectively minimized.
  2. Enhanced Aperture: Boasting a generous 120mm aperture, this telescope offers an impressive increase in light-gathering power, resolution, and contrast compared to its predecessors. Experience the universe with enhanced clarity, revealing intricate details of celestial objects.
  3. Compact and Lightweight: Weighing just 6.5kg (including tube rings), the Askar 120 APO is designed for convenience in outdoor shooting. Its compact form factor ensures easy portability without compromising on performance.
  4. Dew Shield and Mechanical Excellence: The retractable dew shield, along with enlarged locking screws, enhances usability while protecting the lens from external and internal light impact. The CNC-machined components and heightened tube rings contribute to the telescope's robust and durable build.
  5. Finder Bases and Multi-Functional Handle: Equipped with two finder bases, the telescope offers flexibility in positioning and mounting additional accessories. The extended handle, featuring a unique slot design, serves as a base for installing a finder scope, adding to the overall convenience.
  6. Versatile Mount Compatibility: The standard Vixen dovetail plate, extended to 290mm with added screw holes, ensures compatibility with most equatorial mounts. For further customization, a Losmandy dovetail plate is available for purchase.
  7. Optional Accessories: Tailor your astrophotography experience with optional accessories such as a 1x flattener and 0.8x reducer. Both accessories include built-in filter threads for direct filter mounting and M54/M48 adapters for convenient accessory attachment.
  8. High-Precision Focuser: The dual-speed rack and pinion large 3.3-inch rigid focuser ensures smooth and precise focusing. The anti-reflective internal design and matting paint eliminate stray light for optimal image quality.
  9. 360° Rotator for Precision Control: The rear of the focuser features a 360° high-precision big rotator, enabling convenient adjustment and saving of rotation angles. An enlarged rotator locking screw ensures secure positioning even under high loads.
  10. Elegant Design: Crafted with high-quality CNC machining, the Askar 120 APO boasts anodized and surface spray paint treatment. The ivory-white tube with orange accents exudes a stylish and elegant aesthetic.
