|Description:||Although we originally designed the 155mm f7 StarFire EDF (6.1" aperture) featuring our gigantic focuser and field flattener with the avid astrophotographer in mind, we have come to appreciate the versatility of this instrument. At the urging of our customers, we now offer the same excellent 155mm f7 lens in a lighter weight tube assembly with our 2.7" focuser. |
We continue to be amazed at the compact size of this instrument. At last, a 6.1" refractor with an overall length of 40" (with dewcap retracted). This is less than half the length of an fl5 and approximately a foot shorter than an f9! In fact, it is about the same length as our 130mm f8, but with an inch more of aperture! You can transport it in a smaller car, store it in less space, invest in a smaller mount and shorter pier/tripod. This instrument is the fulfillment of the astronomer's dream for a truly portable 6.1" refractor.
