The Gran Turismo refracting telescope is an apochromatic triplet with FPL-53 element for exceptional colour purity and high contrast! A versatile refracting telescope which leaves almost nothing to be desired.
- Visual observation:Equiped with an optional zenith mirror, you can observe the Moon and planets with extremely high contrast using this apochromat. The high-speed apochromat also enables prolonged observation of challenging Deep Sky objects: star clusters, galaxies and nebulae. Due to the pin-sharp depictions of stars, observing and analysing globular clusters is a particular delight.
- For astrophotography, we recommend William Optics Flat6AIII flattener and reducer. The lens also provides an even field with a steady focal position for full-frame cameras. Using the prism rail adapters integrated into the handles, you can fit a guiding scope on your Gran Turismo, which can serve as a finderscope or a guide sleeve.
- The lower 2.5" R&P focuser has a long focusing path, reduction and a temperature display. An adapter for a 1.25" eyepiece is also included.
The very robust Gran Turismo apochromat really is well-suited for travelling and for mobile astronomy and astrophotography. take the apochromat with you to beneath the dark skies and discover the best lenses from the Messier and NCG catalogues. The telescope is straightforward, stable and your new favourite telescope since the Firstlight!
A further special feature of the new William Optics apochromats is the specially calculated Bahtinov focus mask:
The new Optical acrylic sheet offers 92% of light transmission that gave you the highest and brightest diffraction Spikes for Focusing! Its about 3 times brighter than traditional metal type.
