The new William Optics FLT 132 includes 3 important new features:

 

1) New Optical design. The latest William Optics Telescope FPL 53 triplet lens features a new and improved central element that provides superior contrast when compared to the original design

 

2) A new Steel lens cell that allows the William Optics Telescope to be used at very low temperatures without fear of the cell pinching the optics and also gives great robustness

 

3) The new improved 3.5" Feathertouch focuser. It has better load bearing capacity than the original focuser.

 

The William Optics FLT 132 Triplet APO Refractor Telescope - 3.5" Feathertouch Focuser is a premium instrument and one of the best value and most versatile high quality William Optics Telescope APO refractors available. Combine the FLT 132 with the FLT Flattener for full format astrophotography, 35mm CCD or DSLR imaging.
