The Draco 62mm ED telescope by Founder Optics is a f/4.8 quintuplet refractor that can be reduced to a very fast f/3.9 when the included 0.83X reducer is added to the optical chain.  This beautiful green & black telescope is waterproof and comes with a 2" rack & pinion dual speed 10:1 focuser.  It produces a full frame 44mm image circle for today's larger sensors.

The package also includes both an M48 and M54 adapter, a diagonal adapter (2" to 1.25"), and a 1.25" 90º dielectric diagonal.  You will find that this refractor is perfect for daytime & nighttime viewing as well as astrophotography!

The included tube ring has an ergonomic carry handle on top that is fitted with a Vixen dovetail, which allows you to add your choice of accessories.  On the bottom of the tube ring is a foot that attaches to a Vixen dovetail for connecting the scope to a mount or, alternatively, on top of a larger optical tube assembly.
