Stellarvue 125 mm Super ED Apo Refractor W/ FPL53 and Lanthanum
The Stellarvue Access 125 mm F/7.8 Super ED APO Refractor Telescope is your chance to own a high performance Super ED Apo at an affordable price! It uses a unique combination of materials to keep the cost down without sacrificing quality. The objective is an apochromatic doublet using a combination of FPL53 and Lanthanum which will keep your image contrast high, and since every lens is aligned before shipment you can be sure that you’ll be getting color free visual performance, but without the higher price. The included 2.5 inch focuser will be able to handle any combination of diagonal and eyepiece. Also, with the superior design of the rack and pinion focuser you can be assured of smooth yet stable drawtube travel.
NOTE: You can order this scope with or without a Stellarvue D1029ED Star Diagonal. Choose either option from the drop-down menu.
The Stellarvue Access 125 comes with an aluminum tube and dew shield that is finished in Instrument White. Fittings are black anodized aluminum. The dew shield retracts reducing the length of the telescope when being stored. Extending the dew-shield minimizes dewing of the objective at night and serves as a glare shade during the daytime. The inside of the main tube assembly is painted "ultra flat black" and is baffled to eliminate tube wall reflections.
Stellarvue's new smooth and stable dual speed, 2.5” focuser provides a full 2.875" of travel. This focuser is perfect for visual use and imaging. It's one of the finest dual speed focusers available today. The rear of the draw tube will accept Stellarvue's dedicated reducer/flattener (SFFR-125A) or will thread in with the optional rotator for an additional $59. The Stellarvue focuser on the SV125-Access is fully-rotating, heavy-duty rack and pinion unit designed to carry a higher capacity. It has an ultra-smooth (10:1 Ratio) fine focus control to attain perfect focus every time. An internal brake system allows the user to adjust capacity.
The Access 125 comes with two lightweight, hinged aluminum mounting rings. Each ring has three screws top and bottom. Threaded holes are 6mm thread. There is one center hole and two holes spaced 38mm apart. The included rail is for telescope mounts using the Vixen style rail, or use the optional TP6 for mounts that use the larger Losmandy rail. The Access 125 comes with a Vixen style rail with a center 1/4-20 hole and several holes and a slot to permit positioning rings for the best balance.
The Stellarvue Access 125 mm f/7.8 Super ED APO Refractor Telescope comes with a C130L heavy duty, thickly padded nylon case. The case holds the telescope and many optional items including a diagonal (optional purchase), eyepieces and a field flattener (optional purchase). NOTE: The telescope can be purchased with or without a 2" D1259ED Deluxe dielectric star diagonal (without the 1.25" adapter). You can choose either of these options from the drop-down menu.
An 125 mm refractor gathers 319 times the amount of light the naked eye does. Although Dawes limit states maximum power for telescopes under good conditions is about 300 power for a 125mm telescope, you can exceed this power on a steady night.
