About the TeleVue TV85 APO Refractor Telescope - Evergreen...
The Televue TV-85 combination of the apochromatic doublet lens and the special dispersion glass come together in the genius of the TeleVue Telescope design to provide a stunning 4.4 degree rich-field which will dazzle the vision with delicate jewel-like stars.
The TeleVue Telescope apochromatic performance of the new Nagler designed, fully multi-coated 2-element objective and 2" Everbrite diagonal produce natural stellar and planetary color rendition even at the highest useful powers. All air-to-glass surfaces in the Televue TV-85 are multicoated to provide high transmission and virtually eliminate internal reflections. The TeleVue Telescope tube''s textured, flat-black inner surface also suppresses reflections and helps deliver high-contrast images. The diagonal itself is know for its legendary full 99% reflectivity properties and permitting the use of long focal length 2" TeleVue Telescope Eyepieces. Whether your pushing beyond the theoretical magnification limits of 150x or taking your breath away with incredible low power, picture window views of the heavens, the Tele VueTV-85 is there to deliver.
But, the Televue TV-85 isn''t only a night owl. You''ll love this TeleVue Telescope for bird watching and nature studies, too. The included 20mm TeleVue Plossl Telescope Eyepiece provides outstanding scenic views - from the nesting eagles to the sailing ships. The small size and light weight of the TV85 permit the use of lighter-duty tripods and TeleVue Mounts for easy field carrying and transportation, making it an ideal companion for nature hikes, vacation trips and travel. The padded shoulder bag provides protection and room for the scope and six TeleVue Telescope Eyepieces, and this true rich field TeleVue Telescope can even be considered "carry on" luggage.
As incredible as the Televue TV-85 performs, it the lasting qualities that count when it comes to making a serious TeleVue Telescope investment. Not only is the TV85 a work of optical art - but mechanical as well. The 2" rack and pinion focuser was designed with a brass, non-marring clamp ring instead of a single set screw. Not only will this hold your TeleVue Accessories more securely in place, but it won''t mar the barrel of your prized optics - and neither will the 1.25" adapter. The focuser glides smoothly and cleanly, with just enough tension to keep from making corrections too quickly - yet loose enough to keep from feeling "stiff" in cold weather. By including simple standard TeleVue Telescope equipment such as a clamshell tube holder, you can easily mount it to an optional photo tripod or enjoy the optional lightweight and transportable TeleVue Telepod Mount with your system.
Photographers will love the Televue TV-85. For those who are looking for an outstanding tele-photo lens, optional Televue adapters will quickly turn the TV85 into a 600mm (12x) f/7 performer worthy of your best nature and sky shots. It you demand high quality optics? This is the TeleVue Telescope for you. Combine with a TeleVue Mount for excellence in astrophotography.
Don''t forget, we carry plenty of TeleVue Accessories, too! Look for TeleVue Telescope Eyepieces and TeleVue Telescope Filters for visual observers - as well as TeleVue Finderscopes and TeleVue Dioptrx!
