The SkyVision MT is a high performance Newtonian Astrograph which is extremely light, strong, with some of the best quality Newtonian mirrors we at Altair Astro have ever tested.

The MT structure (Mobile Telescope) combines the best aircraft aluminium to carbon and stainless steel materials. Your choice of custom optics is available with apertures from 250 to 400 mm in diameter and focal ratios of between F3.6 and F3.3, for extremely fast exposure times and wide fields.

Fit and finish of SkyVision MT telescopes is exemplary. The aluminium parts are processed by hard anodizing and completeness of hardware is stainless steel. This gives a very high level of finish and unfailing strength.

SkyVision uses carbon composite truss tubes which are pultruded and cured under heat and pressure. This allows the a composite with a very high proportion of carbon to resin for extreme lightness and strength and an almost zero thermal expansion coefficient. The carbon fibres are aligned as closely as possible to the length of the tube resulting in maximum stiffness in the load bearing direction.

The MT Astrographs come standard with a Losmandy-format dovetail plate, and can receive any type of eyepiece. A second instrument or guide-scope can be mounted to various points on the optical tube via a network of mounting holes. Talk to us about your specific requirements.

A Starlight Instruments Feathertouch focuser is mounted on the secondary mirror cage, which is further reinforced with additional carbon fibre tubes, enabling the use of heavy cameras and filter wheels.

The mirrors are made in SkyVision's own optical workshop in France with individual care and attention, and full test reports are included. Optics are guaranteed to deliver the best possible images while maintaining a rigorous mechanical alignment over changing temperatures. Performance is warrantied by Altair Astro.

Collimation of a super-fast Newtonian is absolutely critical. The custom mirror cell provides good support without compression of the mirror, and easy to access thumbscrews provide for backlash-free collimation. Collimation is maintained by the rigid truss-tube chassis.
