Product information

This is a top quality and well thought-out telescope package to form the core of your wide field astro imaging system.

Astro imaging bundle includes:

  • Starwave ASCENT 60ED F6 Refractor. A super compact ED refractor with dual speed rack and pinion focuser, proper tube rings with spacers, and guide scope clamp. The objective contains top quality Japanese FCD100 ED glass, suitable for astrophotography or visual use, day or night-time. Very good colour correction for mono or colour CMOS cameras controlling hot blue stars especially well. Many companies sell this lens as "APO" due to the excellent colour aberration control, which is better than most DSLR lenses costing many times the price.
  • Altair MG32 mini guider. A compact guide scope with good quality optics to fit atop the 60ED with "set and forget" focuser. Set it up once and it will stay in focus forever!
  • Altair GPCAM Guide Camera with an extremely sensitive GPCAM AR0130 Mono sensor connects directly to the MG32 Mini Guider. 
  • SkyWatcher EQ5 Synscan PRO Goto Equatorial Mount - slightly larger capacity than the EQ3 series with slightly better wind resistance, but still compact and portable with autoguiding features.

We recommend considering something along these lines to suit, so do get in touch about system prices:

  • Dedicated 0.8x reducer / flattener for the 60ED Refractor with rear M48 thread and 55mm sensor to flange spacing, converting the system to a fast F4.8 focal ratio, allowing you to use a huge variety of cameras from DSLRs to the dedicated Altair Hypercam CMOS astro camera range.
  • Altair Hypercam CMOS camera range such as AA269C or AA533C series, fan or TEC cooled.
  • Altair Magnetic Filter holder with filters to suit.
