TS 76 mm f/5.5 Triplet ED Apo

This apochromatic refractor is the ideal telescope for traveling. The refractor is compact, it is even supported by good photo tripods or compact mounts like the EQ3. Due to the well corrected triplet objective, the refractor convinces with a clear and contrasty image, free of disturbing chromatic aberrations. The use at daytime is just as possible as the nightly use under the starry sky.

Astrophotography with the apo

We have developed a 0.82x image field corrector for the TSAPO76. It is screwed directly to the focuser. The corrector is linked in the recommended accessories.

Attaching the TS 76 mm apo to mounts and photo tripods

The CNC bracket has a GP and EQ5 style dovetail bar at the base. You can attach the telescope to the corresponding saddles of mounts and travel mounts like the Skywatcher Star Adventurer. Matching saddle plates can be found in the accessories section. In addition, the dovetail bar also has a 1/4" photo tripod thread. So, like a telephoto lens, the apo fits directly onto any photo tripod.

The carrying handle is a real multifunctional feature

The handle not only makes mounting on the photo tripod easier, but it is also the basis for further adaptations. The handle has a slotted hole and a 1/4" photo tripod thread. You can attach a ball head to it, for example, and mount a second camera in parallel. Next to the carrying handle is a finder shoe for finder scopes, mini guide scopes or red dot finders.

Observation with the TS APO76

The colour-pure triplet objective naturally also provides an excellent basis for observation. The high-contrast image ensures a flawless image at daytime, for example when observing birds. At night, the 76 mm aperture shows the crater landscape on the moon or exciting details on the planets of the solar system. Many thousands of deep-sky objects are also within the apo´s range. You can use 1.25" and 2" accessories, such as 2" star diagonal mirrors.
