Saxon 150DS Astrophotography Newtonian Telescope - OTA Only
The Saxon 150DS Astrophotography Newtonian Reflector Telescope - OTA is great beginner astrophotography telescope, ideal for prime-focus photography.
The saxon 150DS Astrophotography Newtonian Reflector Telescope features a 150mm (6") aperture with 750mm focal length (f/5) which is great for prime focus photography. If you're interested in planetary imaging, a 2" barlow lens is highly recommended to add extra magnification! For the keen astronomer, the dual-speed focuser ensures that you can achieve optimal focus by being able to adjust both a coarse and fine focus 10:1. Compared to standard rack & pinion and crayford focusers, this delivers sharper views and images as you can achieve a better focal point. If you want to go a step further, add in the saxon F5 Newtonian Coma Corrector to capture pin-point stars while reducing coma inherent to newtonian reflectors.
The saxon 150DS Astrophotography Newtonian Telescope features the following:
- 150mm aperture
