SOLD - Stellarvue SVR102T 102 mm f/7 Apo FPL-53 Triplet Carbon Fiber Refractor
Selling my Stellarview SVR102T APO Triplet carbon fiber refractor in excellent condition as I am upgrading to a larger refractor.

The SVR102T is an extremely high performance, light weight 4 f-7. (714 mm focal length) air spaced apo triplet refractor.
Certified 101.5 mm clear aperture optic is essentially perfect and comes with an interferometric test report showing it is .95 Strehl or higher. Using a 101.5 mm f-7 apochromatic triplet objective, with an Ohara FPL-53 center element. Extreme broadband multi-coatings are used on all six air-to-glass surfaces. Like all Stellarvue telescopes, this instrument was triple tested including a star test by Vic Maris.

It comes with the 2.5 Stellarvue dual speed, rack and pinion focuser for a full 3.2" of travel. The rear of the draw tube is threaded to accept a dedicated SFF7-25 photographic field flattener(for cameras with APS size sensor). The Stellarvue focuser is a heavy-duty rack and pinion unit designed to carry a higher capacity. It has an ultra-smooth (7:1 Ratio) fine focus control to attain perfect focus every time. An internal brake system allows the user to adjust capacity. The focuser is fully rotating with a wide groove for smooth and precise rotation.

It has a fully baffled, lightweight carbon fiber tube. The OTA is 9 lbs and rings weigh an additional .8 pounds each. The focuser unthreads for a tube length that is only 19.25 long. The main tube interior is painted ultra flat black inside and is properly baffled to eliminate any tube wall reflections. Reflections in the optical path are further reduced using edge blackened objective elements.

The SVR102T comes with CNC aluminum mounting rings with a vixen style dovetail plate. Each ring has five screws top and bottom. Threaded holes are 1/4-20. There is one center hole, two holes spaced 1.5" apart and two holes spaced 60 mm apart.

Included is a heavy duty, thickly padded Nylon hard case (C009S) with heavy duty zippers. These cases are substantially more durable than the thin walled Chinese hard cases.

A $3300. total value if bought new, asking $2500. Local pickup preferred or buyer pays shipping.
Price: $2,500
