    Explore Scientific N208CF Newtonian Telescope Astrograph Edition

    The Explore Scientific N208CF Newtonian Telescope - Astrograph Edition offers a large aperture and super-wide field at f3.9. Field tested and updated by astrophotographers. This 208mm f/3.9 Newtonian produces tight, round stars with the recommended Harrie Rutten (HR) Variable Coma Corrector. This telescope assembly with its Carbon Fiber tube has low expansion characteristics to hold its focus position, is very lightweight, and a lightweight telescope performs better on any mount that it is mounted on.

    Metal Cradle Rings support the Explore Scientific N208CF Newtonian Telescope with a contoured metal Handle/Grip slotted to allow a 1/4x20 attachment bolt for piggyback attachment of a camera. The 45mm Wide, 203mm Long Dovetail Plate (Vixen-style) mounts to fit a vast range of mounts from Explore Scientific and other brands. This dovetail plate has adjustment bolts with locks to adjust for precision cone angle adjustments.
