A development of the highly popular TEC140, the TEC160FL F/7 allows the observer to delve deeper into the beauty of space. The TEC APO160FL F/7 features an oil-spaced apochromatic-triplet objective with a Fluorite (CaF2) middle element, resulting in color correction that is optimized for visual use and imaging. This oil-spaced triplet design in combination with multi-layer coatings on all surfaces of the objective ensure maximumlight transmission.
The triplet objective is housed in an aluminum cell, providing excellent thermoregulation properties while remaining lightweight and strong. The optical assembly sits in a lightweight aluminum tube that features an anti-reflective coating and sharp-edged baffles throughout the interior. A collimation flange is provided for optimal adjustment of the lens. At Astrograph we check and adjust all telescopes before supply to customers, and in the case of the TEC160FL, will hand deliver it to you*. The outstanding optics, combined with careful collimation will deliver deep contrast and rich, natural colour.
The crisp all white assembly projects the elegant, handcrafted quality that TEC is known for. Each APO160FL F/7 comes equipped with a Starlight Instruments FTF-3545 3.5" Feather Touch Focuser that was designed in collaboration with TEC. This is Starlight Instruments’ largest rotating focuser with coarse and fine focusing 9:1 Planetary Reduction Assembly. The 2” locking metal collet is insensitive to temperature fluctuations and holds loads with high precision and concentricity.
The TEC160FL is also available for purchase as a Binocular Telescope. This requires the purchase of 2 APO160FL F/7. Please contact us for details and a quotation.
Able to accommodate a wide variety of eyepieces and mounts, the TEC APO160FL F/7 is a no compromise, no frills design that lets the wonders of nature speak for themselves.
