NOTE: Orders for TEC Telescopes are subject to a lead time of up to 10-12 months if we have no stock. All orders placed require a 30% deposit with order.
The TEC 180 is probably the largest size of refractor that can be counted as portable. It will fit into most cars and can be lifted onto a mount by one person. A further develiopment of the 160, the 180 continues the use of Calcium Fluorite Crystal in an oil filled triplet design resulting in outstanding light transmission and colour correction
The telescope is supplied as standard with the excellent TEC / Starlight 3.5" focuser which can cope with camera loads up to 5.5kg. The focuser may also be motorised for more demanding imaging applications.
Due to the limited production of such scopes, a lead time following order should be expected. Please contact us to learn more.
