Utilizing the highest quality, UK designed, hand finished optics with an Interferometry test report his scope is now available.
Here it is, a few images of the New triplet f7 102 "Dark Matter".
These are one-off custom telescopes, built to order around the world famous Altair 102, 115 and 130mm Super APO lens cell.
This DARK MATTER telescope is not only a thing of beauty, it's a fully featured functional Super ED APO Triplet refractor, delivering razor sharp images with eyepiece or camera. An optical test report is included on all f7 models.
Each telescope is turned from top quaility billet aluminium on a large lathe, by London craftsman Mark Turner (who we feel has a bit of an eye for retro/SIFI punk) and then polished and wax sealed. Powder coated options are available.
Different finishes are available, in fact any finish you want, not to mention any colour.
Each refractor is unique and hand made.
