The Epsilon 130 has a 5.9º field of view making it a superior choice for imaging comets as well as planets. Ultra fast design allows you to image without reducing with a focal ratio of just f/3.3. To ensure that the image is evenly illuminated the secondary mirror has been placed in a specially strengthened spider so it can be held offset without flexure. Anspecial focuser adds to the list of features on this 130mm astrograph. Each metal insert has been coated with a special non-cold flow material to allow for extremely precise focusing. To improve collimation, the collimation system for the TOA has been adopted for the Epsilon 130 . Rather than using push pull screws set inside of each other they have been modified to use separate push and pull screws. This allows the screws to sit flush avoiding the tube bumping the alignment bolts.
