For 20 years, Meade's ETX series telescopes have provided novice astronomers quality, value and performance,
with each new model bringing enhancements and improvements. The all-new ETX Observer model continues that legacy.
Opticstar ARC102S/EQ1300 GT, ARC102/EQ1300 GT and ARC102S/EQ700.
A new range of achromatic refractors featuring superior mechanics and Low Dispersion (LD) Crown/Flint lenses.
The fully multi-coated optical coatings provide increased contrast and sharpness. Complete with manual or
computerized equatorial mounts and steel tripods.
Plus a free item with all EQ1300 GT models: Opticstar SL-131C video camera with all GOTO models; or 5A 12VDC Mains Power Supply Unit; or Heavy Duty Vibration Suppression Pads.
The Ascension premium apo-chromatic refractors were the first reasonably priced
triplet ED telescopes widely available in the UK that use a high quality Japanese ED
triplet (premium FCD1 ED). These first-class photo-visual instruments offer unequalled
value for money and come in three different sizes (80mm F6, 102mm F7 and 127mm F7.5).
