Two-lens apochromatic refractor with extra-low dispersion optics. Aperture: 72mm. Focal length: 432mm

Optical design
Aperture – the diameter of the light-collecting lens (refractors and catadioptric) or mirror (reflectors) that the telescope uses to collect light
Focal length – the distance from the primary lens or mirror to the point at which the light is focused

The Levenhuk Ra FT72 ED PhotoScope is an apochromatic refractor for astrophotography. This telescope can be used as a spotting scope as well as a camera objective lens. It can be used to observe space, but the main purpose of the telescope is photography. Due to the extra-low dispersion optics and eyepiece that efficiently collects light, this telescope renders a highly contrasting image with a minimum of chromatic distortion. The kit also includes an aluminum case that makes the transportation and storage of the telescope easier.

The Levenhuk Ra FT72 ED’s main feature is a 2" helical focuser. It is robust and allows for very accurate focusing and smooth movement without backlash. It provides crisper and sharper images than a rack and pinion focuser or even the more advanced Crayford focuser can provide. It is also compatible with heavy accessories.

The optical tube has a standard 1/4" thread, so that it is compatible with the most of modern mounts and tripods. To install a SLR camera, you need a special adapter, which is not included in the kit.
