Astro-Physics Stowaway 92 F/6.65 apochromatic refractor with 2.5" FeatherTouch focuser

Astro-Physics introduced the redesigned Stowaway at the Northeast Astro-Imaging Conference on April 18, 2018. Long-time astronomers will recall that Astro-Physics offered f5 and f7 Stowaway refractors from 1999-2002 that are cherished today for their portability and performance.

This triplet lens scope has the same extraordinary quality that you have come to expect from Astro-Physics with a few new exciting features:

  • Grab ‘n go visual travel companion. Follow eclipses around the globe or observe wildlife from afar!
  • Dramatic deep-sky imaging with its optional Prime Focus Field Flattener. For chips smaller than 12mm, no field flattener is required.
  • Silky, smooth 2.5” Starlight Instruments Feather Touch focuser with dual-speed mechanism. The dual-speed feature is particularly advantageous for critically focusing this fast focal ratio. A digital focusing system is available for imaging.
  • Rotating focuser enables you to frame your photos for optimal, artistic composition.
  • Compact, lightweight tube assembly travels easily in its Pelican Air case.
  • Fully retractable, felt-lined dew shield slides to its fully-extended position and then secures in place.
  • Latest multi-coating technology will provide optimum light transmission.

The Mach1GTO German Equatorial mount is recommended for visual observation or astro-imaging. The unique quick-and-easy daytime polar-alignment routine makes it ideal when setting up for star parties and public outreach. The intuitive GoTo Keypad serves as a full-featured mini-computer or use a planetarium program on your PC or Mac computer. You can even control the basic functions of the mount with your mobile smart device.

Optical Design

The air-spaced 3-element lens has broad band multi-coatings on all surfaces. The design was made using the latest version of the ATMOS lens design program. Optimization was chosen for the polychromatic Strehl ratio to be above 90% for the entire visual spectrum with a peak value of 99.8% at the visual peak. The result is unprecedented color correction. Visually the scope shows sharp contrasty images without color fringing with well-corrected high-power oculars.

The custom field flattener design achieves wide band color correction that extends into the violet regions with diffraction-limited performance designed for the most demanding modern astronomical cameras. This is especially important for the latest CMOS chips which have their highest sensitivities in the violet part of the spectrum and will show large blue halos with lesser optical designs. The 92 mm with dedicated field flattener produces sharp images at all wavelengths without blue halos or bloated stars.
