Sharpstar AL-80II F/6.25 triplet apochromat FPL-53

The Sharpstar AL-80II F/6.25 features an apochromatic objective lens with 80 mm diameter and 500 mm focal length (focal ratio F/6.25). Optical design consists is an air-spaced triplet apochromat with japanese Ohara S-FPL53 central lens delivering very high color correction. Each optical surface is fully multi-coated with a high light-transmission coating.

The Sharpstar AL-80II F/6.25 is a refractor designed mainly for astrophotography indeed: focal ratio of F/6.25 is somewhat fast, combining it with a 2" or 2.5" field flattener this refractor transforms into a flat field astrograph corrected also on big-sized sensors. You can lower down focal ratio using a reducer / flattener, such as the Riccardi 0.75x M63 Reducer, directly compatible with these instruments.

Even if the photographic vocation of this instruments is apparent, the Sharpstar AL-80II delivers stunning performance also on visual observations. Color correction and optical quality are excellent and generous backfocus allows the use of binocular turrets without any optical corrector in the light path.

Optical tube is made from aluminium light alloys CNC machine. It has a modular design, in fact OTA can be divided in various sections in order to optimize backfocus for your needs.

The Sharpstar AL-80II F/6.25 features an oversized 2.5" rack & pinion focuser with 1:10 micro-focuser. 2" and 1.25" adapter are included. Focuser shows also a M63 thread where you can screw 2.5" correctors or focal reducer with the same thread. Focuser allows for 360° full rotation.

Mechanical quality is top-notch: OTA is made with CNC machined light aluminium alloys, light and sturdy. Focuser is of very good quality. Even experienced customers will appreciate quality of this instruments. Nothing is left to chance!

Optical and mechanical check before delivery

Sharpstar inspects any instrument with their interpherometer in order to deliver the highest quality possible. Any optics sold by Skypoint is thouroughly tested with our optical bench. Testing includes also a deep mechanical check so that you will be sure to get a perfectly collimated instrument without mechanical defects that may occurs during import from China.

Skypoint, thanks to his pluriannual expertize, can assis you to complete your setup. We are also able to design and manufacture high-precision mechanical adapters for your CCD or CMOS camera. Contact us for info!
