Sharpstar AL-140PH F/6.5 triplet apochromat FPL-53

The Sharpstar AL-140PH F/6.5 features an apochromatic objective lens with 140 mm diameter and 910 mm focal length (focal ratio F/6.5). Optical design consists is an air-spaced triplet apochromat with japanese Ohara S-FPL53 Dual ED optical design delivering very high color correction. Each optical surface is fully multi-coated with a high light-transmission coating.

The Sharpstar AL-140PH F/6.5 is a refractor designed mainly for astrophotography indeed: focal ratio of F/6.5 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 the dedicated 9.75x Sharpstar reducer / flattener that takes down the focal ratio to F/4.8.

Even if the the photographic vocation of this instruments is apparent, the Sharpstar AL-140PH F/6.5 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-140PH F/6.5 features an oversized 4" rack & pinion focuser with 1:10 micro-focuser. 2" and 1.25" adapter are included. There are also several threads available for direct accessories attachment: M78x1 female, M74x1 male and M68x1 female. Focuser allows for 360° rotation.

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