Sky-Watcher USA partnered with Starlight Xpress and assembled the Esprit 100 ED APO Refractor Telescope with Trius Camera Kit to give beginner astroimagers a complete and portable rig that delivers outstanding performance.
kit includes the fast f/5.5 triplet apochromatic refractor telescope
and the Starlight Xpress Trius monochrome imaging camera. The optical
tube's 100mm medium aperture is ideal for both solar system objects like
the Moon and planets, with the ability to resolve brighter deep-sky
objects like nebulae, clusters, and galaxies. The Trius imaging kit
comes complete with a Lodestar guide camera to ensure a compatible
motorized mount is accurately tracking, and a 7-position filter wheel
for creating custom images using color and specialty filters that are
easy to change between exposures.
This kit's compact size and
included OTA and camera cases make it easy to bring to remote locations,
and with its Vixen-style dovetail plate it only requires a small- to
medium-sized equatorial mount and tripod to begin capturing stunning
images of the Moon, planets, and bright deep-sky objects.
The Esprit ED APO 100mm Telescope from Sky-Watcher
is a 3-element refractor telescope designed for astrophotographers. The
optical system features apochromatic extra-low dispersion (ED) glass
and fully multicoated optics. A 2-element threaded field-flattener
corrects distortion that can occur at the edges of the field of view.
This combination makes astrophotographic images clear and sharp, with
high-contrast and true-color transmission, from one edge of the field of
view to the other. With a focal ratio of f/5.5, this fast telescope is
well-suited for astrophotography.
The 2" rack-and-pinion
Helinear Track focusing system allows you to bring celestial objects
into precise focus with virtually no shift. The focuser features tracks
above and below the focus tube. This gives the mechanism two points of
contact, keeping focuser level even with a camera mounted on it. The
Esprit comes with a 90° star diagonal with dielectric coatings. These
coatings provide better than 99% light reflection. The telescope also
comes with a 8x50 right-angle erector finderscope, a Cannon 48mm T-Ring
photo adapter, and a foam-lined aluminum case.
