Sky-Watcher USA partnered with Starlight Xpress and assembled the Esprit 120 ED APO Refractor Telescope with Trius Camera Kit to give astroimagers a complete and portable rig that delivers outstanding performance.
kit comes with a fast, large-aperture triplet apochromatic refractor
telescope and the Starlight Xpress Trius monochrome imaging camera. The
optical tube's 120mm aperture is ideal for both solar system objects
like the moon and planets with the ability to resolve 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 colored and specialty filters that are easy to
change between exposures.
This kit's included optical tube
assembly and camera cases make it easy to bring to remote locations, and
with its Vixen-style dovetail plate it only requires a medium size
equatorial mount and tripod to begin capturing stunning images of the
moon, planets, and bright deep-sky objects.
The Esprit ED APO 120mm 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/7, this medium speed
telescope is well-suited for astrophotography.
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
The Starlight Xpress Trius SX-42 Monochrome Camera Imaging Kit was assembled as part of a joint effort between Sky-Watcher USA
and Starlight Xpress in honor of Sky-Watcher's 20th Anniversary and
specifically designed to address all the normal confusion new imagers
have when setting up their first system. The camera system's 17mm
back-focus distance (±1mm) is matched for all Sky-Watcher correctors and
simply threads onto the corrector for fast and easy setup. This kit
includes Starlight Xpress' Trius 694 monochrome imaging camera, their
Lodestar X2 monochrome guide camera, plus a seven-position filter wheel
equipped with a built-in off-axis guider (OAG). With low power
consumption and a compact lightweight design, this imaging kit is the
ideal starter rig for anyone interested in astroimaging.
An OAG is
included, allowing you to use the filter wheel independent of the Trius
for observation purposes without losing the convenient auto-correcting
functionality of the Trius' guide scope.
