Description

Founder Optics Draco 62 5-Element ED Refractor

The new Draco 62 from Founder Optics is a very high quality yet easily transportable powerhouse capable of both visual and photographic use. 

ED APO Lens

Five-element Air-space design, using ED APO lens. 

Dedicated 0.83x Reducer - f/3.9

The included reducer brings the focal ratio down to a fast f/3.9 for fast, bright and wide astrophotography.

Waterproof & Fogproof

Nitrogen injected for an IP67 rating. Hydrophobic coating on the air surface of the lens.

Unique Collimation Adjustment

Special collimation function. Built-in ball bearing and a spring structure, simplifying the 12 screws into just 2. Easy adjustment and accurate! 

Mechanical Stability 

The threaded connection reduces the risk of unwanted focuser movement caused by the focuser sagging during installation. 

Compatibility for Camera Adapter

Supports ZWO cameras, provided with M54 and M48 adapters, and can also be used with Founder Optics T2 ring mount for all camera types

Rack & Pinion focuser

One piece design - Rack & Pinion focuser and draw tube. This integrated structure reduces the mechanical clearance and assembly tolerance.

Light Weight

Only weighs 2.4kg by itself, and 3.2kg including the tube ring, handle, and dovetail plate.

Perfect Accessories for Mounting

Multi-functional handle with a built-in Synta-style saddle, combined with the tube ring and dovetail plate. Comes with tactical slide rails to provide multiple connection options
