SharpStar 13028HNT 130mm Super-Fast f/2.8 Hyperboloid Newtonian Reflector Telescope with Carbon Fibre Tube
The ultimate fastest and still portable astro photo instrument!
Sharpstar took the initiative in launching the very first 150mm hyperbolic Newtonian reflective telescope with an extremely-fast focal ratio of f/2.8 just a few years ago. We are referring to the very popular 15028HNT that has garnered a quite large following since its advent. Not indulging in this great achievement, Sharpstar keeps on with their creativity and dynamism, and now introducing the new 13028HNT to their customers, which has a same focal ratio but a slightly smaller aperture.
The 13028HNT, with a hyperbolic primary mirror, produces round and sharp stars within the full-frame format and supports a 44mm imaging circle. Compared with the more widely used focal ratio of f/4, the 13028HNT can attain the same image brightness with almost half of the exposure time. Additionally, due to its compact and concise design of the telescope tube, it will certainly create huge interest on the market. Users who need a compact, but extremely fast travel telescope would benefit immensely.
The primary mirror is made of a Pyrex-alike glass PZ33. The thermal expansion coefficient is smaller than that of ordinary glass. The dielectric multilayer coating makes the primary mirror obtain a highly reflective surface of up to 97%. The minor axis of the secondary mirror is 65mm, enabling sufficient illumination for full-frame imaging. It's worth mentioning that the coma corrector is a two-part refractive-lens set, one of which is an ED glass, aiming to simplify the optical system while enhancing the aberration correction level.
The telescope tube is totally made of high-end carbon fiber material to achieve a lightweight design whilst creating an artistically beautiful instrument. All the component parts are from CNC constructed metals. The pair of tube rings feature pierced design. Although it increased the production cost, but it will certainly offer an extraordinary customer experience because of its lightweight and detail-oriented design concept.
The focuser is a 2.5" rack-and-pinion device. It is equipped with coarse as well as fine adjustment hand knobs to further improve the focusing precision. The focuser is tapped with M63 thread which can be switched into a more general M48×0.75 thread with a proper adapter ring (included). Thus the users may have a wider range of options in connecting other astronomy accessories to the focuser. The back-focus is standard 55mm(starting from the base of the mounting thread on the adapter ring’s housing), which is user-friendly for newcomers.
A versatile handle and a standard Vixen-style dovetail plate are also included in the 13028HNT package, which may be of convenience for users to attach other potential accessories and to place the telescope on various equatorial mounts.
