SharpStar 76EDPH telescope features:

  • 76MM f/5.5 three-element full separation (TRIPLET APO) optical design
  • Includes one ultra low dispersion ED lens
  • New 2.5" dual-speed rack and pinion focuser, 10:1 fine focus
  • 2" and 1.25" universal interfaces
  • Angle adjuster for 360 degree rotation
  • Universal dovetail bar
  • Comes with a finderscope mounting bracket (shoe)

The SharpStar 76EDPH refracting telescope is a three-element fully separated design that includes one exotic ED lens and multi-layer coating on all surfaces to reduce internal reflections.
The SharpStar 76EDPH provides a very good observation and imaging system thanks to its fast focal ratio. The unique triplet design incorporates a special ED lens, which helps to control chromatic aberration very well, makes the stars look sharp, and the image more vivid.
The combination of the high-performance optical design and CNC machined construction ensure the great quality of the SharpStar 76EDPH. The SharpStar 76EDPH comes with a high load dual-speed 2.5-inch rack and pinion focuser with a 1:10 aspect ratio compared to many refractors on the market that use a toothless focuser (i.e. Crayford). Rack and pinion focusers can bear a higher load due to their construction, so you don't have to worry about wobbling or loosing focus when using heavy-duty observation accessories or a heavy camera. In addition, the 360-degree rotator allows you to easily rotate the camera to achieve the best image framing. The 2-inch eyepiece holder barrel features a brass compression ring, so that you won't scratch your accesories.
The dedicated unitary tube rings with hollow design and streamlined handles is not only fashionable, but also beautiful and you can attach some accessories as well (i.e. guidescope). The 76EDPH package also contains a Vixen-compatible dovetail plate, it features a 1/4" photo thread in the center that allows the scope to be mounted on a tripod for daystar nature photography as well.
The SharpStar 76EDPH is a reasonably priced observational or imaging tool with fast-focus ratio that features exotic super ED glass, high quality heavy duty 2.5-inch rack and pinion focuser; when compared to other similar products on the market, its value is self-evident.
In addition, the 76EDPH can be equipped with our Sharpstar 2.5-inch field flattener for FULL FRAME astrophotography, which provides excellent image quality and avoids field edge star distortion.
