Stellarvue SV102AE-25SV f/11 "Planet Killer" Refractor

Many amateur astronomers used to dream, of owning a Unitron refractor as they were the best in their day. Now you can own a 4" refractor with higher contrast, a larger, fully rotating focuser and the ability to view with both eyes without needing any auxiliary equipment.

Many amateur astronomers used to dream, of owning a Unitron refractor as they were the best in their day. Now you can own a 4" refractor with higher contrast!  The high contrast, fully-multicoated Fraunhofer achromat will enable users to view Jupiter and Saturn at well over 200 X.

This is what we consider to be the "ultimate achromat." We start with a very accurate, fully multi-coated 102 mm f/11 Fraunhofer achromatic objective, mount it in a Stardust White, fully baffled tube, add dual rings, retracting dew shield, thread on cap and a 2" single-speed crayford focuser.

STANDARD MODEL WITH A 2" SINGLE SPEED CRAYFORD FOCUSER, 1.25" COMPRESSION RING ADAPTER.  ONLY A FEW LEFT!

The SV102-f11-2C is a Fraunhofer achromatic refractor with a Stardust White aluminum tube and retracting dewshield. It comes with a fully rotating 2” single speed Crayford focuser with 1.25” compression ring adapters and dual hinged rings.

F11 Stellarvue Achro
First light was an outreach for 5th graders. I used a 7mm UWAN for 157X and Jupiter looked terrific with a Baader Fringe Killer in the diagonal and mounted on a CG5-GT.  Even though it comes with a single speed focuser, focusing is a non-issue. If you're looking for a nice "classic" looking refractor that will give you some nice views, pony up for this one!
