The Explore Scientific N208CF Newtonian - Astrograph Edition offers large aperture and super-wide field at f3.9. Field tested and updated by astrophotographers, this 208mm f/3.9 Rich-Field Newtonian produces tight, round stars with the recommended HR Variable Coma Corrector. This telescope assembly with its Carbon Fiber tube has very low expansion characteristics to hold its focus position, is also very lightweight, and a lightweight telescope performs better on any mount that it is placed on.

The very fast f-ratio f/3.9 Parabolic Newtonian with Borosilicate Secondary and Low Expansion H-PZ33 Primary Mirror optics provides a focal length of 812mm. The already very bright visual images is further enhanced with 97% reflectivity EMD coatings.

Precise focusing is achieved with the Two Speed 2-inch Rack & Pinion Focuser with 50mm Extension Tube, and 1.25-inch Adapter.

Other features include a finder scope base to mount an optional correct image Explore Scientific 8x50 Illuminated Polar Right Angle Finder Scope or the correct image Explore Scientific 8x50 Straight Through Illuminated Viewfinder.

The Explore Scientific N208CF Newtonian is handled and supported by metal Cradle Rings with a contoured metal Handle/Grip that is slotted to allow a 1/4x20 attachment bolt for piggyback attachment of a DSLR.
