About this product

Model:  askar_130phq
Part Number:  130PHQ

The Askar 130PHQ is the new and larger version of the highly successful 107PHQ telescope.

The Askar 130PHQ features a 4 element optical design with a medium fast F7.7 Focal Ratio which provides sharp, false colour and aberration free images.

The focal length of 1000mm and F7.7 is perfect for imaging small to medium sized DSO targets. With the optional 0.7x Focal Reducer the focal length is reduced to 700mm and focal ratio reduced to F5.4 thus giving the 130 PHQ superb versatility for DSO imaging of emission and reflection nebulae and galaxies.

The 130PHQ is also a superb tool for visual astronomy and provides beautiful sharp and contrasty views and can be used very successfully for lunar and planetary viewing and imaging.

The built in field flattener ensures a 60mm imaging circle, rendering the 130PHQ suitable for use with full format sensors. No additional field flattener is necessary, which ensures the 130PHQ is easy to use with a wide variety of cameras and imaging accessories. An optional focal reducer will be available shortly.

For ultra high resolution full format sensors found in cameras like the ZSO ASI-6200, the optional 0.7x Reducer provides even smaller spot sizes off axis and is highly recommended.

The air spaced triplet objective lens includes two ED elements for outstanding colour correction.

Featuring a high quality 3.4" Dual Speed Rack and Pinion focuser that is fully rotatable and capable of handling loads up to 8kg. A visual adaptor is also included permitting the use of 2" and 1.25" accessories. 

With the visual adapter removed, the focuser tube terminates with an M86x1 thread. The scope also includes four stackable adapters for direct attachment of a wide variety of cameras with standard metric threads.

Also included is a standard Finderscope adaptor permitting the use of many Finderscopes and Finder/Guidescopes, and a foam filled metal carry case.

The scope features a high standard fit and finish and also included are a set of tube rings, a Vixen style dovetail and a carry handle that includes mounting holes for additional accessories.

The 107PHQ gives excellent overall performance and is a fine choice for anyone wanting a versatile high quality astrograph, ideal for use with APS-C and Full Format sensors and a superb visual instrument.
