About this product

Model:  stellalyra_8_cc

Incredible value 8" f/12 StellaLyra Classical Cassegrain

Perfect for high magnification lunar and planetary observing and imaging

The long focal length classical cassegrain design is perfect for both visual observing and astrophotography on smaller targets such as planets, close-up Lunar, double stars, small nebulae and comets.

A fixed position primary mirror eliminates image shift that normally occurs when focusing some other telescope designs. It also features a 2" dual-speed rotatable Crayford focuser.

Three CNC-machined spacer rings are included that provide flex-free focus extension when required.

Interior knife edge baffles reduce stray light for maximum contrast.

Fitted with a Losmandy-style dovetail mounting plate on the base and a handy Vixen-style dovetail mounting plate on top for piggy-backing over accessories.

A fantastic planetary scope
Saturday, 7 August 2021  | 

Iíve owned this scope for a week or so now and have had a chance on a couple of nights to image Saturn and Jupiter. The scope itself is solidly built and easy to collimate using a Cheshire collimator. Weight wise the scope operates comfortably on my EQ6-r, balancing well with a camera attached. At F12, exposures are longer (and with a x2 Barlow, longer still) however I easily captured detailed images of both planets and their moons on my first outing.

I have added a Pegasus autofocuser and a Telrad viewfinder to help with finding planets as the FOV is narrow at 2400(ish) mm FL

Overall, I am extremely happy with this purchase and look forward to continued use on the moon once planetary season ends.

So far, very good.
Tuesday, 13 July 2021  | 

Early days for this 'scope but so far so good. No unpleasant surprises. All seems to be good quality and as described. I have taken a few lunar crater pictures and they have been better than I expected. Focuser works well with good adjustment. Losmandy rail provides better stability on my SkyWatcher AZ-EQ5 with adapter.
