ES Reid Checked Telescope
Es Reid is highly regarded in the optical industry so to ensure our William Optics triplet refractors perform at their very best we send them to him for checking and, if necessary, tuning on his optical bench.
You can order your telescope with confidence knowing it will have well figured optics, negligible false colouand spherical aberration, and no astigmatism (the bane of any optical system!). Star shapes will be round, not triangular, oval or egg-shaped!
You know it makes sense :-)
New for 2021 - William Optics Fluorostar / FLT 91
An Apochromatic triplet refractor for visual astronomers and astrophotographers wanting very high performance from in a midsize telescope.
The three-element optical design features a 91mm aperture using FPL-53 glass that delivers high contrast colour-free images and an impressive 0.95+ Strehl Ratio.
Thoughtful design features like the integrated saddle handle, 360º field rotator, 2" Rotolock, large focuser knob and built-in Bahtinov mask are more than just nice touches. They genuinely help make this an excellent choice for astrophotographers.
To use with the Flat6A III 0.8x Reducer / Flattener set the adjustable distance at 5.4mm for 55mm back focus. For the Flat68 III set the adjustable distance at 10mm which leaves 65mm back focus.
