About this product

Model:  WOflt132_rp_rd
Part Number:  A-F132RD-RP33II

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 colour and 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 :-) 

Latest Model (2019) - Checked & tuned, for details see here

Latest model with 3.3-inch Rack and Pinion focuser featuring a turn/click to lock eyepiece holder, a new central lens element and new steel lens cell. 

Can also be supplied with Feathertouch 3.5" focuser & Rotolock. 

The William Optics FLT 132 features a new triplet objective with Ohara FPL53 glass for the ED element and a new improved central element that provides superior contrast when compared to the original design. A new robust steel lens cell holds the optic securely and precisely at very low temperatures without fear of the cell pinching.

Fitted with William Optic's new upgraded dual-speed 3.3" Rack and Pinion focuser with a smoother action and no image shifting with a capacity of up to 6.8kg (15lb). 

Includes William Optics Bahtinov Mask Cover, CNC carry bar, new guiding rings, new Losmandy-style dovetail plate and high quality soft carry case.

Note: This telescope is a special-order item, delivery is usually 15-20 working days.
