SharpStar 15028HNT Hyperbolic Newtonian Re... $2,730.00
The launch of Sharpstar 15028HNT, a fast-focal-ratio hyperbolic Newtonian astrograph, fills up the existing service gap in domestic market. Compared with the conventional parabolic mirror, the process of producing, manufacturing and testing hyperbolic mirror is much more intricate. Description The astrograph comes second to no one considering its rather fast focal ratio. The telescope is wrapped with durable carbon fiber material, artistically enhancing its appearance while sharply decreasing its weight. Sharpstar 15028HNT adopts Pyrex-alike glass, enabling the mirror to reach a quite stable reflectivity. Both primary and secondary mirrors wear enhanced aluminum coating, thus keeping a reflective rate at more...
Askar FRA 500 Quintuplet APO Astrograph (F... $2,549.95
Sharpstar Optics introduces Askar FRA500 astrograph, which is the youngest among the FRA family well-known to our customers. Compared with its siblings, the 500mm-focal-length refractor has an aperture size of 90mm (f/5.6), so Askar FRA500 can better fit into the scenarios of deep-sky imaging than the Askar FRA400. Besides, it is more lightweight and compact than Askar FRA600, which makes it a great choice for out-door observation or astrophotography. Description Askar FRA500 has inherited the legacies of superior FRA- series designing. It boasts a quintuplet air-spaced APO optical structure, a “three plus two” Petzval lens combination. The front lens group...
SharpStar 94EDPH Premium APO S Triplet Ref... $1,899.95
Our Take on the SharpStar 94 EDPH The 94EDPH is the largest telescope in the SharpStar EDPH family. Its aperture is 94mm and the focal length is 517mm, yielding a fast focal ratio is f/5.5. The 94EDPH is designed with triplet air-spaced APO lens structure, including two pieces of ED (extra-low dispersion) glass. This allows the astrograph to produce more sharp, flat images. With its compact form factor, fantastic appearance, and superb quality, the SharpStar 94EDPH is a great telescope for visual observation and sophisticated astrophotography. Description SharpStar 94EDPH uses the same reducer as the 76EDPH, making it easy to switch between the 76 and 94 for imaging different targets....
Askar FRA 400 Quintuplet APO Astrograph (F... $1,539.95

FRA also used in visual observation, this series creates versatile high-quality flat frame images for astrophotography, is the few great telescope of versatile optical tube. Description For easy parameter conversion between different lenses, the first-come of the FRA family features a Petzval-like quintuplet design (two pieces of which are special ED glass) with an aperture of 72mm, a focal length of 400mm and a focal ratio of f/5.6, providing a 44mm image circle. The FRA400 quintuplet astrograph has adopted modern optical design...
Askar 300 F5 Scope (FRA300) $1,199.99
Since their inception, Askar FRA series short focal ratio astrograph have been very well received by astronomical amateurs. This year, we launched the FRA300 Pro - the smallest 60mm F/5 Petzval astrograph with the fastest native focal ratio in the FRA series so far, its focal length is 300mm. Description The star is sharp and delicate. At the center of its field of view, the RMS radius can reach 2um. Even a serious user can also be satisfied when it comes to the shape of stars. It performs excellence with full-frame and supports 44mm imaging, which is a rare astrograph...
SharpStar 76EDPH Premium APO S Triplet Ref... $1,074.95
Sharpstar 76EDPH is the second arrival to the Sharpstar EDPH family. It has caught the spotlight for its aesthetic and streamline appeal since its entry to the market. Sharpstar 76EDPH features triplet air-spaced lens structure, including an ED(extra-low dispersion) glass ensuring an pleasing application in both visual observation and astrophotograph. This can effectively eliminate the chromatic aberration thus produce more detailed and higher-contrast images. Description The aperture size is 76mm, and the focal length is 418mm, so the focal ratio is f/5.5. The whole length of the main tube is only 332.9mm when used with the dew shield contracted. Its...
Askar FMA 230 Triplet Air-Spaced APO (FMA230) $808.00
The FMA230 has a compound lens system. The front objective lens comprises three lenses and the posterior reducer is composed of four lenses and thus it’s sometimes dubbed as a “three at the front and four at the rear” system. The aperture size of the objective lens is 50mm and the original focal length is 275mm thus we’ve got a relatively fast focal ratio of f/5.5. The objective lens contains two ED glasses which are adapted to cure chromatic aberrations. Description One can barely find an equal counterpart in the market as designing a three-element apochromatic objective lens in astrograph...
