ASTELE 203 (Astronomical Telescope)

ASTELE™ 203 EL

The ASTELE™ 203 is a superb astronomical telescope for the professional or serious amateur astronomer.

Its optical design is Maksutov Cassegrain.
The large 203 mm aperture produces bright, razor sharp images.
Its diffraction limited optics are multi-coated and make it a great instrument for doing astrophotography, delivering pin-point images over a 35mm format.
If you're looking for a telescope with large aperture and superb optics, the ASTELE™ 203 is that and more. The ASTELE™ 203 uses U.S. standard 1.25" O.D.-sized eyepieces (hundreds are available).

The ASTELE™ 200 is available in three models

  • The ASTELE™ 203 OTA (Optical Tube Assembly).
  • The ASTELE™ 203 G (German Equatorial Mount)
  • The ASTELE™ 203 EL (with motorized base, shown)

The ASTELE™ 203 G (German Equatorial Mount) comes with slow-motion controls, setting circles, polar axis finder, accessory tray and fully adjustable aluminum tripod. 

Finish: black
Photo adapter for standard cameras and lens shade are available separately.
