If you want to raise your game, you need change your thinking.

Our Refractor telescope designs are not what you would expect. Original. Progressive. British Engineered. No more badge engineering.

Using high grade aircraft grade materials, you can now have a telescope that could last you the rest of your life. You can upgrade your telescope from a Doublet to a Triplet whenever you are ready to up your game. You will even be able to use your existing telescope as a donor. Our revolutionary Zero7Gee Rack & Pinion Focuser provides a precise optical train, even when loaded with a heavy payload CCD/Filter wheel.

The Futuro APO Range will be: 

f6 80mm/102mm and 130mm ED Octagon Doublet/Triple lens cell with in-built dew heating (Sensor control optional), with our Zero7Gee Focuser cell, or with the option of your own choice of focuser.

1.0x and 0.8x Flattener/Reducers are currently in development.

The supplied in-built Vixen-style inverted Top Tail is for piggy-backing and also acts as a handle as part of the design. The Lower rail, is either Vixen Style with Losmandy plate as an option in either Black or Silver dependent on colour scheme. Retractable Dew Shield (Carbon Fibre optional).
