Japanese Glass in Polished Aluminium or 23.4 Carat Gold Plated (£3598.00).

Dave Says: "This is a great telescope to own. It looks beautiful and for solar observing with a 2" Lunt Herschel Wedge, you can turn this instrument into a dual purpose scope.The highly polished surface of the aluminium tube reflects the Sun's rays and dissipates the heat so well that it remains very cool, just a few degrees above ambient on a very hot day.

At night, the tube is ready quickly for an amazing nights observing. The new 2" focuser really makes this a tactile experience. Love to try this with some mono-imaging to see what it can really do...Using a 2" dielectric diagonal, a 2x Barlow and a Wave 14.5mm eyepiece, it offers some of the best views of the planets and the Moon. You'll forget that this is 'just' an achromat. The Vixen lens cell has only a small amount of colour aberration, and that was only on a near-full Moon.

This one is Number 5... so only 75 left. Lovely to look at, lovely to use. It was a big hit at my BBQ! The 90mm is one of those 'scopes that is a genuine keeper and has a retro sc-fi style that makes it a real talking point. It's like Marmite. Mark at Moonraker is just as busy at 'rebodying' new customer telescopes, as he's building them from scratch. "

Mark from Moonraker says "Views through all are stunning, crisp with high contrast and minimal chromatic aberration. The lenses for these scopes have been secured from 1980's stock, Japanese manufacture and are brand new. I've been using this scope for imaging with a filter wheel and will post images soon. Whilst I did not design this scope with imaging in mind, the quality of the lens and moderate f stop with reducer and flattener encourages me to test it out.

Views of the moon are breath taking, Jupiter and Saturn are a wondrous sight to behold and views of deep space phenomena such as M42 and Pleiades are glorious. The 90mm lens really impressed at SGL8 where fellow astronomers commented on it's pin sharp images.

This telescope is also excellent for viewing the sun with an appropriate solar filter.

*****CAUTION. Always use correct filters on the finder {or remove the finder scope} and OTA for Solar viewing or blindness may result.
