Item specifics

Used: An item that has been previously used. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully ... Read moreabout the condition
Type: Refractor
Max. Magnification: More than 100x Lens Coating: Coated
 Tal 100R Refractive Telescope
Tripod shown is for illustration only and is NOT included.

1000mm focal length, with 6x finder scope. Included is both a 6.3mm finder which gives a magnification of 155x, and a 2x Barlow lens to further increase the magnification, as well as a right angle finder. The finder can be removed and an M42 mount camera (or a Canon DSLR, or Micro Four Thirds etc. with the correct adapter cheaply available on eBay) can be used which effectively converts the telescope into a 1000mm f/10 lens with a surprisingly close focus distance of just a few meters.

The last image shows a sample from a Canon 550D which was mounted onto the telescope. No post processing has been applied.
The condition optically is superb, with no dust or marks to the glass. Cosmetically the barrel of the telescope is slightly scuffed. but otherwise fine. All mechanical functions work as they should.
