TeleVue-60is Imaging System

60mm, f/6, APO (Doublet) Refractor.

The TeleVue-60is is optimized for cameras with up to APS sized chips (27mm diagonal), making it ideal for the majority of D/SLRs and CCD cameras. With a focal length of just 360mm (f/6), the TeleVue-60is delivers a nice wide-field for these smaller chip sizes. At six pounds, the 60is is twice the weight of the standard Tele Vue-60! The heft comes from the 6:1 dual-speed, 2" rack and pinion focuser with dual screw clamp ring locking, thread-in field flattener, 6-point suspended mount ring and heavy-duty adjustable balance bar. PLUS: The TeleVue TV60is includes Focusmate Fine Focus Accessory with 6:1 fine focus and carry bag.            


Exclusive Features:

  • The TeleVue TV60is has a 6-point mounting system to accommodate large pointing angles.
  • New 2" focuser with dual locking thumbscrews and brass clamp rings in both the focuser body and the drawtube.
  • The TeleVue TV60is incorporates a solid dovetail for mounting to Vixen, Losmandy (and other) plates.
  • TeleVue threaded field flattener lens assembly to maximize field performance for up to APS-size image formats, 27-mm diagonal
