The Starwave 110 ED delivers slightly higher resolution and more light grasp than the 102mm ED for a small increase in weight and size. Deep sky and planetary images show slightly increased brightness and image scale, letting you discern slightly more subtle details at the eyepiece. Colour correction is better in the red Hydrogen Alpha regions of the spectrum than in the blue regions, and this is a great galaxy-imaging scope. We classify this telescope as a "Semi-APO" and it significantly outperforms an achromat refractor of equivalent focal length at an incredible price. With a Contrast Booster filter to remove any residual chromatic aberration at very high powers, it will compare to an APO costing several times the price on the moon and planets. The additional aperture of the 110mm ED design makes this a suitable option for those who want slightly more performance over a 4" refractor, but who still want a relatively portable telescope which won't over-tax their mount. The Starwave 110ED is still quite portable for field use. The focuser features the same robust design as the ED102 version, and an optional dedicated 0.8x reducer/flattener as well as the slightly larger aperture, give this telescope improved field performance over a larger area, making astro imaging with larger CCD chips and DSLR camera even easier. When using the flattener, the focal ratio changes from F7 to F5.6 (choose the flattener option in the drop-down menu below).
