The Altair Astro Wave Series 102mm f715mm Super ED Triplet APO is a highly specified refractor, offering premium class visual or imaging performance. This telescope is a natural choice for customers wanting the best possible optical performance in a portable package, and has attracted rave reviews from our customers, as well as a very positive review in Astronomy Now Magazine where it was thoroughly tested in visual observing mode and imaging mode, with the optional Planostar dedicated flatteners and focal reducers. With smaller dimensions than the famous Altair 115mm Triplet APO, the 102mm is slightly more practical, offering more portability and compactness.
