Eyepiece case with many accessories

This small eyepiece case includes a useful set of accessories for the newcomer to astronomy. After having bought the telescope, people often don't have the right accessories to be equipped for all spotting situations. In many cases, beginners find it difficult to decide which are the eyepieces and filters they need.
With this set of accessories, the problem of choosing the right thing is solved, since it contains all and everything you need to make a start.This includes eyepieces for various levels of magnification as well as contrast filters for lunar and planetary observation.

Case contents:
1 x Plössl eyepiece 32 mm
1 x Plössl eyepiece 12.5 mm
1 x Plössl eyepiece 6 mm
1 x Plössl eyepiece 4 mm
1 x Barlow lens 2x
1 x Green filter No. 56
1 x Red filter No. 23A
1 x Orange filter No. 21
1 x Yellow filter No. 12
1 x Blue filter No. 82A
1 x Polarizing filter
1 x Crystal View Moon filter

Eyepieces
The 1.25“ Plössl eyepieces included come in various focal lengths, so you get a good range of higher or lower levels of magnification with many telescopes.The classic Plössl eyepiece structure is very good value for money. The four multicoated lens elements offer high transmission and low reflection.
Lens edges and eyepiece barrel are blackend, which is an additional way to avoid reflections.All eyepieces are fitted with a rubber eyecup to avoid stray light.
The filters included in the set can be screwed into the barrel of the eyepieces at any time.
The 32 mm eyepiece offers some extremely long eye relief. The low level of magnification allows for a large apparent field of view in the sky. This eyepiece does an excellent job not only when used for observation but also for photography. Just add a universal camera adapter and a digital camera, that's all it takes for anyone to venture out for their first steps in astro photography.

Filters
For the astronomer, filters mean greater pleasure in observation. That's why you will find a wide assortment of filters in this eyepiece case. The moon filter and polarizing filter, for instance, offer a pleasant view of the Moon's surface, with lots of contrast. Other colour filters are there to enhance contrast on the planets' surfaces. Certain details only come out when you intensify or attenuate different colours.

Barlow lens
The assortment also includes a 2x Barlow lens. This lens too features surface coating for higher transmission.The 2x Barlow lens allows you to increase the focal length of the telescope. Combined with the various eyepieces included in the set, the Barlow offers many different levels of image amplification.
The lens system is a cemented combination placed at the lower end of the unit, which makes for optimal focus position.The lens combination can be unscrewed and attached to the filter thread of all eyepieces. This way, amplification can be reduced from 2x to 1.5x. That's why this Barlow lens is well suited for many particular uses.

Case dimensions: 260 x 150 x 80 mm 1.25 Kg

Zygo Interferometer Testing For ED Refractor Telescopes!

We are extremely pleased to announce our Zygo Interferometer is now installed and ready for use! Our experienced staff can test refractor lenses up to 120mm aperture and provide a comprehensive 2 page report showing the optical quality and Strehl ratio, plus much more information. We are using the very latest Zygo MX software to provide a more detailed report compared to other standard reports.

 

The interferometer is essentially a measuring instrument. Within the interferometer is a calibrated laser that is pointed through the optical test surface, then onto a high quality reference sphere, then back through the test subject then to an internal camera which gives us the measurement on the screen. From this, we can adjust the position of the test optic and the reference sphere to obtain a perfectly calibrated system. The more central the laser to the test optic and then on return, the better and more accurate reading and measurement we can take. This takes a lot of adjustment to get the best results from the optical surface. Once the measurement has been taken, we are provided with a series of results that show the optical quality of the surface plus other information. Continue reading for an explanation of the individual values and you can also see a test report that was done on one of our RVO Horizon 60 OTAs. 

We are offering certain telescopes with a Zygo test at an extra cost. Mainly ED doublets and triplets. All available telescopes with a Zygo test report are listed here. Just select Zygo Test Report from the drop down box at the top of the listing and we will test the optics in house and provide a full 2 page report with your scope. This will show you the optical quality of your telescope optics. We can also offer this service on your refractor telescope. Please get in touch for more details about this. 

At Rother Valley Optics, one thing we pride ourselves on is customer service and quality of our equipment. When we test your telescope, we will ensure that it is of the highest quality otherwise, we will reject the scope under our strict quality control and test another model for your peace of mind. One of the main values to look at when testing a refractor is the Strehl ratio. The higher this number, the higher quality lens you have. At Rother Valley Optics, we will guarantee the highest possible Strehl ratio for your telescope.  We will aim to provide 0.95 Strehl or higher on Takahashi, RVO Horizon, William Optics and many more! Generally, the higher the Strehl ratio, the lower the Astigmatism and Coma meaning a better image quality from your instrument. 

Other measurements such as the PV and RMS are important too. With these measurements, the lower the number the better as it shows less curvature on the lens. The flatter an optical lens, the better it will perform. The PV rating (Peak To Valley) is a measurement from the highest point (Peak) to the lowest point (Valley). From this we get the RMS (Root, Mean, Square). This is a similar figure to the PV and measured exactly the same way. The RMS is basically an average height difference from the PV so again, the lower the better. As you can see form the example below, we measured an RMS of just 0.027 wave which is a very good value.

We also measure the Power with our systems which is essentially the error from the reference sphere to the test optic. The reference sphere we use on our system is a very high quality sphere so the closer to zero the Power, the less error between the 2 elements thus ensuring a higher quality optical surface. 

You will also see some more values such as Astigmatism and Coma. Again, these are measured by the interferometer when we take measurements of the optical surface after adjustment. These are values which ideally would be at 0 but as our test optics are all curved lenses, there will always be astigmatism and coma present. The lower the number, the less of these aberations you will effectively see but with most refractors, you can buy field flatteners which will compensate for the coma anyway. The astigmatisms value is explaining the error between the symmetrical curvature of the lens. Basically, no lens will be perfectly symmetrical, the lower the astigmatism, the more symmetrical the lens surface is. 

Once the Zygo test report has been completed, the optical alignment is thoroughly tested and tuned to ensure they are spot on before they leave us. 

All available telescopes are on the website at the link below and ones we've tested already that are available straight away are also listed.

Here is an example of the test what we provide. This was a test on one of our Horizon 60 ED OTA's.
