Sky-Watcher Quattro-8CF 205mm (8") f/800 Parabolic Dual-Speed Imaging Newtonian Carbon Fibre Optical Tube Assembly. The new Sky-Watcher Quattro series with their fast f/4 focal ratios, have been specially designed for high quality astrophotography with short exposure times. They are of course also fine telescopes for visual observations. Their tube interiors have knife-edge ray traced baffles to ensure no light is lost, and stray light is kept out! Its paraboloidal primary mirror is made of low thermal expansion, fast-cooling Pyrex glass.

Sky-Watcher Quattro-8CF 200 Features

Carbon Fibre Tube: Carbon fibre is a strong and lightweight material and has much better thermal stability compared to a steel tube. This is especially important for astro-photographers dealing with long exposure times. Imaging telescopes made of less thermally stable material can deviate from optimum focus after long time exposures. With a carbon fibre tube, it can remain in focus for a longer period of time and long exposure images will stay clear and in focus.

2" Dual-Speed Linear Power Focuser: The new linear power focuser utilises 4 precision ball bearings to support the drawtube and provide great stability and zero image shift while supporting a heavy eyepiece or camera. Moving the drawtube by the roller rather than a rack and pinion ensures exceptionally smooth operation, great feel and precise adjustability. The dual-speed feature has a second focus knob that has a 10:1 speed reduction to provide the super-fine adjustments even the most demanding users can appreciate.

Pyrex Mirrors: Both models feature paraboloidal primary mirrors made of low thermal expansion Pyrex glass resulting in substantially shorter cooling-down times.
