Details

Astrozap AstroCap for 130mm Telescopes


Unlike a simple Hartman or Bahtinov mask, the Astrozap focusing cap is a multi-purpose tool which allows for quick 'shutter-like' operation. Just turn the wheel on the Astrozap Focusing Cap to the open position for focusing, or turn it to the closed position to keep the dust out, or to image dark frames with your CCD or DSLR camera.  

The Bahtinov focusing wheel can be easily removed and replaced with an off-axis wheel for off-axis viewing, or with an off-axis solar filter wheel for solar viewing on larger telescopes.

Astrozap AstroCap for 130mm Telescopes Features

  • Simply turn the thumbscrew to the open position, and turn to close.
  • No plastic plugs required, and no tools needed.
  • Optional wheels for off-axis viewing and off-axis solar viewing available for larger telescopes.
  • Astrozap focusing caps are made from lightweight aluminum and powder-coated texture black.
  • This model is sized to fit an 130mm telescope or dew shield with a diameter of 155mm to 165mm.
