Stellar Apo

Katie Curtis
Stellarvue adds a new affordable 4-inch apochromat to its line of premium-quality refractors. The SV102ED ($1,095) features a 102-mm f/6.95 ED (extra-low dispersion) doublet objective for color-free performance. As with all Stellarvue telescopes, each unit is assembled and star tested at the company's headquarters in Auburn, California. The telescope comes complete with a 2-inch dual-speed Crayford focuser, a CNC-machined clamshell tube ring, and a red-dot reflex finder. A Starlight Instruments Feather Touch focuser upgrade is available for $300 at the time of purchase.
