COMPACT ALT-AZ TELESCOPE: The new aluminum honeycomb structure is machined from billet. The fork is made of aluminum and composite sandwich, which allows us to divide the weight by two compared to a mechanically welded steel design. The primary cage of this model is made of lightweight aluminium, manufactured with CNC machine and assembled in our workshop with stainless steel screws. To ensure a very long service life and maximum protection against moisture, all our structures are anodized by special treatment. This new structure is more compact than our historical Classic model. The choice of the materials is made to give the maximum of stiffness to the telescope, to keep collimation during all the night. We have developped the Compact model with the same criteria that make the success of all our other models. The rocker in aluminium and honeycomb material, is painted with special process to give maximum weather and shock protection. All the parts of the telescope can be easily disassembled with no tools, for transport or storage. With no compromise you can have a large diameter telescope that fully collapses into a very small package.

Secondary cage: The dual rings in aluminum and carbon, provides very good rigidity. It is equipped as standard with Starlight FeatherTouch 2″ focuser and allow the use of heavy device (i.e big binoculars , heavy eyepieces CCD,…)

The large side bearings: They are mounted on ball bearings to ensure smooth and precise movements, even manually. They are removable without the use of any tool.

The truss pole: In one piece with quick release fasteners, this model patented by SkyVision greatly facilitates the mounting and storage of your instrument. The use of carbon is also a major asset for the preservation of collimation during an observation session.

The mirror cell: This part of the telescope is truly fundamental. Our cells are machined with the greatest care and precision. They are tailor made and adjusted for each mirror. All the process is computer calculated and controlled. Your optics will give you the best. On the rear side, Three large thumbscrews allow you to achieve a fast and crisp collimation.
