Description


Lepus HD telecompressor for Celestron Edge HD 9.25 Optical Tube Assembly.

The Lepus 0.62X is a new 4-element telecompressor available from Optec that has been specifically designed to work with newer Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes such as the Meade ACF or the Celestron EdgeHD. The Lepus 0.62X has a back-focus of over 100mm, making it capable of fully illuminating a 22mm diagonal CCD chip. Thanks to a new line of Lepus camera mounts, this optimal back-focus distance can be maintained no matter what camera is used.

The Lepus telecompressor is available in several varieties:

#19405 - Lepus-STL 0.62X Telecompressor with 2.156" X 24tpi STL Threads. Retail: $225.00

#19407 - Lepus 0.62X Standard Edition contains all of the features described above with a telescope-side 2-inch barrel mount and a dovetail for Optec camera mount attachment. Retail: $199.00

#19409 - Lepus HD C8 EdgeHD Edition is mounted into a 2"x24tpi thread for direct attachment to Celestron 8" EdgeHD SCT. The mount is close-coupled to maintain optimal image quality. Retail: $275.00

#19410 - Lepus HD C9.25 EdgeHD Edition is mounted into a 3.25"x24tpi thread for direct attachment to Celestron 9.25" EdgeHD SCT. The mount is close-coupled to maintain optimal image quality. Retail: $275.00

#19411 - Lepus HD C11 EdgeHD Edition is mounted into a 3.25"x24tpi thread for direct attachment to Celestron 11" EdgeHD SCT. The mount is close-coupled to maintain optimal image quality. Retail: $275.00

About this Advertiser

1-888-488-0381Main Phone
Optec, Inc. is located in Lowell, Michigan. For over 30 years, the company has been in the forefront of research and development of astronomical, visibility, and video/CCD microscopy optical instruments for both amateurs and professional alike.

Optec was incorporated in 1979 and is the successor to DOAA Enterprises; a Detroit-based company founded by an Oakland University college student, Gerald Persha. Under the leadership of Persha, Optec has grown from a small basement operation to a corporation employing 10 technicians, machinists, and sales staff. Optec's roots are founded strongly in astronomical research instrumentation with products such as the SSP line of photometers, the patented TCF temperature compensating focuser and the Pyxis rotator series. Under new ownership in 2008, Optec continues to add innovative products such as the Pyxis LE, a high precision, low-profile camera field rotator and the Focus Lynx Focuser Hub.

In addition to the astronomical product line, Optec designs and manufactures optical couplers for video/CCD microscopy, atmospheric visibility measuring instruments such as the Model LPV transmissometer and the NGN integrating nephelometer. These unique instruments are used to monitor the air quality in many of the national parks in the USA as part of the Improve Network.

Optec maintains and uses the Optec Observatory, a small observatory and testing laboratory for Optec's astronomical product line. Optec Observatory is fully computer controlled with separate control room and observing deck. Recent additions to the observatory now allow remote operations of the telescope, SSP photometer, and CCD camera control software.
