Created in 2008, CFF Telescopes delivers custom, high-quality telescopes designed and made exclusively in Europe. The name of the brand stands for ‘Coma Free Field’ Telescopes, which is what the company offers in Apochromatic Refractor, Ritchey-Chrétien and Classic Cassegrain telescopes.
The mechanical elements of all telescopes are made in Poland, designed by Cătălin Fus – company founder and mechanical designer. Oil-spaced refractor optics are made in Hungary, designed, assembled by Pal Gyulai (formerly GPU Optical). Reflector optics are made in Romania, designed and thoroughly verified by Octavian Stănescu, a mirror maker with more than 20 years’ experience and dedication. All the glass used in the company’s lenses or mirror substrates are high-quality, from producers such as Schott, Ohara, Corning and CDGM.
The company has announced the following updates to its product line:
– The CFF180mm F/7 refractor will be reintroduced, as a replacement of the CFF 185mm F/6.8.
– The CFF 105mm refractors will be phased out of their commercial lineup.
– The CFF 250mm reflector line will be also phased out.
– Due to a steady increase in demand for its 350mm and bigger sizes, the company will expand its lineup with 450, 500 and 550mm size Ritchey-Chretien and Cassegrain telescopes.
