The Tecnosky Owl is a line of telescopes from the Italian company, Tecnosky. The company started producing their-brand of triplet apochromats known as “OWL” in 2021. The first model in the series was the OWL 80/480 apochromat, which was released in spring 2021. The OWL 90/560 was then introduced followed by the OWL 130/900 SLD.
The company is in the process of releasing two new 70mm and 125mm aperture models. All OWL telescopes are based on a triplet lens design with FPL53 fluoride glass with the upcoming 125mm OWL offered as an ED doublet.
The Tecnosky Owl series offer fully multi-coated lenses, blackened lens edges and a lens hood on the tube with Strehl ratios up to 0.95. An optical interferometric certificate is included with each OWL telescope.
These compact apochromats are great for astrophotography and also offer excellent color image quality for observing. Tecnosky also supplies reducer-flatteners calculated to suit the optics for each model. This means that OWLs, with their aperture ratios of f/6 – f/7, are well suited to astrophotography.
Each Tecnosky Owl is manufactured from high quality materials, are multi-coated, elegantly manufactured and have a white, black and red color scheme. All models come with compatible prism rails, pipe clamps, Vixen viewfinder shoe, carry handle and retractable dew shield. Also included is a rotatable focuser with 1:10 reduction and locking mechanism, as well as a sturdy carry case.
The OWL 70 and 125 models will be available in the spring 2022. You can learn more here.
