CASSINI
 


The C-1100102EQ1 Reflector Telescope is mounted on a German Equatorial mount. The mount features solid metal construction, setting circles and locking knobs in declination and right ascension, counter balance shaft and weights, latitude adjuster, and slow motion controls with detachable flex cables in both axis. A motor drive can also be attached for added tracking capability (motor drive sold separately). The Mount is attached to a very sturdy, fully adjustable, pre-assembled metal tripod with retractable rubber feet. The tripod also features an accessory tray with slots to place 4 1¼″ eyepieces or lenses. The telescope attaches to the EQ mount by an adjustable tube clamp which in combination with the adjustable counter balance weights ensures easy fluid movement of the telescope at all times.

The Cassini C-1100102EQ1 optical tube assembly features an 1100mm focal length. The Primary mirror is 102mm's in diameter and features a heavy duty mirror cell with push / pull collimation screws. The primary mirror is fully aluminized with 92% reflectivity and has a Silicon Monoxide Quartz overcoat which protects the coating. The 102mm diameter mirror provides a resolving power of 1.14 arc seconds. The secondary mirror has an obstruction of approximately 25% linear (approximately 6% of the total area). The optical tube assembly is diffraction limited at λ4 (¼ wave in Sodium light). The finderscope is Cassini's Mars' Eye electronic Finderscope which helps by getting the observer behind the telescope without losing the surrounding field of view when targeting objects. Included with the Cassini C-1100102EQ1 are a 1¼″ 25mm Astroscopic eyepiece, a 1¼″ 10mm Plössl eyepiece and a 3x 2-element Barlow lens. The 25mm is a 3 element, fully color corrected, modified Rank Kasspheric eyepiece with an apparent field of view of 52°. The 10mm Plössl eyepiece is a 4 element fully color corrected eyepiece with an apparent field of view of 52°.
