With the dedicated Flattener 61 it is a superb little astrograph for DSLR or CCD Imaging or wildlife photography.

The FPL53 element offers a significant advantage over older FPL51 designs, the Zenithstar 61 has very good colour correction.

Each scope is tested by William Optics on their new 2017 Interferometer and star tested to ensure that WO's renowned high optical standards are maintained.

The 2" dual speed rack and pinion focuser is both strong and precise and can be motorised.
