Sumerian Alkaid

Alkaid

The Sumerian Optics “Alkaid Compact” travel telescope is designed to carry a  8", 10”, 12" or 14" (see the specifications below).

The Alkaids are including MoonLite CR2 dual speed, Led Red Dot Finder and cooling fans primary mirror. The Alkaid 8" has an Antares helical focuser.

The Alkaid 8, 10 and 12 have a GSO F-5 primary mirror.

 

New is the ultra stable Alkaid F-4 travel telescope. A F-4 primary mirror makes the telescope extremely stable and gives the possibility to use heavier (better) eyepieces. If you prefer stability above a little more coma go for the F-4 Alkaid. It's always possible to use a coma corrector.

Customers who want to use their own primary mirror has to know that the Alkaid travel scopes are balanced for telescopes with a focal ratio between F-4 and F-5. Primary mirrors above the F-5 are difficult to balance. Primary mirrors above the F-5.5 won't be excepted because the Alkaid isn't designed for this large focal ratio.
