Officina Stellare’s HiPer APO series are characterized by an innovative design, a result of the renowned famous “Italian style”. Nevertheless the aesthetic impact of telescopes like the Officina Stellare HiPer APO 130mm Triplet Apochromatic Refractor should not be the only aspect to attract the amateurs: underneath the quality of the components and the “supercar” finishing we find the most important optical and mechanical innovations developed in the past years for refractor instruments. All Officina Stellare Triplet APO refractors of the HiPer APO series are produced and delivered to the customer ready to be transformed into a special astrograph with reduced focal length, fast focal ratio and an edge to edge, pin-point corrected field.

The core of all HiPer APOs produced by Officina Stellare are the super-apochromatic objectives, obtained with an air spaced group of three lenses. These special triplets are made with an OK4 super ED glass lens, and two outer special dense crown glass lenses. The HiPer APO objectives can be undeniably considered as the best optics available on the market, period ! All optics are laser controlled in auto-collimation at very high magnification on an optical bench to assure the perfect collimation, the absence of aberrations and residual tensions. Each optic is supplied with an interferometric certificate distinguishing its uniqueness, the processing quality (PtV and RMS) and the performance (Strehl Ratio).

Officina Stellare’s HiPer APO refractors use mechanical characteristics which are unique worldwide. The use of an internal ventilation system for the 130 & 152mm units (named Officina Stellare Exclusive Cooling & Internal Seeing Stabilization System) coupled with a series of computer optimized technical design, laser cut and steel made internal baffles, has the double advantage of speeding up the cooling down time and minimizing the instruments’s internal air turbulence, thanks to the laminar airflow generated along the tube walls. The result is a more stable and sharp image at the eyepiece during visual use and the possibility to start faster to take pictures with the instrument.

The razor sharp image at the focal plane of the Officina Stellare "Hiper APO" 130mm Triplet Apochromatic Refractor Telescope is guaranteed by an adequate number of internal baffles and by the use of an opacising textile coupled with a specially composed black paint. The result is a perfect internal opaqueness. To make it more simple to take perfect pictures with very large CCD sensors, Officina Stellare Hiper APOs offer a simple way to counterbalance any non squaring error of the CCD and/or flexure of the imaging train from optimal optical axis. A simple, single movement, three point “collimation” system of the focuser allows the astroimager to have a perfect, uniform, imaging field.

One more sophisticated detail to the Officina Stellare "Hiper APO" 130mm Triplet Apochromatic Refractor Telescope is the design of the lens shade: when extracted completely, it is locked magnetically into the final, optimal, safe position. Even the protective objective cap is magnetically hooked to the lens shade. The tube is made by high vacuum process, top quality, carbon fibre, coupled with special, CNC machined, high resistance anodized, aluminium alloy parts. Thanks to the possibility of completely retracting the lens shade and the removal of the 3.5” focuser extension, the HiPer APO telescopes are compact and easy to carry. All HiPer APO telescopes are equipped with the legendary Starlight Instruments Feathertouch micrometric 3.5” dual speed Crayford focuser - the world's best focuser !

This exceptional telescope deserves nothing but the best focuser that exists globally, full stop ! So this magnificent telescope has exactly that - the sublime Feathertouch 3.5 micrometric focuser. It is simply without peer, and any serious telescope should mount this unbeatable focuser, there is simply nothing that compares to it !

It just doesn't get any better than this!


Officina Stellare HiPer APO 130mm Triplet Apochromatic Refractor Telescope Features...


* All optics are laser controlled in auto-collimation at very high magnification on an optical bench to assure the perfect collimation, the absence of aberrations and residual tensions

* These special triplets are custom hand crafted by the best opticians globally, using LZOS Lytkarino Glass from Russia. This is their best glass, their exceptional OK4 super ED glass, plus we use two outer special dense crown glass lens elements to achieve this unmatchable capability. This is simply the best lens in this class you will find globally !

Other refractor manufacturers try to compete, but this unit is head and shoulders above anything that anyone else can make globally. Ask any LZOS lensed refractor owner and they will tell you is peerless.

* A simple, single movement, three point “collimation” system of the focuser allows the astroimager to have a perfect, uniform, imaging field

* Optical tube is made by high vacuum process, exceptional quality carbon fibre, coupled with special, CNC machined, high resistance anodized, aluminium alloy parts. This is unique for this LZOS elns design, as only Officina Stellare do this wonderful lens in a carbon fibre tube.

* All HiPer APO 130 telescopes are equipped with the legendary Starlight Instruments USA Micrometric 3.5” dual speed focuser. Nothing else is acceptable.

* The focuser Offers enables a simple way to counterbalance any non squaring error of the CCD and/or flexure of the imaging train from optimal optical axis.

* Unique design of the lens shade: when extracted completely, it is locked magnetically into the final, optimal, safe position.

* Each optic is supplied with an interferometric certificate distinguishing its uniqueness, the processing quality (PtV and RMS) and the performance (Strehl Ratio). Other suppliers simply either do not have this capability to provide you with an individual test certification of this exact telescope being supplied, or do not have the capability to provide a test certification. We back up the performance of this telescope with a certificate attesting to THIS units capability that you have purchased, not provide you with exaggerated claims and rhetoric !
