Observing with Black Diamond ED100.

Fortunate indeed is the amateur astronomer with a Black Diamond ED100mm refractor on a clear night with transparent skies and a stable atmosphere. Turning the telescope to the Crescent Moon, the Apennine Mountains snap into razor-sharp focus revealing a cornucopia of jagged mountain ridges, canyons, and numerous small craters in ultra high definition.

Not far removed, reaching skyward, the crater wall of Archimedes pops into view in bold relief against the smooth flatlands that transverse the distance between it and the Apennine Mountains. This is lunar observing at its best – HD style.

The gas giant Jupiter displays its swirling equatorial bands in high-definition with festoons, and tonality within the bands. The great spot is clearly visible, discreetly contrasted from the surrounding Jovian landscape. Prominent deep-space nebula yield improved definition in gaseous outer extensions. Stars in globular clusters resolve to pinpoints. This is just the beginning of an incredible journey of exploration possible with a Black Diamond ED100.

 

Metallic High-Transmission Lens Coatings.

Each air-to-glass lens surface has exotic anti-reflection metallic coatings applied to ensure optimum light through-put of approaching 99.5%. The proprietary Skywatcher “Metallic High-Transmission Coatings” (MHC) are the finest photon anti-rejection coatings in their class.

Light-Baffled Optical Systems.

The objective lens cell is light-baffled to reject stray, unfocused light. The draw tube is likewise baffled to insure optimum contrast. The tube interior is flat blackened to help prevent unfocused internal light reflections from reaching the focal plane.

Precision 2” Dual Speed Crayford Focuser.

This exceptional focuser is standard supply on this our top model ED telescopes.

Optical focus is achieved by means of a mechanically ultra-smooth, backlash-free, precision 2” Crayford rack & pinion focuser-assembly. This focuser offers fine and ultra-fine focusing adjustments.

Tube Materials.

The optical tube material is rolled steel, powder-coated reflective gloss black with gold fleck accent. The front and back cells are cast-aluminum painted white, or black.

Telescope Tube Attachment Hardware.

The optical tube comes with attachment tube rings and dovetail bracket that allows it to be securely fastened to any Skywatcher (or similar) mount. The quick-release tube rings provided with Black Diamond ED100 are cast-aluminum, painted white.

 

Supply includes:

* Upgraded Premium backlash-free 2” Crayford focuser, with 1.25” focuser adaptor

    Thank you for help and advice when we purchased our telescope on Saturday. It has been absolutely amazing looking at the moon and others. Definitely the best family present ever.
    All the best to you and your family for Christmas.

    Hi Cris
    Just wanted to drop a line and say thanks for your advice and recommendations when selling me my telescope. Everything has exceeded my expectations and continues to amaze me.
    After many months of limited opportunity and bad weather. I’ve recently had some success and been able to capture my first images. I look forward to capturing more and exploring the wonders of the night sky.
    Kind Regards
    Lachlan R
