SUPERMASER

Transportable Alt-azimuth Telescopes

The SUPERMASER is the brand-new super transportable altazimuth

telescope, made entirely in metal.

The SUPER MASER has the optical tube with 16 Serrurier type cross-

connected quick-release trusses; thus, it can be dismantled in three

distinct parts: top ring, central ring and breech with primary mirror.

The heaviest part of the 20" (510mm diameter) SUPERMASER weighs

just 21 Kg, while the 24" (610mm diameter) part weighs just 26.5 Kg!!

All the assembly phases have been carefully studied, making the

operation extremely easy thanks to mechanical devices that do not

need screws or keys; all connections are easy and quick to perform and

the time required for this operation is a few minutes.

Both 20" and 24" SUPERMASERs can be loaded into a small utility car,

assembled and disassembled safely by one person.

Mechanical stability: very high, unattainable from any wooden frame.

Thanks to the special altazimuth steel frame combined with a crossed

double-truss optical tube (Serrurier type) entirely in aluminium alloy,

SUPERMASER telescopes are almost free of vibrations during

focusing, even at high magnifications.

Fluidity and precision in pointing: incredible fluidity of movements

thanks also to the finely adjustable clutches, unparalleled by any

Dobson construction, disengagement from fluid and smooth movement;

no sign of return to release even at high magnifications. Any person can

manually track an object without any discomfort. All parts that make up

the movements are operated at very tight tolerances and are mounted

on ball bearings.

Maintenance of optical collimation: excellent. Thanks to the ball

quick couplings of the trusses, the Newton SUPERMASER telescopes

do not need to be retouched after installation; even after several years

of use and various installation and replacement operations, the

telescope continues to maintain optimum optical collimation.

Discomforts in assembly: absolutely none.    SUPERMASER

telescopes have a small size when disassembled, with exceptional

ease of assembly without the use of spanners, screws or knobs. 20"

and 24" types can be easily assembled and transported by a single

person.

Optical performance: very high, both in the deep sky and on planetary

objects, thanks to the accuracy in optical processing combined with

refined mechanical cells. The SUPERMASER telescopes are the only

ones of their kind to have a real steel fork that ensures unbeatable

stability.

Thermal stabilization: SUPERMASER portable telescopes are made

of aluminium with very high thermal conductivity compared to

conventional Dobson wooden telescopes, which results in much faster

acclimatization times, and 3 holes for self-ventilation are also available

on the protective housing of the primary mirror. On request, a fan can

be fitted in one or more holes to further speed up the thermal

stabilization time.

Warranty, durability and devaluation: the all-metal frame and coating

with polyurethane primer and enamel make it an extremely durable

instrument; that is why its devaluation over time is also very low. Only

the coating on the primary mirror has a limited life span, about 8-12

years in normal use situations; however, the cost of re-coating is

moderate.

The warranty on all mechanical parts for instruments sold in Italy is 5

years.

Thanks to the accuracy and precision of the joints combined

with the exclusive and practical quick-release system of the

trusses, mechanical and optical adjustments are not absolutely

necessary.

STANDARD EQUIPMENT: 

Lower and upper quick-release trusses.

Declination-adjustable clutches and azimuth.

Azimuth motion lock button

Declination movement stopper (to facilitate assembly of the top

ring)

Two padded multilayer wooden cases for secure storage and

transport of top-rings and trusses

8x50 finder scope with dovetail quick coupling, 90° view with

straightened image.

Dovetail coupling handle (for easy positioning of the optical tube).

Male dovetail coupling for optional accessories (laser pointers or

other)

Arrangement for quick and easy connection of optical encoders.

Optics caps for primary and secondary mirrors.

Bottom shroud with button connection

Central shroud with button connection

Light shield near focuser

Optics and type of glass certification

Instructions manual and tips for correct use of the instrument

OPTIONAL:

Fast coupling wheel and arms for an easy and fast positioning of

the scope.

Upper complete lens hood

Folding fork

Breech case

Spirit level and adjustable feet

Digital circles

Laser pointer  with dovetail quick coupling support

80mm finder scope

Carbon fibre trusses
