Tele Vue Optics and Finger Lakes Instrumentation have teamed together to create a "turn-key," wide-field imaging system dedicated to the astro-imager. The flat-field, fast focal ratio, and short focal length of the NP127fli are a perfect match for the ProLine PL16803 camera. Together they produce over a 4° field of beautifully sharp stars!

Tele Vue Optics and Finger Lakes Instrumentation have teamed together to create a "turn-key," wide-field imaging system dedicated to the astro-imager. The flat-field, fast focal ratio, and short focal length of the NP127fli are a perfect match for the ProLine PL16803 camera. Together they produce over a 4° field of beautifully sharp stars!

The NP127fli has been designed to ideally position the Atlas focuser near the center of its travel. Tele Vue's "Large Field Corrector" lens sits within the Atlas and is properly located to accommodate the combined path length of FLI's CenterLine filter wheel and ProLine cameras. All connections use FLI's Zero Tilt Adapter system. Additionally, Tele Vue's unique image plane tilt correction is incorporated into the new rear section of the NP127fli. In the final stage of the build process at Tele Vue, each scope is set-up so that the imaging train will be as close to perfectly adjusted as possible. User adjustability is built-in to allow for any possible differences between a customer's existing pieces of equipment.

Gordon Haynes First-Light Images
with the FLI ProLine 16803 CCD camera

This astrograph saw first light in the hands of Gordon Haynes of the UK. The complete imaging chain consists of the Tele Vue NP127FLI astrograph + FLI Atlas focuser + FLI CenterLine filter wheel + FLI ProLine 16803 CCD camera (4096x4096 9micron pixels with a diagonal of 52.1mm). All connections made with FLI Zero Tilt Adapters.

“Although David [Nagler] mentioned ... that there is some tweaking available to the end user I didn't find this necessary so the first light image is produced from the system as it arrived. From my perspective and first use it is truly plug and play.”
“The system is proving to be very easy to use and the focus is very stable with checks necessary only after meridian flips and filter changes — not due to temperature changes. Only one adjustment was necessary for this [Andromeda Galaxy] image.”
— Gordon Haynes

“Regarding my thoughts it is quite easy, I have used all kinds of telescopes over the years, different brands and sizes but the Tele Vue-NP127fli was the first one that was perfect out of the box, without the slightest tweak needed, plus the outstanding sharpness, field correction, and rigidity, to me it is a perfect instrument.”
