The Askar FRA300 is a 60mm f/5 Quintuplet Astrograph Telescope. These telescope designs place great emphasis on optical, as well as mechanical quality making them the perfect instrument for Astrophotography and the product designation 'FRA' stands for a Refractor telescope with an integrated corrector element for a flat and corrected field of view.

The Askar FRA300 is a 5-element Petzval apochromat with a 300mm focal length, f/5 and 60mm aperture. There are 2 ED glass elements built into the lens for good correction of chromatic aberration. This APO is also corrected for cameras up to a full frame sensor.

The dew shield also provides good protection against stray light and is retractable. The large focuser holds heavy cameras and the dual-speed gearing allows very precise focusing.

There are T2, M48 and M54 threads also available for different connection types. The working distance is optimized for all popular cameras, from mirrorless systems and DSLR's to astro cameras (CMOS and CCD).

While this telescope was designed for Astrophotography, it is also suitable for visual observations too.
