Draco 62 from Founder Optics has launched, it is a small and lightweight imaging refractor telescope with a quintuplet lens system, enhanced for celestial imaging. It is waterproof, has easy collimation, mechanical integrity, and compatibility, plus it can be used for observation and astrophotography.

The Draco 62, by Founder Optics, is a cutting-edge astrograph with a quintuplet refractor design, optimized for deep-sky imaging at f/3.9 with its reducer. It's lightweight, nitrogen-injected for fog and waterproof resilience, and boasts simple collimation with high mechanical stability. It includes versatile adapters and is designed for both astrophotography and observation.

Draco 62 features

Draco 62 features:

  • ED APO Lens: Five-element air-spaced design using ED APO glass.
  • Dedicated 0.83x Reducer-f/3.9: Fast f/3.9 focal ratio is ideal for deep sky astrophotography.
  • Waterproof & Fogproof: Nitrogen injected for waterproof IP67 rating. Hydrophobic coating on the air surface of the lens. No need to worry about the temperature difference between indoors and outdoors.
  • Unique Collimation Adjustment: Special design collimation function. Built-in ball bearing and spring structure, simplifying the twelve screws into two. Easy adjustment and accurate!
  • Mechanical Stability: Threaded way to connect. Reduce the risk of unwanted focuser movement caused by the focuser sagging during installation.
  • Compatibility for Camera Adapter: Supports ZWO cameras, provides M54, and M48 adapters, and can also be used with Founder Optics T2 ring mount for all camera types.
  • Rack & Pinion Focuser: One piece design Rack & Pinion focuser and draw tube. This integrated structure reduces the mechanical clearance and assembly tolerance. Compatible with ZWO EAF.
  • Lightweight: Only weighs 2.4kg. It’s 3.2kg including the tube ring, handle, and dovetail plate.
  • Perfect Accessories for Mounting: Multi-functional handle, combined with the tube ring and dovetail plate. Comes with tactical slide rails to provide multiple connection options.
  • Quick Dew Shield Lock Ring: Provides a quick dew shield locking ring, which can tighten evenly, firmly, and quickly.
  • Observation: Supports astronomical observation at the same time. One model for two uses.
