The three element objective lens including the center SD glass produces crystal-clear, sharp and high contrast images with no trace of false color. Besides, the star images are as small as 20 microns at the edge of the imaging field with the built-in field corrector lens. A premium AS coatings applied to each surface to the lenses enhances visible light transmission to 99.5% on any single surface (400nm - 700nm) and assure extremely high light transmission.
