These are TEC’s portable telescope designs. Ranging from 140mm to 180mm in aperture, these telescopes are a great balance between convenience and precision. With their smaller size and weight, these models are easy to carry, easy to set up, and easy to adapt. They can be used with a wide variety of mounts and can be outfitted with many different accessories.
APO140FL F/7 – TEC’s most popular and smallest model. Weighing just under 20 lbs, this telescope is the most versatile and a great telescope for those that value versatility. This telescope has the greatest range of mounts available to it and can be outfitted for either astrophotography or visual observation.
APO160FL F/7 – Slightly larger than the APO140FL F/7, this telescope gives the user that little extra aperture to look through the stars. This telescope is almost as versatile as the APO140FL F/7, often fitting on similar mounts and able to switch easily from visual observation to astrophotography.
APO180FL F/7 – The largest portable telescope that TEC offers, this unit weighs around 40 lbs including the rings, plate and handle. With a 53″ extension, this telescope pushes the limits of a portable telescope and requires a stable, higher capacity mount than its smaller iterations.
