ONTC Newtonian Telescopes from Teleskop Service are a unique system on the market
You choose the components and the bias of your telescope and get a Newtonian without compromises for reaching your astronomical goals. Just tell us what you want to do with the telescope and we make it according to your needs.The ONTC Newtonian with 254 mm aperture and 1600 mm focal length:
This Newtonian ist he ULTIMATE telescope for lunar and planetary observation. With a suitable secondary mirror, we can force the obstruction below 20%. Optically, this ONTC Newtonian achieves the power of an 8“ APO refractor for a fraction of the price.
Of course, the Newtonian can be used for photography. Up to APS-C format, not even a corrector is needed.
The advantages of the ONTC telescopes in short:
♦ optimized configuration for astrophotographic or visual use by choosing different focusers, focus positions or secondary mirror
♦ Exchange of the secondary without problems - anytime
♦ Only selcted optics are used. Also the
functionality of the optical and mechanical components are tested before sending out the ONTC.
♦ A complete production log is included.
♦ The edge of the secondary is blackened against reflexes and false light.
♦ The carbon tube is made in Germany. It is manufactured in a carbon/rigid foam sandwich construction for a perfect stability at an unbeatable weight ratio
♦ Fantastic temperature compensating performance - barely any temperature based focus drift
♦ The mirror cells are manufactured in Germany, too. The telescope can be collimated completely without tools.
♦ One telescope, many focal distances - due to different correctors! The correctors need different focus positions above the focuser. The tube offers three positions of the main mirror cell.Anti Reflex Paint for maximum image contrast
We use Berger Antireflexfarbe (anti reflex paint) for the inner wall of the tubes. It blackens the wall as good as velours, but has less weight and will not attract dust. The optics will stay clean.
The image at left shows how dark the paint is. The diagram (image above) shows the direct comparison of chalkboard coating / Berger anti reflex paint.
Choose a suitable focuser in the "options" list
The free choice of the focuser makes the ONTC Newtonians unique. Thus you can easily adapt your new telescope optimally to your wishes. Please do not forget to select the base for attaching the focuser to the tube. You can choose from our whole range. A few recommendations are given below:UNCN2 - TS 2" UNC Newtonian Crayford focuser - short
Economically priced 2" Crayford focuser for observing and photography with DSLR cameras. The short focuser needs only 55 mm optical path.Item number of the necessary base: TSNB300 - please add to your order.FTF2008BCR - Starlight Feather Touch 2" focuser - 20 mm draw tube travel
The best 2" focuser we know, for maximal stability without compromises. In addition, the focuser is very short, together with the base, it is only 50 mm heigh.Item number of the necessary base: BA20CL-303mm - please add to your order.CRL2,5r - MoonLite 2.5" Newtonian focuser with 360° rotation
The 2.5" Moonlite focuser is especially precise and perfectly suited for heavy cameras. It is ideally suitable for long 2" correctors or for the TS 2.5" Wynne corrector. The focuser offers, besides 2" receptacle, also a screwed M68x1 connection.Item number of the necessary base: CRL2,5-BA300 - please add to your order.Orion ACU-3S 3" Crayford focuser with M82x1 thread
The massive 3" focuser is our recommendation for astrophotographers who want to work with a 3" Newtonian corrector (N-AGK3, TS 3" Wynne or TeleVue VIP-3010.) These correctors are screwed to the M82 thread of the focuser.Item number of the necessary base: NB300-ORACU3 - please add to your order.Starlight FTF3215B-A TRUE 3" Feather Touch Focuser
THE high-end focuser for Newtonian telescopes and real 3" Correctors from TeleVue, ASA or TS Optics. with very precise 3" compression ring clamping - as good as screwed adaptions.Item number of the necessary base: BA32CL-300 - please add to your order.
We recommend three focus positions above the 2" tube of the focuser:1. astrophotography with the standard coma correctors - 65 mm above the 2" tube (STANDARD Version)
This version is optimized for the standard correctors like the TS coma corrector, the Baader MPCC or the ASA Quattro. For visual use, you need to add the 2" extension tube - Art.Nr. TSV235.2. astrophotographic use with the ASA 2" Reducer/corrector - 90 mm above the 2" tube
This position is ideal for the use of the ASA Reducer/corrector ASA2KORRR. The reducer brings the system up from f/4 to f/2.8.
This version is also suited for the GPU
corrector, which may not put completely into the focuser.3. Visual use - 35 mm above 2" tube
We recommend that version for visual use of the telescope. For this telescope line, we recommend the 58 mm secondary mirror. The 2" Paracorr VIP-2010 also works fine with this focus position.
The focus positions are calculated and achieved by changing the primary mirrors position. Of course you can also get other positions if you want. For expample if you want to use a 3" coma corrector. The three we mentioned are the most common ones.

If you order the instrument via our webshop, you can send us a notice in the text field below the payment methods. There is a textfield "Informations concerning your order" where you can tell us what you want to have. The alternative is dropping us an email : firstname.lastname@example.org
Tube color - Carbon nature or laminated - included in the price:
Instead of a neat carbon glossy film, we can also offer a hard constrast white finish. Other colours are also possible, but bright colours will show more signs of wear if transported frequently.
Rings or bar directly connected to the tube - no change of the price:
The scope of delivery also includes rings with a flat base on both sides. According to your wish, we can also attach a dovetail bar (Losmandy or Vixen style) directly to the tube. If choosing that modification, the tube gets additional fibre layers where necessary.
