Astronomy is a great
way to enjoy nature.
About telescopes: There are basically three types of
telescopes: Refractors, Catadioptrics and Newtonians. The first two are
quite expensive to manufacture with benefits not justifying the cost. Hence
we chose to make the Newtonians only.
Newtonian reflecting telescopes have a perfectly achromatic (free of false
colours) image that is viewed by the eyepiece at right angles to the
direction of the object being viewed to make sky viewing comfortable. The
eyepiece is near the front end of the tube so the overall height of the
telescope is also less.
What you can see with a telescope: Interestingly, even our
smallest model shows the Moon's crater filled terrain in amazing detail.
Ring system around Saturn, four Galilean satellites of Jupiter with its
cloud belts, phases of Venus, the red disc of Mars are all within its reach.
As the size of the telescope increases, you start seeing more and more
details in all objects, besides beginning to see new and fainter objects of
the sky like galaxies, nebulae, star clusters, gas clouds etc. The larger
the telescope, the more deep into space can it probe. It may be noted at
this point that howsoever big a telescope may be, all stars are seen as
bright points only, albeit much brighter than as seen by an unaided eye and
indeed countless stars invisible to the naked eye, become visible to the
bright eye of a telescope. On land objects too, you will find the telescope
an extremely interesting gadget for getting close up views of distant
landscape. You can even use it as a powerful telephotolens with your camera !
The key to a telescope's performance is, however, the sharpness of the image
that it forms. A small telescope with a good image quality will out perform
a large telescope with a poor image, as far as seeing details in an object
My experience of more than 37 years of making and testing telescopes
ensures that what you get from us is the best that can be got, not just in
India, but anywhere in the world, as far as image sharpness is concerned.
Unlike other locally made telescopes and some sparkling cheap ‘phoren’
telescopes that have just entered the market, we at Sharp Vision use the
best optics in our telescopes that makes them comparable to the world’s
Choose your telescope from our large range to suit your observing space and
budget. Each model is accompanied with books to get you started in Astronomy
and is guaranteed to give you years of pleasure and learning.
