Reflectors

Reflecting telescopes use a single or a combination of curved mirrors to collect and focus light. The primary mirror can be parabolic (large diameter of the lens) or spherical (small diameter of the lens). These telescopes produce contrast images in true color with no chromatic aberrations. Reflectors are perfect for planetary observations as well as for studying deep-sky objects.

Reflector telescopes – say no to chromatic aberrations!


The first known successful reflecting telescope was built in 1668 by Isaac Newton. That telescope became a prototype for a modern telescope design that is called Newtonian telescope or Newtonian reflector. Reflector telescopes are highly appreciated by both amateur observers and professional users all over the world. The main advantages of this telescope design are high-quality views and the absence of chromatic aberrations. As we mentioned above, reflector telescopes are great for observing planets, satellites and deep-sky objects. Also, we should emphasize reflectors’ high light-gathering power that has a positive effect on the field of view and quality of astrophotography images.

Every optical design – and reflector is no exception – has its strong and weak points. The disadvantages of this optical construction are required regular adjustment, bulkiness; you have to use rigid and stable mount with reflector telescope.

Despite these small flaws reflector is one of the most popular telescope designs and in demand by stargazers all over the world. In this section you can find a wide range of telescopes, compare them and buy reflector telescope that will meet all your needs. In this section you can find a wide range of telescopes starting with entry-level Strike PLUS models and ending with sophisticated reflectors with GoTo function, for example Levenhuk SkyMatic 135 GTA Telescope. Compare different models and choose a reflector telescope that will meet all your needs.
