  • Description

    Since developing the Paracorr (Parabola Corrector) in 1989, TeleVue has made many refinements to enhance it's performance, for both visual use and imaging.  By eliminating the effects of mirror-induced coma, "fast" scopes could be made as aberration-free as "slow" scopes.


    TeleVue showed that f/4 scopes equipped with the Paracorr rivaled non-corrected f/8 scopes.  Shorter, more compact Dobsonians with dramatically larger fields became much more practical.  Indeed, at the 2009 WSP, Mike Lockwood took it a big step forward with his 20" f/3.0, "no ladder" Dob.  With a scope that fast, the Paracorr was definitely required!  Althrough reports of it working nicely were appreciated, TeleVue knew that, just as the standard Paracorr was optimized for f/4.5, the new Paracorr must be optimized for f/3.0.  Hey, it's their "ethos", after all!  And, as with the Ethos eyepieces, TeleVue's own Paul Dellechiaie played a major role in developing the Paracorr Type 2.
