The Radian Raptor 61 refractor is a very portable, widefield f/4.5 apochromatic triplet. This is the first telescope offering from Radian Telescopes which is a new company founded by OPT to create products for astrophotographers. In the video below I take a quick look at the telescope itself, install the optional electronic focuser and talk about the back focus requirement.

I’ll be discussing this telescope more in the future as I have an opportunity to image with it. So far I’m impressed with its overall design, construction and appearance. The scope features an apochromatic triplet optical design with premium glass and multi-coatings. More specifications are listed below…
