Crafted in Japan with a focus on astrophotography, this elite extender lens system transforms the R200SS parabolic mirror Newtonian reflector into an F5.6 astrograph. The Extender PH kit is specifically engineered to amplify the focal length by 1.4x, elevating the 800 mm (F4) R200SS Newton reflector to an impressive 1120 mm (F5.6). Its sophisticated optical configuration, comprising 4 elements in 3 groups, adeptly corrects coma aberration, ensuring images remain crisp from center to edge.

This extender casts a wide enough illumination to cover the field of a full-frame camera with a 44 mm image circle, making it ideal for comprehensive celestial photography. When paired with the eyepiece adapter, it allows for the use of a 31.7 mm eyepiece, facilitating both detailed astrophotography and enriching visual observations.

Employing the same anti-reflective AS coatings found on the premium VSD 100 f/3.8 astrograph, the Extender PH kit achieves an exceptional light transmission rate of 99.9% per lens surface. The interior's completely matte finish significantly reduces light loss, ghosting, and scattered light. Moreover, when utilized with the 50.8 mm eyepiece adapter, it doubles as a high-performance Barlow lens for visual observations, eradicating coma and aberrations across the entire field of view.
