Parabolic corrector

TeleVue Paracorr is a universal corrector that tightens and intensifies star images on all f-ratios from f/3.5 to f/8 without adding any false colour or spherical aberration. You no longer have to constantly shift a Dobsonian to keep objects centred for sharp viewing. Using a Tele Vue eyepiece, put M-13 at the edge of the field and enjoy resolving its beauty as it drifts across your view.

All parabolic mirrors used in Newtonian reflecting telescopes are limited in field sharpness due to coma. Even a perfectly made 13" f/4.5 parabola has only about 0.1 degree diffraction limited field.
