TAL-125-5APO is designed for both visual and astro imaging use, and provides stunning, high-resolution images virtually free of false color. This instrument combines a modern optical design with traditional, high-quality engineering for discerning astronomers.

Astro photography was an important design criteria for this telescope. The TAL 125-5APO optical design produces a flat field of view required for CCD or CMOS sensors for high-quality astro photography (just like photo lenses do). Most telescopes, apochromatic or achromatic refractors, produce a curved field of view that will require expensive field correctors to flatten the optical field.

TAL 125-5APO is ready for astro photography right out of the box. The unique TAL-125-5APO objective lens system comprises of three components, the first is a single biconvex lens, the second consists of a biconvex lens, biconcave lens and converging-meniscus lens, the third one consists of biconvex lens and biconcave lens. Two types of optical glass are used in the construction to provide superb corrections.

The latest TAL125-5 APO model is equipped with a smooth-friction type Crayford focusing mechanism and aluminum lens hood. Focal ratio is reduced from 8.9 to 7.5
