The Omegon 90° Amici prism very simply turns your astronomical telescope into a telescope suitable for nature observing!
Astronomical telescopes produce an inverted image. This is normally no problem when observing the night sky, but becomes a big problem if you every want to do terrestrial or nature watching however. The Omegon 90° Amici prism provides the right solution. It re-inverts the image and also shows it non-reversed. In addition, it provides the observer with a 90° viewing angle, allowing comfortable viewing. This means any refractor, Schmidt-Cassegrain or Maksutov telescope can also be used for terrestrial observing. Not suitable for Reflectors.
Optically critical surfaces are multi-coated to prevent unwanted reflections and to increase the amount of light transmitted. The mechanically excellent finish of the housing provides a 1.25“ insertion diameter with filter thread and a compression ring for securely retaining eyepieces.
