Increase Your viewing pleasure with the Parks Nitelight series rich field Newtonians. The exceptionally fast focal length design of the 8" Nitelight series makes them an ideal deep sky observational tool as well as an amateur astronomers first choice for deep sky astrophotography. Visually, the Nitelight series boasts an awesome 3-degree field of view. Using a Parks 25mm Gs-5 ocular one can observe, in the same field of view, the Andromeda Galaxy (m31) and its companions M32 and NGC205, or M81 and M82 and their companion galaxy NGC3077! In Pegasus, view the edge-on Spiral Galaxy (NGC 7331) and the remote "Stephen's Quintet" galaxy cluster in the same field of view! Photographically, exposure times can be reduced by two thirds. The Horsehead Nebula, for instance, can be brilliantly captured on hypered 3200 film in only ten minutes! Film failure, tracking errors, and eye fatigue are greatly reduced due to its fast focal ratio. These features make the Nitelight a favorite among comet hunters. The component quality of the Nitelight series is first class throughout, as Parks name is synonymous with quality. The mirrors are manufactured from low expansion Fine Annealed Pyrex glass and are free from material and surface defects. Each mirror passes a series of critical optical tests before it is assembled into a telescope tube assembly. Technicians at the Parks facility do all manufacturing, testing, and assembly. Each mirror is guaranteed to meet or surpass the industry standard Rayleigh limit of optical precision.
