FMA230 is equipped with useful standard accessories.
The pair of tube rings are artistically pierced. Its stalks are lengthened which means that the tube rings provide more room for the devices, like a camera, that are attached to the FMA230, so they won’t collide with the dovetail plate under the astrograph.
In order to solve the awkwardness of carrying around your astrograph when you engage in field astrophotography, the FMA230 is designed with a pretty-looking and utility handle. The detachable handle is installed on the top side of the tube ring. The handle is not just literally a handle, the dovetail slot carved out of the handle can also be a base for the attachment of finders, guiders or ASIAIRs that have a corresponding dovetail foot. So you have more room to integrate as many accessories as possible. Besides, the handle is carved with 45°Arca-swiss style slots at the sides, so an upside-down handle can be directly slid into a corresponding Arca-swiss clamp on a camera tripod.
The lightweight and compact FMA230 is a new sibling from the Askar FMA- family, it will definitely bring your observing and imaging experience to a whole new level!
