They also have very stable images, owing to their closed tube design (eliminating thermal currents within the light path) and rapid cool-down times resulting from their relatively thin objective-lens elements. This has long made them the instrument of choice for high-definition study of the Sun, Moon, planets, and close double stars. It should be mentioned here that, whatever level of refractor you eventually select, be sure that it has internal glare stops. These are concentric flat black rings with a graded series of openings in them, with the largest ones near the front end of the tube and progressively smaller ones toward the eyepiece end as they match the converging cone of light formed by the objective.

Despite the fact that they are no longer being made, they gave many stargazers their very first views of the heavens, and are still occasionally to be found on the used market today. 5-inch f/10, and Criterion’s 4-inch f/12 Dynascope. ).
