BORG 107FL Officially Ready

BORG 107FL has been added in BORG lineup as below and we are now ready to happily accept the order. Looks like it took almost 2 years since 1st prototype showed up at 2015 CP+. I’d like to applaud great efforts by all of BORG staff. Congratulations!!

Personally I’m eager to use 107FL with 1.08x field flattener for galaxies.

This is item # 6207. Nice looking carbon fiber tube. Surprisingly 107FL is a backpackable 4″-plus scope.

You can see how 107FL is short. Lower is 89ED. It’s same focal length.

# 2107 – objective lens assembly : $2,195.00

A 82mm metal cap. This part allows to set a solar filter.

The objective lens section is firmly locked in after extended. So no collimation concern. I would like to show you how we can handle the objective assembly once 1st unit comes to myself.

# 6207 : $2,550.00 (OTA only is about 2.8kg)

6208s6

#6208 : $2,950.00

6209s1

#6209 : $2,450.00

6210s1

#6210 : $2,550.00 (OTA only is about 2.8kg)

Instantly you figure out how good package deal is. 6207 includes a carbon fiber tube, rack & pinion focuser and rings, two plates, so and so. Actually all included. The focuser itself is more than $400 value. The focuser has a plenty of focus travel – 65mm.

6207 and 6210 are both almost same OTA weight – 2.8kg. So extra weight from 90FL OTA set looks around 0.8kg or so. Not too bad at all. Still very lightweight as 107mm aperture scope.

    • Fred,

      The dedicated reducer will be coming up sometime next year.
      Please wait for that. But now the galaxy season until the spring.
      I hope the field flattener looks good match with 107FL for a while.

      Ted
