The SV48P, one telescope we released a year ago. As our older telescope, it has some improvements on the basis of SV48. Its performance is relatively simple. Compared with the latest SV550 or the classic SV503, it may not perform well in some aspects, but it seems to have brought some new surprises to those who own it recently, especially for beginners.
We have compiled some feedback about it, hoping to serve as a reference.
"Very nice I love my sv48" ---Bruce Stoneman
" It’s a solid little performer for a budget scope " --- Shaun McCartney
Of course, there are some pictures to share with SV48P
My first Solar register of 2023. Very happy with the outcome and my SV 48P performance in conjunction with my brand New SV 705C. Used a baaderish white filter in front and a Baader Solar Continuum. Used a UV IR Cut Svbony filter too.
"The SV48P offers a lot of bang for buck. So far I am super excited to get out and take photos with it, and it is so rewarding to do so. I finally spent some time taking a proper photo because we had really clear skies for the first time in weeks, and I noticed an optical aberration - the stars had halos. Take note that I use narrow-band filters, so it's not CA.
I found that the objective lens edges are not blackened (Svbony, if you can, blacken the lens edges for new SV48Ps). So I took the risk and blackened the lens edges. The halo did improve, but it looked more like a ring. I did some experimenting and found that it is truly in focus when I see the ring. My suspicion was that the lens spacer was causing this ring - the spacer is transparent, and it is visible in the optical path. So I made a mask which has an inner diameter of 85mm which covers the lens spacer, and the ring is now gone.
I highly recommend making such a mask and giving it a try. I've had one printed now, which I will fix on permanently." ----Marc Klynhans
All in all, it's a compact, budget-friendly telescope for the hobbyist. It may not be able to capture many details, but there is still a chance to see all kinds of beautiful nebulae. For photographers who pursue extreme details, it may not meet your needs. SV550 and SV503 are better choices .
But as an entry level telescope - it will give you a reason to love it！
