Post by Hardwarezone »

I've been surfing some china websites and decided to compile this list for the convenience of others.

折射镜 Refractor
施卡 Schmidt-cassegrain
马卡 Maksutov-cassegrain
牛反 Newtonian reflector
卡塞格林 Cassegrain
焦距 Focal length
光轴 Collimation
像场 TFOV
广角目镜 Wide-angle eyepiece
目视 Visual
色差 Chromatic abberation
多层镀膜 Multi-coated
宽带绿膜 Broadband coatings
双筒 Binoculars
赤道仪 Equatorial mount
经纬仪 Altazimuth mount
微调 Micro-adjustment
三脚架 Tripod legs
铝合金 Aluminium alloy
小黑 150mm F5 newtonian SW branded

主镜 OTA
物镜 Objective lens
物镜座 Lens cell
双分离 Air-spaced
双胶合 Cemented-lens
无齿调焦座 Crayford focuser
有齿 Rack-and-pinion focuser

光阑 Baffle rings

In general the higher end scopes and accessories aren't cheaper than north-america and european price because the export market have bigger sales volume.
The smaller accessories like plossl eyepieces , diagonals, collimators are surprisingly cheap under $30 on Taobao. Vibration pads are barely $13.

I've seen sites calling it "杜甫森" (Taiwan) or "多布森" (China).
