Custom-made Tri-Bahtinov Mask

Have a bespoke Tri-Bahtinov mask and cover custom-made to fit your telescope.


The maximum diameter available is 390mm, which roughly corresponds to a 14" telescope. Each mask has an oversized finger tab and is white for easy handling in the dark. Please note that due to normal design limitations the mask will not be a snug fit. It will sit loosely but securely on the end of the telescope.


When ordering, please fill in the fields to let me know the inside diameter of the ring at the front end of your telescope, and the focal length so I can optimise the pattern (if you use a focal reducer, include that). A photograph of the end of your telescope would be helpful too (please email to Alternatively, you can choose from the list of masks I have already made.

A bespoke mask (and cover for checking collimation) will be 3D-printed from durable, environmentally-friendly PLA plastic.
