Newtonian

Astrophotography and deep-sky visual enthusiasts will appreciate the telescope’s fast f/3.9 focal ratio, which means shorter exposure times and a wide field of view that is ideal for serious deep sky observations. The use of carbon fiber for the optical tube assembly reduces the total weight of the instrument by three pounds. It also makes focus point drift virtually nonexistent, which is key to getting successful long exposures during nights with large thermal changes.

Hybrid Truss-Tube Dobsonians

This is a hybrid truss-tube Dobsonian because the secondary-mirror is held inside a tube (like a traditional Dobsonian telescope) rather than an open cage.

Nowhere do you get as much light for your money like a good Dobsonian. Disassembly of the scope, which does not require tools, ensures a trouble-free transport of this great scope -- even in small cars. The entire structure has been optimized for maximum stiffness with minimal weight. The combination of high altitude bearings with optimized aluminum structures allows fine-adjustment flow at high magnifications.

This is an ideal workhorse for the deep-sky observers. A 254mm mirror collects hundreds of times as much light as the naked eye. Details on planets and deep- sky objects will be visible even for inexperienced observers. Bright star clusters are resolved to the core, and the sight of the terminator on the moon is an unforgettable experience.
