16 Inch Telescopes

OPT offers a variety of 16 inch telescopes for those who want to maximize their aperture and light-gathering power. Although a 16" telescope is twice the size of an 8" telescope, it has four times the light gathering power. When compared to a 4" telescope, a 16" aperture has 16 times the light gathering power. 

Details on the Moon, planets, and deep sky objects will be visible even for inexperienced observers. Faint nebulae and galaxies now become visible through these telescopes. Whether you are a visual astronomer or an astrophotographer, a 16" telescope will never fail to impress!
