Product Details

  • This iOptron Photron 16-Inch f/8 Truss RC telescope with dual speed Crawford focuser is by Special Order Only.

    The body length is 1114 mm with a weight of 84-pounds.

    One in the Photron line of Ritchey-Cretien astrograph telescope models. Designed for today's astroimager, Photron truss tube RC telescopes deliver a sharp clear image from one  edge to the other. The truss tube is designed to carry on iOptron's reputation for creating and manufacturing solid, stable, accurate tracking, mounts, in a high-quality RC astrograph telescope.

    It features low thermal expansion quartz primary and secondary mirrors with highly reflective dielectric coatings maximizing the light getting to your eyepiece or imaging device. The RC optical design delivers coma, spherical, and chromatic aberration free results; perfect for coma and monochrome imaging. A fixed position primary mirror eliminates image shift that occurs when focusing other telescope designs. With a 1/12th wave or better primary mirror their RC telescopes deliver images and views that are out of this world!

    Each Photron truss tube instrument comes equipped with a dual speed linear bearing Crayford focuser that can facilitate iOptron's optional ASCOM compliant electronic focus control. three extension rings are provided for a "flex-free" solid extension as a means to take up any unneeded back focus. Its backbone, made up of strong, light, carbon fiber truss supports hold the optics firmly in place while keeping weight to a minimum. Its open air design results in rapid cooling, reducing the "wait-time" before use. Photron RC truss tube telescopes are sure to meet or exceed even the most discriminating imager or observers' expectations.
