The OOUK Optimized Dall Kirkham Telescope is a solid 400mm aperture offering of the utmost quality, operating at F/6.8 and providing amazing imaging potential. It utilizes a space age carbon fiber sandwich sort of design for the actual optical tube. Much like other OOUK offerings, the entire ODK series avoids any cutting of corners or use of sub-optimal materials, instead opting towards the absolute finest possible in carbon fiber composition. Drawing on the same resources used to create space probes and shuttles, this telescope can boast close to absolutely zero flexure, and almost no thermal expansion. This results in a highly stable platform for your imaging or visual pursuits. Indeed, this telescope experiences minimal interference in the face of the natural elements, and even moreso, it boastsan extremely long lifespan due to this same high tech composition and design!

With a wide, stable flat field of over 52mm, this scope provides some of the most stunningly high quality optical performance on the open market at present. Ideally this scope would be mounted on a Paramount or similar high scale mounting system within a stationary observatory, due to its incredible size and mass- a size and mass that is required for this level of aperture and optical quality within the Dall Kirkham design. Please consult your sales technician when purchasing this scope to help you work out the best possible equipment accompaniment for your desired imaging performance.
