iOptron Photron 150 Ritchey-Chretien Optical Tube

iOptron Photron™ telescopes feature a Ritchey-Chretien optical design that boasts primary and secondary mirrors with low thermal expansion quartz and 99% reflective dielectric coatings. This design enables coma free as well as spherical and chromatic aberration free results, making it optimally fit for both color and monochrome imaging. The primary mirror is fixed to prevent the image shift encountered with other telescope designs. This Photron RC6 comes with a linear-bearing ASCOM-compliant 2" dual-speed Crayford focuser and three focuser extension rings to allow "flex-free" solid extension as a way to eat up any unnecessary back focus. Equipped with an internal multiple knife-edge baffle system, the Photron RC6's steel optical tube enhances contrast by reducing stray light, improving the instrument for use both visually and photographically. A Vixen-style dovetail plate is included with the RC6 model.
