iOptron Photron 200 Ritchey-Chretien Optical Tube

With low thermal expansion quartz primary and secondary mirrors featuring dielectric coatings with 99% reflectivity, iOptron Photron™ Ritchey-Chretien designed telescopes are the optimal instrument for color as well as monochrome imaging. Results generated from RC telescopes are void of coma, spherical aberration, and chromatic aberration. In order to improve contrast, the Photron RC8's steel optical tube contains 10 knife-edge baffles that diminish the effect of stray light. Any unneeded back focus is eliminated by three included extension rings for a "flex-free" solid extension. The Photron 200 also comes with a linear-bearing dual-speed Crayford focuser and two dovetail plates that enable mount and accessory attachment while providing additional strength.
