The Meade 16" f/8 optical tube is faster and sharper with the award winning ACF (Advanced Coma-Free) optical design. Exposure times are significantly shortened at only f/8. Crisp images from edge to edge are provided with a high contrast baffling. In addition to this crystal clear view, two speeds of control at a 10:1 ratio are enabled with an internal micro focuser. A primary mirror lock is included with the Meade 16" ACF OTA for increased image stability.

Included with this telescope optical tube assembly is a Losmandy-style dovetail rail that is precision machined and paired to the tube with wide-stance radius blocks delivering rock-steady observing.
