iOptron 16" Photron Truss Tube Ritchey-Chretien Telescope - 6117
iOptron 16" Photron Truss Tube RC OTA
The iOptron Photron 16" Truss Tube RC telescope is perfect for astrophotographers looking to take their skills to next level. This Ritchey-Chretien telescope features high-quality optics, resulting in images that are sharp and clear from edge to edge. This truss tube OTA can be easily mounted to a variety of different mount combinations, making the iOptron Photron truss tube series a powerful, versatile OTA for imaging the planets as well as deep-space objects.
The RC optical design has been optimized for color and monochrome imaging, producing a clear image free of coma and spherical and chromatic aberrations. A fixed position primary mirror eliminates image shift that occurs when focusing from other telescope designs. With 1/12th wave or better primary mirror, our RC scopes deliver images and views that are out of this world.
iOptron's 16" Photron truss tube RC telescope includes low thermal expansion quartz primary and secondary mirrors. The mirrors are equipped with highly reflective dietetic coatings maximizing the light getting to your eyepiece or imaging device.
Each Photron truss tube instrument comes equipped with a dual-speed linear bearing Crayford focuser that can facilitate an optional ASCOM compliant electronic focus control. Three focuser 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. It's open air design results in rapid cooling, reducing the "wait time" before use. Photron by iOptron, RC truss tube telescopes are sure to meet or exceed even the most discriminating imager or observers expectations.
