Availability: In stock


Manufactured by: AG Optical Systems


Imaging Dall Kirkham (iDK) astrographs are high resolution instruments with outstanding on and off axis performance across a 60mm field of view. By combining large aperture, medium focal ratio, corrected optics in a lightweight, stiff, and thermally stable carbon fiber tube AGO has created an instrument capable of capturing stunning images of our universe at the most aggressive pricing on the market.

An optional quartz upgrade is now available for all iDK telescopes.  Quartz' extremely low coefficient of thermal expansion allows the figure on the optics to remain stable while ambient temperatures vary.  This means you will spend more time imaging and less time waiting for the optics to stabilize.
