Product Description

iOptron 6" Ritchey-Chretien Telescope with CEM25P Equatorial Mount

The iOptron Ritchey-Chretien design telescopes consist of low thermal expansion quartz primary and secondary mirrors with 99% reflective coatings and the optical design virtually eliminates coma as well as spherical and chromatic aberration which is excellent for color and monochrome imaging.  The fixed primary mirror also eliminates shift due to focusing, commonly seen in other optical designs. The iOptron RC6 comes with a 2" dual-speed linear-bearing Crayford focuser. Three focuser extension rings are provided for a “flex-free” solid extension as a means to take up any unneeded back focus. The steel tube has knife edge baffles to reduce contrast reducing stray light making it a more ideal instrument for both imaging and visual observers alike. The RC6 model comes with a Vixen style dovetail plate.

  • Coma free, chromatic aberration-free, spherical aberration-free optics
  • 150mm (6") optical aperture
  • 1370mm focal length
