Product Description

iOptron - Photron 14" f/8 RC Ritchey Chretien Truss Tube Telescope

iOptron Photron RC telescopes were designed for astrophotographers in search of high quality telescopes that can provide images with edge to edge clarity without breaking the bank.  These f/8 truss tube Ritchey-Chretien telescopes combine premium low thermal expansion quartz primary and secondary mirrors with highly reflective dielectric coatings, enhancing and maximizing light and delivering crisp and brilliant images for both observing and imaging.  iOptron's RC mirrors are 1/12th wave or better for incredible results. 

RC optical design is coma free and free from spherical or chromatic aberrations making it an ideal choice for astrophotography.  A fixed postion primary mirror eliminates image shift for reliable focusing.   Every Photron RC telescope is equipped with a dual speed Crayford focuser which can optionally be equipped with ASCOM control.   Three extension rings are included for a solid extension that won't flex with heavy equipment.    The trusses are lightweight carbon fiber and provide a strong and stable support to the mirrors.  The open air truss design means the telescope is rapid cooling which dramatically lowers wait time to start your imaging sessions.  

Includes: dual speed Crayford focuser, 2"-1.25" adapter, two 1" extension, one 2" focus extension, primary and secondary mirror covers to keep your telescope clean and a battery holder for the cooling fans. 

The back focus of the 14” TPO RC is 288mm from the rear M117x1 thread.  This is 11.34”.  The manufacturer includes one 50mm threaded spacer and 2x 25mm threaded spacers that go between the back flange and the focuser if the user needs to adjust that down for a simple image train.
