Product Description

TPO 10" TRUSS TUBE F/7.9 RITCHEY CHRETIEN REFLECTING OTA TELESCOPE

The 10-inch F/8 Ritchey-Chretien Truss Tube OTA from TPO is an all-around  scope that is incredibly versatile, maximizing every bit of its aperture. The fixed position quartz primary mirror has no image shift and also removes the  task of collimating a scope's primary mirror, the carbon fiber truss tube design drastically reduces the  possible temperature shifts that is causing flexure, the design  itself has minimum thermal shifts.

The Ritchey-Chretien  has  no coma, chromatic aberration, or spherical aberration, and is an all-around improvement to the Cassegrain while keeping many of the same objectives. The TPO 10 inch F/8 RC then, is an astrograph capable of almost any imaging task.

Third Planet Optics (TPO) Ritchey Chretien telescope has 10 inches (254mm) of aperture and a focal length of 2032mm. With a concave hyperbolic primary and convex hyperbolic secondary that are made from low expansion quartz and finished with a scratch-resistant highly reflective 99% dielectric coating for great contrast. The primary mirror is fixed in place in a metal mirror cell, and the secondary is in a metal housing that can be collimated.
