|Description:||Caution: Objects viewed with this instrument are farther away than they appear. MUCH, MUCH farther away! They just look so vivid and close because the Atlas 10's mighty 10" optics pull in photons by the bucketful. And with its brawny Atlas equatorial mount with built-in dual drives, this formidable package takes deep-sky observing to a whole new level.|
The parabolic primary mirror is precision figured from Pyrex low-expansion glass and housed in a high-ventilation aluminum cell designed by Orion. The tube is outfitted with a 2" collimatable focuser (with 1.25" adapter) and a 9x50 finder scope. And there's no shrugging at the beefy Atlas mount. It features integrated RA and Dec drives and 2"-diameter steel tube legs.
For the serious astronomy enthusiast seeking large-aperture resolving power and superior equatorial control, this space-penetrating powerhouse can be yours -- for a surprisingly low price, considering how much scope you get!
