6inchf4_Newt-Orion Telescopes & Binoculars now offers a 6" f/4 Newtonian Astrograph Reflector Telescope ($399.99). This photographically fast Newtonian reflector is built around a 150-mm parabolic primary mirror manufactured from B270 glass that reaches thermal equilibrium quickly. An oversize 63-mm (minor axis) secondary provides excellent field illumination for larger DSLR or CCD cameras. A 2-inch, dual-speed linear-bearing Crayford focuser is designed to hold heavy imaging accessories without slippage, and its steel reinforcing plate viertually eliminates flexure. The scope weighs a total of 12.7 pounds and comes complete with tube rings, a Vixen-style dovetail mounting plate, and an 8x50 finderscope.
