Astronomy reflectors come in many sizes

Astronomy Products – Ritchey-Chretien Cassegrain reflectors are the preferred professional telescope that amateur astronomers often avoid due to the financial investment required for this kind of time-machine-to-the-stars. Astronomy Technologies has re-written the history books and broken the price barrier on professional grade Ritchey-Chretien Cassegrain reflectors this year, with three new affordable Ritchey-Chretien telescopes, perfect for the amateur astronomer or young adventurer heading out on a “Journey to the Beginning of Space and Time”. The 10-inch f/8 AT10RC is a superb photographic telescope, with premium features like quartz mirrors, a dual-speed Crayford-style focuser, dielectric mirror coatings, two dovetail mounting rails, and three built-in cooling fans.

Astronomy equipment you need

Astronomy Products – Space travellers are always on the go and being able to quickly move from spot to spot can be the difference between the great view and the one the rest of your astronomy buddies are talking about seeing. For the star traveller on a “Journey to the Beginning of Space and Time” constantly on the move, Astronomy Technologies Voyager alt-azimuth mount is the perfect base for your time machine to the stars. All you need to do is place your telescope’s Vixen-style dovetail bar in the Voyager’s matching cradle on the altitude axis, tighten the thumbscrews provided, and your time machine to the stars is ready to blast off on your “Journey to the Beginning of Space and Time”. The axes of the Voyager are engineered and designed to smoothly move in all directions, with telescopes weighing up to 20 pounds (9.1 kilograms) mounted into place. Adjustable slip clutches enable you to point your time machine to the stars to any region of time and space in the night sky you select for your Journey to the Beginning of Space and Time, and then manually track a celestial object using dual slow-motion controls.
