About the Meade 16" f/8 ACF Optical Tube Assembly...

Building on Meade's award-winning Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optics, their 16" ACF OTA employs a fast f/8 optical system with high-contrast baffling that insures crisp, pinpoint imaging to the very edge of the field.  An over-sized low-expansion primary mirror provides extra aperture and  prevents thermal expansion of the mirror. The diffraction-limited optics are protected and enhanced by Meade's Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC), which provide maximum brightness and contrast.   A primary mirror lock offers increased image stability.

The Meade 16" f/8 ACF Optical Tube Assembly features an internal zero image shift Crayford-style focusing system with a two-speed 7:1 reduction control that provides smooth, precise focusing at any magnification.  

The Meade 16" f/8 ACF Optical Tube Assembly includes precision machined Losmandy-style dovetail rail with wide-stance radius blocks for rock-steady mounting as well as rear dust covers.
