Product details


Have you dreamed of owning a really big "light bucket" Dobsonian?  I remember the first time I saw the Horsehead Nebula through a big Dob, and I have dreamed of owning one ever since!  If you feel the same way, take a look at this 16" f/4.5 Dob from StarField!  Just like most 16" Dobsonians, the StarField model is a truss tube design.  That's good, because when you break down the telescope, the individual pieces can fit in most standard vehicles.  The biggest component is the Dobsonian base, followed by the two solid optical tube components and the truss tubes.  Have giant telescope, will travel!

The 16" diffraction-limited primary mirror is coated with enhanced aluminum that has a 94% reflectivity rating.  StarField Optics states that their Dobsonian mirrors are 1/12 wave, which will produce absolutely beautiful results.  

The Starfield 16" Dob has a focal length of 1800 mm and a focal ratio of f/4.5.  The 2" Crayford-style focuser comes with dual speed 10:1 micro focus as well as coarse focus.  A 35 mm extension tube is included, as is a 2" to 1.25" compression ring adapter so you can use both 1.25" and 2" eyepieces.  Speaking of eyepieces, the StarField 16" Dobsonian comes with two of them...a 2" 30mm Superview and a 9 mm 1.25" Super Plossl.  You will also receive a straight-through 8x50 optical finder scope to help you locate and center celestial objects.
