Weighing in at Observatory-class, the 16 inch LX600 boasts features not available with the standard LX600 line:
Filtered Cooling Fan
To keep your telescope in thermal equilibrium the optical tube is equipped with a cooling fan as well as a ?ltered exhaust vent.
Professional-Grade Fork Mount With 11" Gears.
The massive 16" LX600 fork system, cast in one continuous piece from one declination housing to the other, includes a total of four 80mm roller bearings in declination (two in each housing) and two roller bearings in right ascension (one each of 100mm and 150mm bearings in the RA housing). Usage of these precision roller bearings in the telescope's design permits the addition of substantial auxiliary equipment without the risk of strain on the mount. Large DC-servo motor-driven 11" worm gears on both axes yield smooth, precision tracking and slewing required of a professional telescope.
The MAX Wedge was designed using advanced CAD analysis to assure both ease of adjustment and
rock solid stability using modern light weight alloys. Attractively ?nished, all standard ?eld installation and adjustments on the MAX Wedge can be performed with the included tools or using large, easily accessible ergonomic handles and knobs.
The MAX Tripod can be transported or permanently installed. It provides a wide stance to assure that it can safely carry the 16" LX600’s payload in all orientations, but still collapses down to a size that is easy to handle. It will even ?t in a single vehicle with the rest of your gear. The hinged feet are ? tted with built-in anti-vibration pads for the most stable viewing possible.
Available for shipment to the USA and Canada only.
