16" Dream Astrograph - featuring Dream's Filtered Air System Technology (FAST)

The profile design of this tube, with two flat sides, was chosen to allow dovetail plates to mount to these sections of the instrument tube. This eliminates the need for large diameter, heavy mounting rings. Mounting rings often allow flexure, which will decrease a system's performance.

Because of the two flats sides of the tube, a dovetail plate on both sides can be used to fit between the forks of a Fork Equatorial or Fork Alt/Az mount. It also allows us to utilize our Dream PDF focuser, which attaches with a wide footprint (spreading out heavy imaging train loads) and simultaneously offers push/pull collimation. It does this without the need for adaptors below the focuser.

The telescope attaches to the mount using Dream's 20.0" x 7.0" x 0.815" dovetail plate.
