The LightBridge 16"/406.4mm Dobsonian Telescope from Meade is a Dobsonian design that gathers lots
of light in a package that is supremely portable. Dobsonians are
Newtonian-type reflector telescopes with ground-based roller bearing
mounts, and the best of the breed have trusses connecting the portions
containing the reflecting mirror & focuser. The 16.0" Lightbridge
does just that, so that you could quite easily pack the entire system
into the trunk of a small car and drive to where skies and sightlines
are the darkest & longest.
The 16.0" Lightbridge advantages
don't stop with its highly travelable design. Optics are truly
diffraction limited, with aluminum coatings and a magnesium fluoride
overcoat. The broad 2.00" focuser has a tensioning knob and lock
designed to give you complete control. And the 16.0" Lightbridge is
highly durable, making the ultimate scope for those whom desire great
brightness on the go.
This is the Deluxe version of the 16" Lightbridge telescope, which adds 4 options (with variable illumination) for the Red Dot finder scope and steel roller bearings for the mount's RA axis.
