JTW Astronomy Dall Kirkham 250mm f5.5

The Enhanced Corrected Dall-Kirkham (ECDK) telescope is our workhorse. This is the most economical route to a high performance telescope, often the performance of an RC is not needed, ECDKs are easier to manufacture and therefore are very cost effective. The tube assembly is semi-ruggedised and is of fail-safe construction.

The mirror supports in instruments under 600 mm are high precision floatation cells with full edge supports, larger mirrors are supported with kinematic face and edge supports. The focuser is included as standard, this is achieved by moving the secondary mirror. The ECDK includes a 2 element corrector with optional 3-element system and integrated ADC.
