The Galileo Galileo G-160DB Dobsonian telescope combines a large aperture telescope and ease of use at an affordable price. The Altitude Azimuth Dobsonian base is so easy to use you will amaze yourself as well as friends and family the first night you use it. Plus, not only will the Galileo Dobsonian telescope produce beautiful astronomical images, it will also beautify your home. The telescope itself is finished in Galileo's handsome Black Granite with a matte black finish Dobsonian swivel base making it as beautiful as it is easy to use. The Galileo G-160DB optical tube assembly features a 1300mm focal length x 160mm diameter primary mirror and features a heavy duty mirror cell with push / pull collimation screws. The primary mirror is fully aluminized with 92% reflectivity and has a Silicon Monoxide Quartz overcoat which protects the coating. The 160mm diameter mirror provides a resolving power of .72 arc seconds. The secondary mirror has an obstruction of approximately 25% linear (approximately 6% of the total area). The optical tube assembly is diffraction limited at λ4 (1/4 wave in Sodium light). The focuser is a 2″ format metal helical rack and pinion focuser with a 2″ to 1¼″ adapter to enable the use of larger 2″ eyepieces. The finderscope is Galileo's Mars' Eye electronic Finderscope which helps by getting the observer behind the telescope without losing the surrounding field of view when targeting objects. Included with the G-160DB are a 1¼″ 25mm Astroscopic eyepiece, a 1¼″ 10mm Plössl eyepiece and a 3x 2-element Barlow lens. The 25mm is a 3 element, fully color corrected, modified Rank Kasspheric eyepiece with an apparent field of view of 52°. The 10mm Plössl eyepiece is a 4 element fully color corrected eyepiece with an apparent field of view of 52°.
