 Product Description

The Parks 10" Superior Nitelight Newtonian telescope is a result of years of design, engineering, refining and manufacturing expertise. The 10" Superior f/4 Nitelight features diffraction limited, full thickness optics; Parks fiberglass tube; precision bearings; stainless steel shafts and quality components throughout.

New state-of-the-art, low voltage 12 VDC clock drive/drive corrector runs anywhere in the world without changing the motors or circuitry. Using less than .5 amps at 12 volts, the dual-axis drive corrector can be selected to run at lunar, solar or sidereal rates. Declination motor, declination reversing switch, and dual-axis hand control unit are included.

Also new is a spring loaded, quick release, anti-backlash declination tangent system with manual and electronic slow-motion tracking capabilities. The worm and gear are both lapped to increase accuracy, and are individually matched. A spring-loaded worm gear assembly assures 100% interfacing of the gears for superior accuracy.
