This telescope includes a 5.75" (minor axis) cellular secondary mirror that offers 100% illumination of 37mm x 37mm CCD chips. These cellular mirrors were designed in-house. A monolithic 5.5" secondary weighs 3.7 lbs. The 5.75" cellular weighs ~1.4 lbs. It is the "little brother" of the 7.75" cellular secondary, used on the 24" f3.5 Dream Astrograph.

All of these primaries will be premarked with a centered Catseye (center hole) triangle. To learn more about the 3" custom Catseye tools that have been developed specifically for these Dream Astrographs, click on the image to the left.
