"Within a temperature range of 10°C we see no measurable change in focus. Also, there was no change in focus as a function of telescope position."
- Michael Schwartz, Tenagra Observatories, 16" f3.75 Dream Astrograph owner.

Click on the photo to the left to see why this telescope does not need clamshell/mounting rings. A direct connection to the mount is superior because there is less chance for flexure and it gets the CG of the telescope closer to the mount.
