Newtonian Reflector

This classic 300-year old Sir Isaac Newton design uses a large primary mirror at the bottom of the telescope tube, with a flat diagonal mirror at the top that brings the light out to the Newtonian focus at the side of the tube. Totally color-free, for excellent planetary observing. Offers more light-gathering aperture per dollar than any other telescope design, as well, for very good deep space performance.
