Text extracted from the Orion website:
Our largest reflector optimized for astrophotography boasts 10" parabolic primary optics with a very fast f/3.9 focal ratio for exceptional wide-field, deep-space imaging performance. Even faint galaxies and nebulas exhibit stunning detail with limited exposure time when photographed through this large-aperture astrograph with a CCD imager or DSLR camera. You’ll get incredibly bright, crisp images that will make apo refractor aficionados green with envy - and you’ll have more green in your wallet thanks to this telescope’s more-affordable Newtonian design.
Both the 10" (254mm) primary and secondary mirror feature enhanced reflectivity (94%) aluminization for bright, contrast-rich images. The 82mm minor axis secondary mirror provides excellent full-field illumination with modern CCD imagers and DSLR cameras, with less than 8% light drop-off at the edge of APS-C sized sensors. The adjustable 4-vane secondary mirror holder features very thin, 1mm thick spider vanes to minimize diffraction effects in images. A center mark on the primary mirror and three easy-grip collimation knobs make optical alignment easy and precise.
Extended tube length of 7.5" in front of the focuser blocks intrusion of off-axis light, ensuring optimum image contrast. The sturdy 2" dual-speed (11:1), low-profile Crayford focuser permits ultra-fine focus and has 38mm of drawtube travel and a helpful drawtube lock knob. A steel reinforcing plate bolted inside the 38.6" long tube directly under the focuser helps eliminate flexure between it and tube, even with heavy imaging gear attached.
As with any fast Newtonian, an optional coma corrector is recommended to achieve flat-field imaging performance. Standard accessories include two cast aluminum tube rings, a 9x50 finder scope, 2" and 1.25" extension adapters, and a 12V DC fan for accelerated primary mirror cool-down (fan requires 12V power supply or 8 AA batteries, not included).
Not only does this affordable astrograph excel as an astrophotography instrument, but the 10" f/3.9 Newtonian can also be used as a formidable visual telescope. Its large 10" aperture and fast focal ratio will provide wondrous views of deep space objects, the planets and Moon, and sparkling star fields in both 2" and 1.25" telescope eyepieces.
