The small but powerful AG Optical Systems 10" F6.7 Imaging Dall Kirkham offers outstanding wide field performance in a package you can lift with one hand. The scope is a great match with medium capacity mounts such as the AstroPhysics Mach 1. At a weight of approximately 32 lbs (including the focuser), the premium AG Optical Systems 10" iDK is easy to handle and transport to the field.

We have one 10" iDK available and we have no additional production runs planned.
