Szymanek says he took some of his Flickr images with a GSO 10" Ritchey-Chrétien telescope.
At least one third party offers these with Altair Astro branding and says the tube is made of carbon fiber.
The Ritchey-Chrétien design is a Cassegrain with hyperbolic primary and secondary mirrors.
It minimizes coma and spherical aberration at the expense of field curvature.
The baffle tube forward of the hole in the primary is required to shade the image plane from direct skylight.
Many Cassegrain telescopes also have a short baffle tube aft of the secondary.
The multiple baffle rings inside the main tube just darken the tube more completely than black paint alone.
They are more likely separate rings than a continuous helix.
The alternative would be to roughen the surface e.g. with flocking paper.
The mount looks like an older Software Bisque Paramount, a robotic German equatorial mount.
On current models the declination axis housing is cylindrical rather than rectangular.
