Our Carbon Tube Ritchey-Chrétien
systems are suitable for use under the toughest conditions. Whenever mobile
application is required, daytime observation takes place or environmental
factors do not permit an open system, our Carbon Tube RC telescopes are
used. But in public observatories, it may be advantageous if the optical
mirrors are not openly accessible or disturbing thermal influence of visitors
should be minimized.
The carbon fibre tube with an expansion
coefficient close to zero is air conditioned at the back or on the side.
The front opening, when not in use, can is closed firmly and dust-free with a metal lid. Heavy CCD camera and
instruments can be screwed on to the rear panel. The carbon tube systems
are extremely stable so that even high swing speeds collimation and focus
remain stable. If you need the telescope for high speed panning, please
As with all our telescope systems,
the high-quality f/8,0 Ritchey-Chrétien optics comes from our own
production. If desired, other Cassegrain optics can be manufactured and
used. All accessories for the carbon truss series are also available in
the carbon tube systems. Available in 16, 18 and 20 inches.
Our Alluna Carbon Tube RC telescopes
are adapted and manufactured according to customer's requirements.
