The extension of evolution of high-end telescope systems with 2.5m aperture.
This complete solution represents a fully integrated alt-az observatory system. The AZ 2000, with ASA’s biggest mirror with 2.5m, is equipped with quartz optics from ASA. This guarantees diffraction-limited performance and best micro-roughness values even under the most perfect Earth-based astronomical seeing conditions. With fast focal ratio, the design results in less obstruction, higher contrast, and a more compact system. The size and cost of your dome infrastructure is reduced.
