ASA AZ1500 Ritchey-Chrétien Alt-Az telescope f6
An evolution milestone of high-end telescope systems with 1.5m aperture.
This complete solution also represents a fully integrated Alt-Az observatory system. The AZ1500 1.5m is equipped with quartz glass optics from ASA, which guarantee diffraction limited performance and best micro roughness numbers even under the most perfect earthbound astronomical seeing conditions while maintaining a fast f-ratio primary mirror design leading to less obstruction, higher contrast and a more compact system reducing the size and cost of your dome infrastructure.
1500mm f2/f6 Ritchey-Chrétien Nasmyth design with absolute encoder secondary mirror focusing unit, and configurable with up to 4 Nasmyth ports.
