ASA H400 f2.4

Lightweight and compact.

Ideal for astronomical widefield imaging and surveys. Fast f-ratio high resolution wide field data of the night sky. This makes the hyperbolic ASA astrograph the instrument of choice for the professional project Super Wasp II, a program searching for Exo-planets, which is supported by eight universities, including the Universities of Geneva, Leicester, Queens Belfast, Warwick and the German Space Agency DLR at Berlin, as well as the Gravitational-wave Optical Transient Observer project employing an array of H400 hyperbolic astrographs.
400mm f2.4 Hyperbolic Astrograph with 5” corrector and absolute encoder focusing unit.

RC & CDK Comparison

In our comparison, we compare our corrected RC to a CDK (corrected Dall-Kirkham):

1. The ASA RC primary mirrors are faster than a CDK and therefore the OTA is significantly shorter.
2. The CDK design requires a larger secondary for a given aperture (RC offers higher contrast).
3. ASA’s design is more versatile than the CDK where the corrective optics must be used.
