ASA UWF300 f1.3 + DDM100 + wedge
One of the fastest telescopes of the world!
The UWF300_1 package combines the highly-corrected 300mm f1.3 UWF OTA with our outstanding DDM100 mount. This groundbreaking optical design is ideal for short exposure, high SNR wide field surveys.
The main mirror works with absolute encoder feedback and can be collimated fully electronic for an easy and fast remote collimation.
The DDM100 direct-drive mount is a precision platform ready for fully automated imaging.

The UWF300 uses a prime focus configuration. The main mirror is a high order asphere and in the prime focus we use a 5 Lens corrector to correct any field aberrations in a wavelength range from 400nm to 700nm.
With the ultra short focal length and wide field it is the ideal telescope for fast sky surveys searching for brighter objects. The resolution with modern small pixel CMOS is nevertheless surprisingly high even with such a short focal length. It can also be arranged in arrays on our DDM mounts.
Our closed loop direct drive systems, sensor technology and observatory safety modules play a major role in achieving optimum results. All moving accessory components are equipped with high-resolution encoders and closed-loop feedback systems. We provide event timer modules, and customer updatable firmware.
