ASA H400

Lightweight and compact, ideal for astronomical widefield imaging

Fast, high resolution wide field pictures of the night sky

This fact made the hyperbolic ASA telescope 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.
