Officina Stellare
Officina Stellare’s full line of Ritchey-Chrétien telescopes is now available to U.S. customers. Its new series of Pro RCs (Ritchey-Chrétien astrographs) offers three levels of options, allowing you to customize the telescope at the time of purchase. Each Pro RC features your choice of primary and secondary mirrors made with regular or low-expansion optical glass and protected aluminum coatings. A carbon-fiber truss-tube assembly with three fans behind the primary mirror aids in temperature regulation of the optics. A built-in two-element field flattener guarantees pinpoint stars across the field of today’s largest CCD cameras. Base models include two Losmandy-style removable dovetail mounting plates. Additional accessories are available at the time of order; see the website for details and a list of dealers.
