WHO WE ARE
PrimaLuceLab is an innovative enterprise (iSRL) that designs, manufactures and works with companies all around the World to create instruments for the astronomy and radio astronomy providing solutions to address the study of these sciences in a more simple way. Made up of amateur astronomers with many years of experience and deep technical knowledge of instrumentation, PrimaLuceLab is dedicated to those who want to discover the universe with instruments that only a few years ago, were accessible only to professionals. The techniques used are not always easy: that's why PrimaLuceLab, combining scientific expertise and production capabilities, develops new systems that, thanks to compatibility between different components, allows you to explore the Universe with fewer complications and guarantee of results.
OUR WORK IS OUR PASSION
Astronomy is a fascinating science that can also offer great satisfaction to the amateur: PrimaLuceLab not only offers products that allow you to get real results, but also its passion for the Universe with the best technical service. So you can enjoy watching, taking pictures or carry out your research of the sky with satisfaction.
In the field of astronomy, PrimaLuceLab develops instruments dedicated mainly to astrophotography offering to amateur astronomers the best innovations and the results of its own experiences.
