Celestron RASA Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt 8" astrograph with SESTO SENSO: main features

Celestron RASA Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt 8" astrograph with Losmandy bar is the portable 203mm f2 astrograph that allows you to capture spectacular wide-field deep sky astrophotography images with short expositions. This incredibly fast f/2.0 system is the perfect companion to today’s color astronomical CMOS cameras, smaller CCD cameras, and mirrorless cameras. Thanks to its fast focal ratio and patented optical design, you can produce sharp, detailed images and, in many cases, skip the autoguider completely. Weighing in at just 7,7 kg, it’s easy to transport your 8” RASA to the most remote dark sky locations. Purely designed for imaging, the 8” RASA cannot be used visually. The prime focus focal plane is located at the front of the optical system, so it cannot accommodate a traditional eyepiece. 3 years of warranty on the optical tube!

  • Celestron RASA Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt 8" astrograph is a D:203mm F:400mm f/2 Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt 8" astrograph telescope
  • SESTO SENSO 2 is the best robotic focusing motor, great both for visual use and astrophotography

This special version of the Celestron RASA Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt 8" astrograph adds SESTO SENSO 2 - The highly accurate, advanced, vibration free, robotic focusing motor for your telescope! Connect it to the USB port of your EAGLE or Windows® computer to electronically control focus. If you don’t want to focus using a computer, you can connect wirelessly from any smartphone or tablet using the integrated Virtual HandPad via the built-in Wifi network in the SESTO SENSO 2! Thanks to the Self Centering Clamp technology (SCC), SESTO SENSO 2 can be installed without the need of external brackets. The supplied FOCUS Manager software and ASCOM driver allow easy configuration of the many advanced features of SESTO SENSO 2.

Built for Today’s Latest Cameras

Unlike the larger RASAs that work with DSLR and large CCD cameras, the 8” model was designed with color astronomical CMOS cameras, smaller CCD cameras, and mirrorless cameras in mind. The telescope does not work with standard DSLR cameras. It is optimized for sensors with up to a 22mm diagonal, but performs well with sensors up to 32mm diagonal. The micro 4/3 or APS-C sized sensors used in many mirrorless cameras are a good choice. FullFrame sensors will also work, but performance will be poor at the edges of the sensor and field illumination will be reduced. Additionally, we do not recommend pairing RASA 8 with any camera body more than 4” in diameter. See the chart below to determine if your camera is compatible with RASA 8.

Astronomical CMOS/CCD camera with C-mount Yes C-mount adapter (included)
