Details

Optical tube: PlaneWave RC20 f/6.8 Ritchey-Chrétien with fused silica optics

PlaneWave Instruments is pleased to offer the RC20, a 20 inch (508mm) telescope with Ritchey-Chrétien optics. PlaneWave's CDK astrographs have become the telescopes of choice for universities, industry, and astrophotographers around the world, and now PlaneWave offers the RC series to meet the custom needs of the scientific community. The RC20 in its native format (no field flattening lenses) uses only a primary and secondary mirror with reflective coatings. This can be useful when making observations primarily on-axis and wide field imaging is not a concern.

Mount: PlaneWave L-500 Direct Drive mount

The L-Series combines versatility, simplicity and affordability by combining all the technology of observatory class telescopes into a compact stand-alone mount. In its Alt/Az configuration it is considerably more compact than its equatorial counterpart, allowing a larger telescope to fit in a smaller enclosure. Unlike German Equatorial mounts, there are no meridian flips to deal with, and no large protruding counterweights to create a dangerous hazard in a public observatory. Alt/Az is more intuitive to use and no polar alignment is needed. Besides, it is the way the pros do it!
