Product Details

32 inch (81cm) F8 Ritchey-Chrétien met carbon Truss buis van RC Optical Systems. Amateurs go PRO!

Niet voor niets kiezen topfotografen als Russel Croman, Tony Hallas en Robert Gendler voor RCOS Ritchey-Chrétien telescopen.

A Ritchey-Chrétien is a specialized Cassegrain reflector utilizing true hyperbolic surfaces. All reflectors typically have an aberration called coma - all except for the Ritchey-Chrétien. The hyperbolic mirrors of the Ritchey-Chrétien make this design coma free, which results in a much smaller spot size. This is the #1 reason why nearly all professional observatories have chosen the Ritchey-Chrétien design.

Since Ritchey-Chrétien optics are two mirror optical systems, they have no Spectral Dispersion or Chromatic Aberration. Chromatic Aberrations are common in Catadioptric Systems and caused by their refractive element known as a "corrector plate". See diagrams of Chromatic Aberration on and off axis in a Catadioptric system.

In addition to being coma free and chromatic free, a true Ritchey-Chrétien offers:

  • Only two surfaces for less light loss - Catadioptric type optics have 4 surfaces (two are glass!) . Some APO's have 6 surfaces. Each surface degrades the amount of light getting to the focal point.
  • No refractive elements - Glass scatters light, especially in IR where CCD cameras are most sensitive. A Ritchey-Chrétien has no refractive elements, such as a corrector plate.
  • Flatter Field - The lower the amplification factor of the secondary mirror, the flatter the field. For example, the RC has a 2.7x secondary, whereas, a Schmidt-Cassegrain has a 5x secondary. The RC has a much flatter field!
  • Smaller Spot Size on and off axis. Examine this spot diagram to see the difference!

For these reasons, the Ritchey-Chrétien is ideal for medium to large format CCD or film photography, where a large aberration-free field of view is required. It is also a superb visual instrument.
