Want a 1.5 x 1.5 degree field of view in a premium 14" F3.8 astrograph with hand-figured, matched QUARTZ optics and an Optec Gemini rotating focuser?

AG Optical Systems Imaging Harmer Wynne astrographs are designed to provide razor sharp images across a large field of view in a compact optical tube assembly at a blazing fast F3.85 focal ratio. The integral three element corrector eliminates coma and astigmatism while providing small RMS spot sizes (4 to 9 micron diameter, or 2 to 4.5 micron radius) over a 52 mm diameter FOV.

- Precision QUARTZ optics figured and quality tested as a system by master opticians (Mike Lockwood, Terry Ostahowski)
- Blazing fast F3.85 system designed and baffled for big chip CCD cameras
- 8" of back focus to support almost any combination of imaging components (approx. 5" with Optec Gemini in place)
- Excellent coma free, astigmatism free, flat field performance over 52 mm image circle

- Quartz primary and secondary mirror with 96% reflectivity coatings
- robust Optec Gemini rotating focuser with PC cable and power supply
- Compact, thermally stable carbon fiber composite truss tube with light stops and heavy flocking paper to suppress stray light, shroud included
- Primary mirror cooling fans
- Heavy duty dovetail plate (Losmandy D compatible)

Optional Thermal Control System for automated control of cooling fans, primary and secondary anti-dew heaters
