There was something missing! TI45 Astrograph f/4 Lens Group: simply optomechanics jewelery

Indeed there was something missing! Now a beautiful inscription on the metal tells us what we are talking about. We are a bit ‘late, but here we come!
We do not call them “correctors”! They are simply the “lens groups” that are part of the optical design. So… “Triplet ED Lens Group”. They are for the TI 45  Astrograph in f/4 […]

The first three TI45 astrograph f/4 correctors are ready!

The first three f/4 correctors are ready. They are 126 mm of optical diameter (about 5″) and have three elements, one of wich is an ED lens.
This high-end design corrector is the core of our new optical design and thanks to this the optical performances are so awesome (see Optical Performances).

The primary and secondary mirrors are ready too, and autocollimation […]
