Product Details

  • Lightweight and Compact

    This product is ideal for astronomical wide-field imaging. Its fast, high-resolution wide-field pictures of the night sky made the hyperbolic ASA telescope the choice for the professional project Super Wasp II. This is a program searching for EXO-planets, which is supported by eight universities, including the Universities of Geneva, Leicester, Queens Belfast, Warwick, and the German Space Agency DLR at Berlin.

    Electronics

    Our closed-loop direct drive systems, sensor technology, and observatory safety modules play a major role in achieving optimum results. All moving accessory components are equipped with high-resolution encoders and closed-loop feedback systems. We provide event timer modules and customer updatable firmware.

    Optics

    Only the best for your telescope! We believe that the most important part of producing optics is testing. So ASA decided that we invest in the best test equipment available, remove any measuring error as good as possible and use real values in our specifications.
