The PlaneWave RC1000 is a fully automated 1-meter class telescope observatory system.
The PW1000-RC in its native format (no field flattening lenses) uses only mirror with reflective coatings. This can be useful when making observations primarily on-axis and wide field imaging is not a concern.
Das RC1000 is a complete telescope
Concerning the RC1000 we shall gladly provide a detailed offer for: f4.5 reducer, optional derotator-units for different instrument loads, heavy duty focusers suited to mount onto both sides of the fork arms depending on instr. load, tertiary mirror assembly to move the image into either side of the fork, remote dew heater units, remote controlled tube covers, light shrouds and tangent assemblies complement the instrument outfit
Benefits of Nasmyth Focus: The Nasmyth Focus is along the altitude axis so there are virtually no balancing issue as you change out equipment. Eyepieces remain at a constant wheelchair-accessible height, greatly simplifying access to the telescope for public observatories. The rotating tertiary mirror allows you to switch from one Nasmyth port to the other in just seconds, allowing observers to easily transition between imaging and visual use.
