The RC24 is a 24 inch (0.61 m) f/10.6 Ritchey-Chrétien (RC) Astrograph telescope. The instrument weight is 240 lbs (108.9 kg) and comes standard with a back plate retaining ring ready to accept the focuser of your choice.
The PW24-RC in its native format (no field flattening lenses) uses only a primary and secondary mirror with reflective coatings. This can be useful when making observations primarily on-axis and wide field imaging is not a concern.
PlaneWave's CDK astrographs have become the telescopes of choice for universities, industry, and astrophotographers around the world, and now PlaneWave offers the PW-RC series to meet the custom needs of the scientific community. More about the optical design.
