  1. Officina Stellare: The Officina Stellare Veloce RH 200AT is an extremely fast, wide field Riccardi-Honders Astrograph with a research-grade full athermal assembly for amazing thermal stability.

    • Innovative, Officina Stellare exclusive, primary Mangin mirror optical design by Massimo Riccardi.
    • The Officina Stellare Veloce RH 200AT has 200 mm of clear aperture, and an incredible ultra fast, wide field, F/3 focal ratio with 600mm focal length.
    • Large front full aperture corrector lens and near zero expansion, BK7 optical glass primary and secondary mirror..
    • The Officina Stellare Veloce RH 200AT includes the upgraded OTA assembly, carbon-fiber dew shield, a losmandy dovetail plate with tip/tilt adjustment, and a flat plate on top for mounting accessories.

    The Officina Stellare Veloce RH 200AT Riccardi-Honders Astrograph is a premier, innovative, Officina Stellare exclusive! Just check out the primary Mangin mirror optical design, large front full aperture corrector lens and near zero expansion BK7 optical glass for the primary and secondary mirror. It even has two spaced elements for the rear group. We're talking about 200 mm of clear aperture, and an incredible ultra fast, wide field with an F/3 focal ratio and 600mm focal length. Add to that a flat 60 mm diameter field, with 6 micron maximum star spot size. 

    • The "AT" model of the Veloce RH 200 has an upgraded full athermal assembly for research-grade applications. Because of the improved thermal stability, the RH 200AT will require less focus adjustments due to temperature changes during the night. The retractable light shield is made of carbon fiber to complement the look and functionality of this superb telescope. 
    • Great care is taken in the making of the rear holding cell of the primary mirror. The entire rear cell for the primary mirror is figured to have the best rigidity/weight ratio and for the fastest possible thermal stabilization between the environment and mirror. 
    • Great attention has been applied to simplify the collimation between the mirrors resulting in a stable, efficient but easy to use system. The collimation is accomplished by acting on just three points (the minimum required points to generate a single plane) using a special, great diameter preloaded bolts (one for each point). This results in a single hand use, simply turn the bolt left or right to move the mirror back and forth (no more complicated operations using push pull screws and locks) in a very intuitive way. Finding the correct positions is a snap. The mirror borders uses an opaque, circular mask to avoid any undesired light scattering. The light shields for the primary and secondary mirrors are computer designed and optimized to ensure complete illumination of the field still maintaining a complete protection from stray light. Inside the light shields there are also micro baffles that reduces, coupled with an opaque painting of the surfaces, to nearly zero any possible parasite stray light. In some cases and for particular applications, the light shield for the secondary mirror is made using a special layout that maintain the efficiency of the system while reducing the obstruction for the system. The back plate of our telescopes comes standard with a system for adjusting the planarity of the focal plane in order to compensate for any small misalignment in the imaging train, always unwanted and annoying especially on today’s large CCD cameras.

  3. Officina Stellare: The RHVeloce is a really unique design, and uses several unique solutions, created by Riccardi and Honders (from this the "RH" in the name). The RH Veloce uses a double front lens that is weakly convergent, and the primary mirror is a "Mangin" mirror (from the name of its French inventor). A Mangin mirror is a mirror that is coated on the back surface, not on the front. The light passes through the glass, is reflected by the coating and then passes again through the glass. For this reason, a Mangin mirror is called a refractive-reflective optical element, and opens exciting possibilities to optical engineers. This complex design includes also a corrector group before the focal plane, achieving performances impossible otherwise, with extraordinary "fast" photographic performances over wide focal planes.

    A curiosity about the RH Veloce: since the double frontal lens is convergent, the Mangin mirror is smaller than the "nominal" diameter of the scope, while the meniscus itself is bigger than the nominal diameter, to ensure a good illumination over the wide field of view of such scopes. For example, the 200 mm model has a 220 mm meniscus and a 190 mm primary mirror. The secondary mirror is a separated piece of glass, or it is made coating the middle of the meniscus, depending on model.

    For this reason, we talk about "entry pupil" and not "primary mirror diameter", for this instruments.

    The original RH Veloce series was only three models (200, 300, 350mm). The 250 model was designed for a specific application, but we were so happy about it to put it in production. It is f/5.6, not f/3.

    The RH Veloce frontal lens is the only piece of optic in our production that we outsource. It is made in Germany under Officina Stellare specifications.

    The central obstruction is about 50%, but still smaller than similar designs, that simply can't compete under any point of view. The visual contrast is very good, thanks also to the special ultra-dark paints we use.

    The corrector group is very close to the focal plane, so chromatic aberration is undetectable.

  41. Officina Stellare:

    • The Officina Stellare 3” Off-Axis Guider is built tough for no flexure, and is thin to take up very little back focus.
    • This OAG comes with a 1.25” precision helical focuser at the guiding port.
    • Puts your guiding in front of filter wheels for unfiltered, brighter results.

      The Officina Stellare 3” Off-Axis Guider is thin and solid for rock solid performance with today’s larger CCD cameras. This manual off-axis guider allows you to guide from your primary telescope with the same unfiltered light detected by your camera’s sensor. Because you are guiding in front of your filter wheel, you will be able to see more stars.

      The Officina Stellare 3” Off-Axis Guider comes with a Borg 7315 1.25” helical focuser installed at the guiding port. This non-rotating lightweight focuser has 50 micron index marks on the outside of the barrel, and offers 10mm of travel. It comes with the Borg 7317 1.25” eyepiece holder.

    • A Takahashi Collimating Telescope (TCE0100) & adapter
    • A hard case with instructions
    • The collimation procedure is simple, fast and accurate. Simply put the assembled collimation kit in the back of the telescope and, using the sliding part of the Takahashi Collimation Scope, align the dot in the Tak scope with the dot present on the secondary mirror. Then, simply unscrew the light baffle of the primary mirror and, sliding the scope tube, focus on the 4 blades holding the secondary mirror. At this point you will see the blades and their reflections on the primary mirror. Using the collimation bolts on the back of the telescope, make adjustments until the four blades superimpose themselves perfectly on their reflection on the primary mirror. Once this is done, you are finished collimating! The whole operation takes about ten minutes.
