GSO 8” f/8 Ritchey-Chretien Carbon Fiber OTA
As amateur astronomers advance in their astro-imaging skills, they dream of owning a Ritchey-Chretien telescope. RC telescopes are being used in some of the world’s biggest and best observatories due to their color-free, coma-free, spherical aberration-free optics. The problem is, Ritchey-Chretien telescopes are out of the reach of most people due to their high price tag…until now!
Guan Sheng Optical of Taiwan has been creating affordable imaging telescopes for several years. After the huge success of their imaging Newtonians, they turned their attention to creating a high quality Ritchey-Chretien at a more reasonable price. Now serious astro-imagers can choose from closed tube or open tube RC telescopes in a wide range of apertures!
