In principle any good collimation tool can be used to collimate the ASA Astrograph. Our experience has shown, that the laser collimation tool from Howie Glatter in the US is one that works very easy and at the same time is very precise.
Aside its impressive loading capacity (instrument weight) of up to 300 kg, its guiding accuracy is second to none and can easily be compared to large, meter class modern telescope systems. Especially helpful in this regard was the expertise of Dipl. Phys. Phillip Keller, whose years of experience in the area of large telescope systems has helped innovate our products from the start!
Astrosysteme Austria sees its task in making the latest technologies of astrophotography available and affordable for the amateur. Uncompromising quality levels and suitability for the practical use are the centre of our attention. Hence, in the course of the last two years the basis of a product line was developed which claims the name reference class.
Astrophotography has experienced an unheard of quantum leap by the digital age of CCD-technology. These CCD-cameras as well as the new digital reflex cameras and also the versatile possibilities of picture processing make completely new demands on optics and mechanics.
Astrosysteme Austria has made it its objective to render exactly these components, optical devices, fully automatic mountings and tracking systems, applicable for the latest requirements in astrophotography. We are especially proud of our Astrographs with fast focal ratio and their wide corrected fields as well as the new mounts with direct drive.
