Product Description

PlaneWave 12.5" CDK f/8 Carbon Fiber Optical Tube Assembly - Fused Silica

The CDK12.5 is an innovative solution for unsurpassed astroimaging quality at an affordable price. The CDK telescope design provides excellent imaging with large format CCD cameras while remaining superb for visual use. The Corrected Dall-Kirkham far exceeds the off-axis performance of most commercial telescope designs including the Ritchey-Chrétien design.

This no-compromise design is unique in making the optical alignment forgiving and collimation very easy. This guarantees the user the best possible performance from the telescope. The end result at the image plane of the CDK design is no off-axis coma, no off-axis astigmatism, perfectly flat field (no off-axis defocus). The CDK12.5 will give you pinpoint stars from the center to the corner of the field of view.
