AG Optical Systems Specials

Quartz optics and optical quality test reports are now standard on all AG Optical Systems telescopes

All AG Optical Imaging Dall Kirkham and Imaging Harmer Wynne telescopes are supplied with optical quality test results indicating the Strehl and RMS performance of the optical system.  Data for each system is obtained using a rigorous double pass interferometry test configuration.

Contact AG Optical Systems to learn more.
