Imaging Harmer Wynne (iHW) astrographs are
exceptionally compact, high resolution, fast focal ratio instruments
with excellent on and off axis performance. By combining large
aperture, a blazing fast focal ratio, corrected optics in a lightweight,
stiff, and thermally stable carbon fiber tube AG Optical Systems has
created a compact instrument
capable of conducting serious scientific work (such as sky surveys)
or capturing wide field images of deep space objects.
All AG Optical Systems iHW astrographs are designed to provide razor
sharp images across a large field of view in a compact optical tube
assembly. The integral three element corrector eliminates coma
and astigmatism while providing small RMS spot sizes (4 to 9 micron
diameter, or 2 to 4.5 micron radius) over a 60mm diameter FOV.
When matched with an Optec Gemini rotating focuser
(included as standard) and a rock solid, thermally stable carbon fiber
truss tube, the AG Optical Systems iHW will meet your demanding

We encourage you to compare our product directly to the
competition's... do they use Quartz optics? Does their pricing
include a premium quality rotating focuser? What is their reputation
for customer service? You will quickly see that there is
no competition. Please call AG Optical Systems to learn more.
