We have already produced masks for the following telescopes :
Alcor-system can manufacture any mask size, for any other telescope size, provided the user gives all mechanical informations of the telescope entrance.
One of the hole is equipped with a set of tunable prisms, allowing to adjust the two image of the same star at a given distance, to fit as best the field of view of the camera. The angle adjustement is achieved by rotating one of the part. Here are the optical specifications :
Upon request, any mask size, for any telescope aperture and any hole size and prism diameter (up to Ø120mm) and beam deviation can be achieved by our company. Please do not hesitate to ask us.
