Kennedy is a experienced and gifted optician with over
20 years experience making aspheric optics. He is presently
concentrating on highly-corrected large aperture parabolic
mirrors (24" and 28") with f/ratios well below f4. Equatorial
Platforms is collaborating with Kennedy Optics in the
manufacture of large, low profile All-Aluminum Telescopes
with a choice of formats: 1) the SpicaEyes Telescope
System with integrated Aluminum Platform and 2) the
SpicaEyes Telescope System with our new SlipStream Drive.
has picture galleries and webcams about the scale
of the universe. Good for astronomy presentations.
Lockwood is an accomplished optician who specializes
in smooth, thin, accurately corrected mirrors. For visual
use, he produces custom mirrors from 16" to 60",
at f/2.8 and up. He tests and figures most of the elliptical
flats that are used with his primary mirrors.
The Skies on a Budget
company offers an excellent Dual Servo Telescope Controller
that is packed with features. Slip-clutched motor assemblies
allow you to move the scope by hand without first having
to de-clutch the drives, or you can move the scope with
the precision servo motors using a sophisticated wireless
hand pad that offers three different programmable speeds
-- slewing, centering and guiding. Equatorial Platforms
is using this new Telescope Controller from SiTech to
drive its new line of SpicaEyes All-Aluminum Telescopes
with SlipStream Drive.
