PlaneWave Instruments is pleased to offer the PW20-RC, a 20 inch (0.51 m) telescope with Ritchey-Chrétien optics. PlaneWave's CDK astrographs have become the telescopes of choice for universities, industry, and astrophotographers around the world, and now PlaneWave offers the PW-RC series to meet the custom needs of the scientific community.

In certain applications such as photometry and spectroscopy, refractive lenses could influence scientific results. The PW20-RC in its native format (no field flattening lenses) uses only a primary and secondary mirror with reflective coatings. This can be useful when making observations primarily on-axis and wide field imaging is not a concern. Use the table below as a guide for choosing the right optical design for different applications:
