Who we are and what we do

We are a company based in Berlin, Germany, which designs and builds high-end telescopes for land and satellite based applications.

We principally develop Ritchey-Chrétien and other types of Cassegrain reflectors. Our instruments are equipped with the finest optics available and are built entirely in Carbon Fiber and grade 5 Titanium. This ensures an excellent shape conservation, zero thermal expansion and unmatched lightness. 

Our mission is to produce perfect and unique pieces of engineering. Here in Ivrea we take our time in doing what we do, but to achieve perfection we do not, and never will, take any shortcuts.
