The Opticstar ARX200 Astrograph is a wide field imaging instrument that been designed for the
purpose of astro-imaging and astrometry.
It can be used in conjunction with a camera to capture images of the same section of the sky over
days or weeks apart for the purpose of discovering ‘new’ objects including novae, variable stars,
asteroids, meteors and comets. Image data can then be compared to reveal changes in brightness,
movement or new objects that have entered our Solar system.
The ARX200 optical tube is made of strong Carbon Fibre. Carbon fibre is a light-weight material that
offers exceptional thermal stability when compared to metal.
