Baker-Ritchey-Chrétien Takahashi BRC-250

The BRC-250 was born thanks to the ordering of a Japanese public institution. Its optical concept, resulting from a professional environment, will please the amateurs looking for exceptional optics for deep sky imaging.
The Baker-Ritchey-Chrétien, large field and luminous version of the very appreciated Ritchey-Chrétien (usually designed with F/8 or F/9 focal ratios), is different by its fast F/5 focal ratio with the integration in its optical design of a 2-lenses field flattener (100mm of diameter).

The difficulties of surfacing of the optical elements of this design with hyperbolical primary and secondary mirrors make these instruments usually reserved for confidential users which one meets under the domes. The Takahashi firm, specialist in high-range optics, proves once more with this top-of-the-range telescope, its know-how which satisfies the amateurs.
