We are proud to introduce the new RiFAST300. Compared to itís processor, the new 2018 version has a closed carbon tube, a simpler mechanic, has lost 6Kgs from the previous truss version, and incorporates a new tip tilt with a mechanical zero position.

The scope is a native f/3.8 with a flat field up to 60mm. Interestingly the scope has the possibility to use a dedicated 0.78x reducer (XTFR078) and 1.5x extender (XTFE15-300). So the instrument can be used from f/3 through f/5.7 with a corrected field of 42mm with both accessories. It can be 3 instruments in 1!

RiFAST300 is an universal astrograph. It will follow every need, through seasons and different deep sky objects. No other instrument on the market, in the 300mm class, can do that. You donít have to buy more/different instruments to cover diverse deep sky objects across the yearís astrophotography seasons. Simply get your RiFAST300 equipped with optional reducer/extender and have more fun, while saving money!

RiFAST300 is the first versatile astrograph to follow your needs and save your money: stop buying several different OTAís! Extreme lightweight, only 20 Kgs, itís still extreme portable under every dark sky. As with other Officina Stellare Astrographs, it shares the same sturdy mechanic, optimized for 300mm size. Optics are completely made in our facility to keep complete control of the production process which is the only way to provide highest quality to our customers.

Optional XTFR078 0.78x reducer and XTFE15-300 extender are completely designed by our Master Optician Massimo Riccardi, guaranteeing highest performance available for your images.

No other instrument in the market has the same flexibility maintaining the highest optical quality available on the market. 3 instruments is 1, with the same great optical and mechanical quality provided by Officina Stellare.

RiFAST is an optical scheme proprietary of Officina Stellare, designed by Massimo Riccardi. Itís an optical design devoted to astrophotography, in a new revolutionary way. The 3 elements flattener is placed near focus position, to avoid any chromatic aberration. RiFAST is a precise design to make astrophotography smarter.
