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!
