Atmospheric Dispersion Corrector

ASH has developed a high quality atmospheric dispersion corrector.

This sophisticated instrument will help to cope with atmospheric abberration which can negatively influence the quality of astronomical images. It eliminates color deviation caused by atmospheric distortion of the light rays. The ASH dispersion corrector will significantly improve the quality of (planetary) astronomical images.

This corrector contains two broadband antireflection coated wedge prisms, which can be rotated against each other. 

the principle of the ASH dispersion corrector


At 0° angle the effect is zero, and at 180° you have the maximum effect.
