Last week, Optiques Fullum Inc. travelled to New Jersey to install and deliver a modified Fullum-Folded Newtonian Telescope with a 50” primary mirror, a focal ratio of 3.5 and a fully motorized guiding system. For this primary mirror in fused borosilicate, Optiques Fullum used it’s unique Techno-Fusion® technique.
“The unique fusing process we are using in our Techno-Fusion® mirrors, allows us to supply very light mirrors with increased rigidity and at an affordable price. Through its open central structure and adequate ventilation, our mirrors reach their thermal balance within 20 minutes and will remain stable during the entire observation session” explains Normand Fullum, president of Optiques Fullum inc. “The delivery of this telescope represents another important benchmark in the establishment of our company as one of the most reputable manufacturers of this type of equipment” continues Fullum.
