Rectilux collaboration for a x1.5 Scope

diehroptic.ch is collaborating with Rectilux

the dscope

We will bring a x1.5 Scope based on the Rathenower, targeting a wide horizontal FOV.

John does the glass and I do the housing & final fittings.

It comes bundled with the Core DNA and roughly look like the following picture.

Price target is 1.800€.


Preorder stage is closed.

  • based on the Prototype results, you are free to exit and I will return your payments. No questions asked.

Prototyping reached a stage where investments need to be made, which I need to have backed up by order entry. I take the risk of failure up to the point when the prototype is finished and published.
