Using Dream's zeroDELTA lightweight mirrors and extensive CFSC structures

These high-quality, robust and lightweight instruments are designed from the ground up for remote & robotic use, as well as the lowest possible maintenance & cleaning schedule. They are athermal and exhibit industry-leading stiffness and focal plane performance due to the number of technologies packed in each unit.

They are ideal for slewing to a satellite quickly, tracking it consistently with no settle time required, then slewing to the next. Over and over again. The telescopes offer the same high performance day after day, season after season and year after year.

No other company in the world has Dream's technologies or can offer this level of long-term performance.

"Your company does phenomenal work. There is a lot of thought and heart that goes into your products. Dream's engineering sets their lightweight mirrors apart from competitors. Your engineering goes beyond the lightweight aspect. You focus on actual performance!"

- Ted Kamprath: 39 years in professional optics, using everything from million dollar test rooms to 144" Continuous Polishers.
