Founded in 2006 by former Celestron engineers Richard Hedrick and Joseph Haberman, our company provides customers with the finest equipment, following the most exacting standards and innovative design practices. All of our products—whether for backyard viewing or exploring the heavens at the observatory level—are created with the same attention to detail and functionality that has come to be a PlaneWave hallmark.

PlaneWave is an industry trendsetter, developing the revolutionary Corrected Dall-Kirkham (CDK) telescope optical system. This apparatus, which works with large-format CCD/sCMOS cameras to capture sharp, detailed images of the sky, is also a great tool for visual observation.
