Founded 21 years ago, ACE specializes in custom telescopes, observatory retrofits, astronomical instrumentation and dome controls. The telescopes feature fully engineered friction drive high-speed mounts with carbon fiber truss tubes, focusing by moving the secondary with micron precision, automated mirror covers and a complete suite of instruments. Dual filter wheels, auto-guiders and spectrographs are all available. Our team of astronomers and systems engineers can create a new turn-key observatory, renovate an existing one, and provide custom solutions for your most demanding instrumentation. Based in Tucson, AZ, Astronomical Consultants & Equipment, Inc., creates designs using SolidWorks 3-D modelling and has a full in-house CNC machine shop to hold tolerances to the most exacting standards. We invite you to see our previous work and to join our list of prestigious customers, most of whom continue to purchase additional products and services. Our products can be found at major observatories word-wide and they are backed up by the best warranties in the industry. Our software fully integrates the telescope, instruments, detectors, environmental sensors and the dome. Designed for interactive and remote/robotic operation, the software features both C++ and Python scripting interfaces and is available under both Linux and Windows.
