Officina Stellare is an Italian company with a proven background in the design and manufacturing of optomechanical instrumentation for professional applications.
The wide range of products includes optical payload for Earth imaging satellites, "turn key" astronomical research observatories, Space Situational Awareness and debris tracking solutions, aerospace and defense applications, astroimaging systems, CCD cameras and optical antennas (laser communications).
Headquarters are in Sarcedo (northern Italy), where we have R&D, optical and mechanical design, instrument integration, final quality control and metrology. The optical shop is in Occhiobello (about 100 km away), and has all the tools to design and manufacture optics up to 1 meter in diameter.
The "Italian touch" in quality, design, materials and care for the smallest detail... is always included in our products, as a gift to all our customers!
OFFICINA STELLARE: our name
In Italian OFFICINA STELLARE means “star workshop”, to indicate that we design and manufacture research and high-tech content products but at the same time we build them with the care, attention and passion that only a craftsman in a workshop can apply to his work.
OFFICINA STELLARE: our logo
The Officina Stellare logo has its roots in the origin of observational astronomy. The stylized star is a graphic evolution of the stars in the Pleiades, as drawn by Galileo in the "Sidereus Nuncius" (1610). Those drawings were the seed of countless discoveries in astronomy and science.
More on us
The Officina Stellare optical Lab in Occhiobello offers a complete service for design, manufacturing and test of mirrors, lenses and catadioptric systems, up to 1 meter in diameter.
Our precise quality control and metrology lab is based on modern interferometric and Shack/Hartmann instrumentation, with the support of high precision null lenses, reference spheres and flat mirrors, ultra-precise curvature radii measurement and precise, vibration insulated, optical benches.
In the main building, in Sarcedo, we perform all systems integration and final acceptance tests. In this new, large facility, we also have our mechanical shop and the optical & mechanical design divisions, both with modern computers and state-of-the-art software, some of which was developed by our specialists.
Should you visit us to discuss your next telescope, or to accept it, we will be happy to have you as a guest in one of our comfortable meeting rooms, all with broadband wi-fi and video conference hardware.
