Rouz, founder of Rouz Astro, started the journey with photography in the late 90’s, before the age of digital cameras. The darkroom and chemical baths had a certain charm that were enchanting. Not long after that, he began imaging through small telescopes.

The realization of the beauty of the night sky started the quest for higher quality images and larger telescopes. Over the past two decades he has tested several dozen telescopes, cameras, mounts, and accessories. Some of the experience gained is shared in our gear reviews and guides section (under resources).

Over the years he has explored various forms of astrophotography, including lunar, solar, planetary, widefield, and deep sky imaging with DSLR, CCD, and cooled CMOS cameras. Some of the results are shared in our image gallery (under resources).


Formally trained as a mechanical engineer, specializing in design and composite materials, he believed he could use those skills in the field of astronomy to develop solutions that would benefit other enthusiasts like himself.

That combination has led to the development products that are well received by the community, some of which are offered in our shop.

The quest for higher quality results led to innovative solutions such as the unique CDK Reducer-OAG kits.

This finally allowed CDK telescope users to be able to autoguide their setups while using the extreme CDK reducer and that opened the doors to modern smaller pixeled cameras and much longer exposures.


Rouz also felt that conventional telescope mounting systems were much heavier than they needed to be, which negatively impacted the performance of mounts.

The solution for that has been a line of products using carbon fiber composite materials sourced from North American suppliers, that are CAD designed and manufactured using 3D FDM (fused deposition modeling) techniques.
