Rostec relaunches astrophotography lens manufacturing

31 January 2019

Press release

 

Shvabe holding company (part of Rostec) has resumed the manufacturing of MC Rubinar 10/1000 Macro, a telephoto camera lens for close-up, landscape, architectural and sports photography. It is particularly popular with amateur astronomers as it can capture clear images of the lunar surface, stars and planets of the Solar System.

 

The manufacturing of MC Rubinar 10/1000 Macro was launched at Shvabe’s Lytkarino Optical Glass Factory (LZOS). Fifty items have already been produced and another fifty will become available on the market in the second half of 2019. These lenses are compatible with the majority of reflex and non-reflex cameras and are offered by offline and online photo equipment stores.

 

“We have relaunched Rubinar, a lens that has been legendary since the Soviet times, at a new level. Modern-day photo equipment is made on digital facilities with advanced technologies for the processing of optical and mechanical parts. Given Rubinar’s excellent quality we anticipate high demand both in Russia and beyond. Putting in place manufacturing facilities like these is part of Rostec’s strategy that aims at large-scale diversification and at growing the share of civil-purpose products to 50% by 2025,” said Oleg Yevtushenko, Rostec’s Executive Director.

 

Compared to other Rubinar products, the 10/1000 is distinguished by its compactness, light weight and high image quality. With its technical specifications, this classic lens caters to the needs of both amateur and professional photographers.
