Diffraction Limited turns 25 years old today – November 1, 2018. We incorporated on November 1, 1993.
Our first product was Quick Fringe software, which sported a graphical user interface running under DOS. Amazingly the Windows version of Quick Fringe is still available today.
Our first “hit” product was MaxIm DL. Version 1.0 was released in September 1997, and quickly became the go-to software product for astronomical CCD imaging. MaxIm DL is going strong 21 years later.
Our first hardware product, MaxDome, launched in 2000. Starting in 2007 Diffraction Limited built OEM imaging cameras, which were distributed under various third party labels. In 2014 we acquired the assets of SBIG, significantly expanding our camera product lineup.
Today Diffraction Limited continues to develop new and exciting imaging products for OEM and research markets.
