  • Takahashi Mewlon M-180C Reflector OTA

    $1,900.00

    The Mewlon series from Takahashi features Dall-Kirkham Cassegrain telescopes for visual observation.  Through proprietary manufacturing methods, Takahashi provides concave anellipsoidal primary mirror and a spherical secondary mirror at a reasonable cost.

    The μ-180 is Takahashi latest addition to the Mewlon line.  This 180 mm aperture telescope is an f/12, 2160 mm instrument.  With the optional reducer / flattener, the f-ratio can be reduced to f/9.8.  The m-180 comes with a built-in 6×30 finder scope.

  • Takahashi Mewlon M-210 Reflector OTA

    $3,000.00

    The Takahashi Mewlon Series of Dall-Kirkham Telescopes by Takahashi combines refractor-like performance in a larger folded optic reflector design.  The Mewlon series comes in three objective diameters:  210 mm, 250 mm and 300 mm.  This revolutionary design has set the standard in folded optic systems.

    The precision optical surfaces of the Mewlon series is at least λ/20.  This results a highly concentrated airy disc, resulting in pin point star images and high contrast fields.  The primary mirror is installed in a specially designed mirror cell that is designed to reduce astigmatism.

    Please Note : Mount and tripod not included.

  • Takahashi Mewlon M-250CRS Reflector OTA

    $8,000.00

    Takahashi’s CRS series of Mewlon telescopes leads the industry in advanced design and optical quality.  At their heart is the Dall-Kirkham Cassegrain telescope design, coupled with a corrector that provides Ritchey–Chrétien like performance.  With the CRS series, Takahashi has added a 3-element corrector plate made from ED glass, converting the telescope to a flat field instrument for imaging and visual observation.  In addition, the CRS series has an electronic focusing system controllable with an ASCOM driver or in an autofocus mode.  Each CRS telescope features a primary mirror cooled by 3 fans.

  • Takahashi TOA-130NS Refractor OTA

    $6,300.00

    The TOA series is a member of Takahashi’s line of triplet refractors.  In the TOA design, three lens elements are used, with the front and rear constructed from ED glass.  The resulting system achieves a high level of apochromatic performance for both visual observation and imaging.  Takahashi engineers have a undertaken a complete redesign of the triplet system, completely eliminating spherical aberration while minimizing axial chromatic aberration in the visible light spectrum.

    In typical apochromatic designs, the elimination of chromatic aberration is usually at the expense of increasing spherical aberration at various wavelengths.  However, with the TOA series, the focal shift across the entire visible spectrum from 436 nm up to 656 nm is less than +/- 0.01 mm.  This is less than 1/100 the aberration of a typical apochromatic design.

    TOA-130NS

    The TOA-130NS is a 130 mm apochromatic f/7.7 refractor with a focal length of 1000 mm.  It features a retractable lens hood and 2.7 inch rack and pinion focuser.  A complete line of flatteners, reducers and extenders are available, including the 67-series flattener, which provides a 90 mm imaging circle.

    TOA-130NFB

    The TOA-130NFB is a 130 mm apochromatic f/7.7 refractor with a focal length of 1000 mm.  It features a retractable lens hood, a 4 inch rack and pinion focuser with a 7:1 fine focuser, and a 360-degree camera angle adjuster.  A complete line of flatteners, reducers and extenders are available, including the 67-series flattener, which provides a 90 mm imaging circle.

    Optical Tube Assembly only (mount, tripod, tube holder and finder sold separately).

  • Takahashi TSA-120 Refractor OTA

    $4,430.00

    The TSA series is a member of Takahashi’s line of triplet refractors.  In the TSA design, an ED glass lens is placed between two lenses, with air spacing in between.  The resulting system achieves a high level of apochromatic performance for both visual observation and imaging. \

    Two focuser options are available:  the stock Takahashi focuser, or an upgrade to the Feathertouch 3.0 inch focuser kit.

    TSA-120

    The TSA-120 is a 120 mm apochromatic f/7.5 refractor with a focal length of 900 mm.  It features a retractable lens hood and a 2.7 inch rack and pinion focuser.  The TSA is compatible with several flatteners, reducers and extenders, including the TOA-35 Reducer, which converts the telescope to a f/5.3 imaging platform with a 44 mm image circle.
