  • Takahashi CCA-250 Modified Cassegrain OTA


    The CCA-250 is Takahashi’s modified Ritchey–Chrétien, developed as a replacement to the BRC-250 and is designed with imaging in mind.  The CCA-250 produces a flat field across an 88 mm image circle.  At prime focus, it is a 250-mm aperture, f/5.0 astrograph.  Coupled with a reducer, it becomes a fast f/3.6 telescope.  The CCA-250 has a carbon fiber tube and a temperature compensated lens cell to maintain focus during long exposures.  The CCA-250 also has an ASCOM compliant active focus system that enables computer control of the focusing system.

  • Takahashi Epsilon E-130D Reflector OTA


    The Epsilon series of astrographs are specifically designed for exceptional astrophotography.  Takahashi’s proprietary optical design features a hyperbolic, concave primary mirror with a 2 element ED corrector lens to eliminate spherical aberration and coma.  Compared to the conventional Schmidt camera design, the chromatic aberration is reduced by half, even out to large viewing angles.

    The new ε-130D is the same aperture as the original but now uses a digital corrector. This corrector produces improved sharpness and a 1/3rd reduction in the size of the spot equaling the spot size of the E-180 at the edge producing a 44 mm diameter circle. The offset secondary insures better illumination of the image formed by the primary.

    The ε-130D has a 5.9° field of view which is perfect for imaging wide field objects like comets and objects with extended nebulosity. With a speed of f/3.3 and a focal length of 430mm the ε-130D will shorten exposure times, increase color saturation and will produce wide field high performance images.

  • Takahashi Epsilon E-180D Reflector OTA


    The Takahashi Epsilon-180ED (D=180mm, F/2.8), based on catadioptric telescope design (means association of lenses and mirrors) offers a fundamental innovation compared with Newton reflector or Schmidt astrograph. Therefore, the Epsilon-180ED suits both visual observation and large field imaging needs.

    The Epsilon-180ED wide field is perfectly flat and allows the use of traditional photographic formats as 24×36 (35mm) or 6×6 and even 6×9. Stellar images of less 20µ can be recorded, which highlights the extreme accuracy of this telescope. Epsilon’s images provide incomparable contrast and sharpness.

  • Takahashi FC-100DF Refractor OTA


    The Takahashi FC-100D is Takahashi’s latest update to the 100mm fluorite refractor.  The FC-100D uses the Steinheil design with the fluorite element in the rear and an eco-glass front element.  This apochromatic telescope provides outstanding views, both visually and with digital imaging hardware.

    • Great for visual and astrophotography
    • Optional accessories for planetary and deep space imaging
    • Larger 100 mm aperture great high contrast views
    • Excellent for viewing galaxies, globular clusters, nebulae, and planets
    • Rear Flourite element for optimum color correction

  • Takahashi FC-76DS Refractor OTA


    The FC-76DS model features a the Sky-90 2.6 focuser to better hold imaging packages which include DSLRs and CCD cameras with filter wheels. An optional dedicated flattener as well as extender are available to further enhance the capabilities of the FC-76DS. A sliding dew shield is also included and a larger OD 90 mm tube is standard.

    The optional dedicated reducer changes the focal length to 417 mm with a focal ratio of f/5.5 and an image circle of 36 mm. The dedicated flattener operates at f/7.8 and 594 mm produces a 40 mm flat circle. This telescope is exceptionally well-suited for solar eclipse imaging and can be carried by the Teegul Sky Patrol III or larger PM-1mount. When picking out accessories for any Takahashi telescope, a system chart is of great use.

  • Takahashi FC100DC Refractor OTA


    Like the FS series, the FC series are apochromatic refractors with two-element fluorite lenses.  The FC series have larger apertures and longer focal lengths than the FS series, and provide outstanding performance both for the visual observer and the digital imager.  The FC series has its own dedicated set of reducers and flatteners, and is also able to use some of these accessories from the TOA series.

    The FC-100DC model features a fixed dew shield and a 2.2 inch rack and pinion focuser.  While a capable imaging instrument, it is designed with the visual observer in mind.

  • Takahashi FOA-60 Refractor OTA



    The FOA-60 is a new compact apochromatic fluorite doublet refractor from Takahashi.  The telescope features a 60 mm aperture and a 530 mm focal length.  (It is also available with a 1.7X extender, which increases the focal length to 901 mm.  The version with the 1.7X extender is known as the FOA-60Q.)

    The spacing of the doublet elements is such that the correction of the spherical aberrations is similar to that found in the much larger TOA series.  This innovative design results in a Strehl ratio in excess of 96-percent for the base unit – and over 99-percent with the extender.

    • Compact design for relatively long focal length, making it ideal for transport
    • Outstanding visual and photographic performance, providing a 44 mm diameter image circle for full frame imaging
    • Available with a 1.7x extender and a 0.93x flattener

    Note:  FOA-60 Shown.  Mount, tripod, tube holder and finder not included.
