The FS series of apochromatic refracting telescopes from Takahashi provides a balance of high performance, compact size, and low cost.  At its heart is a two-element fluorite lens set that provides outstanding performance for both visual and imaging applications.  The FS series has a modular design that makes use of several reducers, extenders and flatterers to further enhance its capabilities and versatility.

By attaching the Extender-CQ1.7X, the FS-60CB is converted into an FS-60Q, a 600mm f/10 telescope consisting of one fluorite element, with a flat field across the image circle. This extender fits between the FS-60 objective and the focuser, creating a unique 4-element-in-2-groups apochromat that is physically shorter than conventional 60mm f/10 refractors.
