  1. Takahashi America: 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.

  2. Takahashi America: 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 ε-180 was introduced by Takahashi as the first of the new Epsilon flat–field hyperbolic astrographs since the 1980’s. The ε-180 was designed to be a very fast f/2.8 imaging system.

    This fast field photo visual astrograph is perfect for digital SLR's and CCD cameras.  The f/2.8 speed will enable the imager to record faint nebulosity not visible in slower instruments.  In addition, the appreciably shorter exposure times reduce tracking error and will produce pin point stars. The ε-180 will produce 10 micron stars across the entire 44 mm diagmer flat 5 degree field.

    The focuser has been improved to allow more precise focusing. Each has a metal insert with a special non-cold flow material to allow for correct focus.

  3. Takahashi America: 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.

     

    Mewlon-250 CRS

    The Mewlon-250 CRS is a 250 mm aperture telescope in an f/10, 2500 mm instrument.  With the optional reducer, the Mewlon-250 CRS can be converted to an f/7.3 telescope.  The Mewlon-250 CRS comes with a built-in 7x50 finder scope.

     

    Mewlon-300 CRS

    The Mewlon-300 CRS is a 300 mm aperture telescope in an f/9.9, 2960 mm instrument.  With the optional reducer, the Mewlon-300 CRS can be converted to an f/7.2 telescope. The Mewlon 300 does not include a finder.  The 7x50 finder and bracket must be purchased seperately.

  4. Takahashi America: 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.

  7. Takahashi America: 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.
