Takahashi's new FC-100DL fluorite apochromat is a new addition to the lightweight FC line of telescopes. The Steinheil design of objective places the multi-coated fluorite element in the rear of this f/9 system. With a weight of 3.8kg the scope is easily portable.
The longer focal length of 900mm can produce high magnification color free views of the Moon and planets possible as well as very high images of deep space objects. Its design also works well with the FC-35 reducer which was designed for the digital age.
4mm ABBE EYEPIECE
upon the success of the Takahashi Abbe eyepieces,
the 4mm has been added to the lineup. The design is
true to the original Abbe design of Ernst Abbe and
it is the perfect addition to the rest of the Takahshi
Abbe line up.
the lineup is complete with the addition of the 4mm
Abbe. The set is essentially parfocal. The 4mm will
give high magnification high contrast views due in
part to the multi-coatings designed to eliminate ghosts
is releasing an updated version of their 28mm 60°apparent
field of view Erfle eyepiece.
28 Er is designed to be a light weight high performance
eyepiece. It features anti-reflection multi coatings
to control flare and ghosting. True to the original
5-element design, the viewer is presented with a flat
field of view of 60°degrees across. Weighing
a little less than 5 oz. the eyepiece is a light weight
for a wide field eyepieces and can be easily used
with turret holders and has been designed to be par
focal with the Takahashi Abbe Series.
field of view coincides with the maximum field the
eye can accept. Each view will encompass the entire
field. Used with the Takahashi FC-60CB, the 28mm provides
close to the effective minimum magnification of 12.6x
for views of deep space objects and comets.
new Takahashi FSQ-130ED incorporates optics that use
an exceptionally advanced design that produces a flat-field
astrograph a with large highly illuminated field that
is further enhanced with the new dedicated 645 reducer
that produces a Ø70mm image circle at f/3.5.

Seisakusho of Tokyo, Japan has been producing fluorite apochromatic
refracting telescopes since they introduced the 90mm f/10 FC-90
in 1979. This revolutionized amateur astronomy as the world's first
fluorite apochromatic telescope in regular production. Since that
time Takahashi has not only produced fluorite apochromats up to
250mm but also mountings and a variety of state-of-the-art telescopes
such as the four-element FSQ-106, Hyperbolic Astrographs, Newtonian-Cassegrains
and Dall-Kirkham Cassegrains.

2 to the 350lb. capacity, 2.5 arc-second accurate EM-3500 observatory
mount. Additionally, Takahashi manufactures two small, compact alt-azimuth
mountings with fine slow-motion controls for those who prefer the
simplicity of this design for terrestrial and astronomical applications.
All Takahashi metal castings are sand cast from their own factory
located near their Urii, Japan fabrication facility.
known in the United States for their amateur and small observatory
instruments, Takahashi supplies complete systems for the professional
community including the construction of public observatories such
as the Goma Observatory. Takahashi is currently building a 1.5-meter
telescope for a public observatory in Japan. Many professional instruments
throughout the world use Takahashi's legendary focusers.
Takahashi also manufactures a complete line of 1 ¼” LE oculars as well as the incomparable LE-50 2” ocular. They produce a wide range of camera adapters for digital SLR’s, small, medium and large format CCD cameras to work with their instruments. Takahashi will continue to provide optical and mechanical excellence with innovative and superior designs.
