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.



Based 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.

Now 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 and flare.


Takahashi is releasing an updated version of their 28mm 60°apparent field of view Erfle eyepiece.

The 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.

The 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.

The New FSQ-130ED

The 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.

Takahashi 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.

Takahashi produces polar equatorial mounts from the ultra-compact Teegul Sky Patrol 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.

While better 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.
