Takahashi Epsilon

The Takahashi Epsilon is based on a catadioptric telescope design offers a fundamental innovation compared with Newton reflector or Schmidt astrograph. Therefore, the Epsilon-180ED suits both visual observation and large field imaging needs.

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 Mewlon

You have dreamed of a reflector with exceptional and powerful optics, with a generous diameter and with the guarantee of an incredible contrast : Mewlon is for you !

With its Cassegrain range reflectors, based on Dall-Kirkham optical design, Takahashi acted as a pioneer, and made Schmidt-Cassegrain other manufacturers outdated. This reflector with its excellent optical qualities can be used in a wide range of applications, and brings it on the top of the market. No worldwide mass production of reflectors can be compared to the Mewlon and be able to offer similar performances : compactness, power, rationality and versatility.

Mewlon are available in 3 diameters (210mm, 250mm and 300mm), optical tube assemblies (OTAs) or associated with equatorial mountings.

 

Takahashi CCA-250

Introduced in 1998, the BRC-250 astrograph adopted a totally original optical design, based on Baker-Ritchey-Chrétien, perfectly designed for the imagery at that time. Following the recent evolution of CCD cameras offering larger sensors, Takahashi decided to modify its optical design. To work out this new CCA-250, successor of the BRC-250, the optician engineer Mr Mori Hitoshi opted for a Cassegrain base to lead to this new instrument perfectly adapted for the various objects of the deep sky.

CCA-250 (CCA stands for Corrected Cassegrain Astrograph) offers 3 kinds of focal lengths by the addition of optional reducers and extenders. From F/5 standard focal ratio at primary focus, it is possible to go to F/3.6 by using one of the 2 reducers or to go to F/7.5 by using one of the 2 extenders available. The choice of the model of reducer and extender will depend on the image circle needed, but also according of the size of the sensor of the camera used.

Finally Takahashi carried out a very multi-purpose astrograph offering a extremely high standard product bringing a great optical quality as well as irreproachable mechanics on top of which is added a splendid design associating aluminum and carbon.
