Takahashi TOA-130NS - 5.1" f/7.7 Ortho-APO Refractor Telescope - 2.7"" Focuser on EM-200 Temma II Mount

The Takahashi TOA-130NS is the first of Takahashi's newest optical design: The Ortho-Apochromat. This 21st century innovation employs a newly designed triplet using special elements to produce the highest order of color correction. Orthoscopic means perfected visually and Apochromatic means you're free from those strange violet glows which often accompany bright stars or planets. Thanks to the ingenious design of layering an FPL-53 Extra-low Dispersion glass element between two extreme quality crown and flint elements - perfection ensues. And what's more, it's air spaced, so there's no oil between the elements to leak or become opaque with age. The lens cells are durably constructed to withstand transport - yet are fully able to be collimated should the owner wish to make adjustments. With 1/12th wave accuracy and an airy-disc Strehl ratio of 0.992, the optics on the Takahashi TOA-130F Ortho-APO are as near to perfection as you can get!

The Takahashi TOA-130NS Ortho-APO is a dream come true for those who want to use a medium format camera. It includes a deluxe 2.7" focuser with built –in camera angle adjuster. The camera angle adjuster enables the observer or astrophotographer to turn the ocular or camera 360 degrees to better view or frame an object to be photographed. The 2.7" focuser, coupled with the optional dedicated flattener, will produce a usable 40mm diameter. But that's not all. The focuser itself offers a generous 222.5mm of backfocus to allow the use of additional accessories, like adding on color filter wheels, etc. What's more, the focuser itself offers "no slip" stability with dual knobs for ease of use and 2" threaded eyepiece/accessory holder with 1.25" compression ring eyepiece holder also supplied - along with Scopeguard finder quick-release.

The Takahashi TOA-130 Refractor is perfect for visual, CCD and classic astrophotography. The f/7.7 focal ratio with a 1000mm focal length is long enough (using the optional LE-ED 2.8mm Takahashi ocular, for instance) for high magnification observations of the Moon and planets and yet will produce a 2.5° field at 20x when used with the optional Takahashi flat field LE-50 2 " ocular. The high order of color correction of the Ortho-Apochromat Series produces images with saturated color and, thanks to the numerous knife-edged baffles, it also displays an image with amazing contrast - all packaged in a short, 32" tube with the dew preventive lens shade retracted that weighs only 22 pounds.

About the Takahashi EM-200 Temma IIM Mount...

The Takahashi EM-200 Temma IIM is an accurate, precision-built GoTo German equatorial mount that provides a stable platform for payloads of up to 40 pounds. The modern aesthetic design of the EM-200 is highly attractive as well as beautifully functional. The RA and DEC stepper motors are fully integrated into the mounting,and the high precision design and construction provides cyclic errors lower than +/- 5 arc seconds.

The integrated polar alignment telescope has an illuminated reticule which can be dimmed to suit the user or observing conditions. In conjunction with the precision altitude and azimuth adjusters, this will typically give polar alignment accuracy within 2 minutes of arc of the celestial pole. Included in this package are an RS232C cable, ST-4 or ST-7 cable, shaft encoders, hand controller and power cord for 12V.

The new style EM-200 mounts include the ability for operation on 12v and feature high speed slewing at 700x [sidereal rate]. 12V will give you a slewing speed of up to 700X sidereal. Your PC is required to actuate the GoTo functions on this mount. A dual-axis hand controller and power cable for 12V/220V battery connection is included.
