Takahashi CCA-250 Modified Cassegrain OTA$15,000.00
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.Takahashi CCA-250 Modified Cassegrain OTAJoyce EldridgeMarch 9, 2020
Takahashi Epsilon E-180 Reflector OTA$4,800.00
The Takahashi Epsilon-180ED (D=180mm, F/2.8), based on catadioptric telescope design (means association of lenses and mirrors) offers a fundamental innovation compared with Newton reflector or Schmidt astrograph. Therefore, the Epsilon-180ED suits both visual observation and large field imaging needs.
The Epsilon-180ED wide field is perfectly flat and allows the use of traditional photographic formats as 24×36 (35mm) or 6×6 and even 6×9. 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 Epsilon E-180 Reflector OTAJoyce EldridgeMarch 8, 2020
Takahashi Epsilon-130 Reflector OTA$2,600.00
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.Takahashi Epsilon-130 Reflector OTAJoyce EldridgeMarch 8, 2020
Takahashi Mewlon M-180C Reflector OTA$1,900.00
The Mewlon series from Takahashi features Dall-Kirkham Cassegrain telescopes for visual observation. Through proprietary manufacturing methods, Takahashi provides concave anellipsoidal primary mirror and a spherical secondary mirror at a reasonable cost.
The μ-180 is Takahashi latest addition to the Mewlon line. This 180 mm aperture telescope is an f/12, 2160 mm instrument. With the optional reducer / flattener, the f-ratio can be reduced to f/9.8. The m-180 comes with a built-in 6×30 finder scope.Takahashi Mewlon M-180C Reflector OTAJoyce EldridgeMarch 8, 2020
Takahashi Mewlon M-210 Reflector OTA$3,000.00
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.

Takahashi Mewlon M-250CRS Reflector OTA$8,000.00
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.Takahashi Mewlon M-250CRS Reflector OTAJoyce EldridgeMarch 9, 2020

Takahashi FSQ-106EDX4 Refractor OTA$6,040.00
Actually in stock! See Gallery Picture.
The Takahashi FSQ-106EDX4 is a redesign of the popular FSQ-106 and is a superior flat-field super quadruplet refractor. This redesigned version features a flat field advanced Petzval quadruplet design, with extra-low dispersion (ED) glass for super color correction in the UV, visible and IR wavelengths. This optical design results in pin point star images and increased field illumination. Designed from the ground up for digital imaging, this new 4 element / 4 group design is also capable of stunning visual performance.
Some of the features of this outstanding design include:
- Completely new optics for digital imaging, featureing two premium ED elements for outstanding color correction
- An advanced Petzval design includes an almost full aperature G3 lens to ensure greater image illumination
- A flat field without the need for an additional flattener, across a large 88 mm image circle
- Generous 178 mm back focus allows the user to attach a variety of imaging cameras and accessories, 2 inch diagonals, and many other visual devices including bino viewers.
- A 4 inch, heavy duty focuser with a an included camera angle adjuster for precise rotation of CCD cameras
