Takahashi TOA Series

Takahashi TOA-130 Telescopes are 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 and is packaged in a short 32" tube with the lens shade retracted. This instrument is for those who want to use a medium format camera. It includes a deluxe 4" 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 4" focuser, coupled with the optional dedicated flattener, will produce a fully illuminated 70mm circle with a usable 92mm diameter. 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. Takahashi TOA-130 Telescopes are 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. Ample back focus, over 200mm from the rear cell, has been designed into the system to permit the user to use a variety of CCD cameras, color filter wheels and electronic focusers or film cameras. Package includes retractable lens shade and Scopeguard finder quick-release.

Takahashi TOA-130NS Optical Tube with 2.7" Focuser

The Takahashi TOA-130 triplet Ortho APO System is the first of the new Ortho-Apochromat Series. This telescope employs a newly designed triplet using special elements to produce the highest order of color correction, hence the name Ortho-Apochromat. This telescope is offered as the TOA-130S model with 2.7-inch focuser, or the TOA-130F model with 4-inch focuser. The TOA-130S with 2.7-inch focuser is more than adequate for both visual use as well as most CCD imaging applications. The TOA-130F with 4-inch focuser is specifically designed for imaging applications with medium format cameras.

Takahashi TOA-130NFB Optical Tube Assembly with 4" Focuser

The Takahashi TOA-130F triplet Ortho employs a larger 4-inch focuser for use with the larger format TOA130FF field flattener. This is the preferred approach when imaging with medium format cameras; the TOA-130S with 2.7-inch focuser is adequate for the majority of CCD imaging applications. This telescope produces the highest order of color correction, hence the name Ortho-Apochromat.

Takahashi TOA-150B Refractor on EM-400 Temma II Mount (Limited Availability)

The Incomparable Takahashi TOA-150 Ortho Apochromat * New design 150mm triplet Ortho apochromat * Extremely high order of color correction, absolutely color free images * Highly portable with a retractable lens shade, compact tube * 10 to 1 fine focuser and finder quick release standard * 4” focuser w/camera rotator bearing allows 360? rotation without losing focus * Optional f/5.5 Super Reducer for medium format CCD cameras and large chip digital SLR’s * Oversized tube for superior baffling * Knife edge baffles for extremely high contrast images * enhanced back focus to allow the use of any combination of CCD camera, filter wheel, binocular viewer or 2” diagonal This new design like its smaller companion the TOA-130 is absolutely color free. The 179mm oversized tube was used to provide superior baffling and extremely high contrast. Knife edged baffles inside the tube help provide this great contrast. The high contrast and total lack of color makes the TOA-150 not only an outstanding optical instrument, but it can be used to make outstanding images with a CCD, digital SLR or film camera. Framing the image or placing the ocular in a convenient position is made simple because of the built-in camera angle adjuster that allows the 360-degree rotation of the camera or ocular without loss of focus. The smooth heavy duty retractable lens shade allows the length of the TOA-150 to be reduced to 38” for easy transport to remote sites. Attaching the Extender TOA converts the 150 into and f/11.68 planetary instrument capable of very high magnification images. It maintains the color correction and flattens the field.
