Takahashi FOA-60 f/8.8 Doublet Fluorite Apochromat Refractor
The FOA-60 is a traditional Japanese-made long focal-ratio telescope fitted with ultra-high quality optics and manufactured to a very high standard.
With a 60mm aperture, 530mm focal length and a fluorite glass element chromatic aberration you won't need to worry about chromatic aberration! And if used with the optional optically-matched FOA-60Q 1.7X focal extender, the focal length can be increased to 901mm (f15).
The spacing of the doublet elements is such that correction of spherical abberations is similar to that found in Takahashi's much larger TOA series.
The innovative design results in a Strehl ratio in excess of 96% for the base unit and over 99% with the extender!
Astronomy aside, if you have a room with a view (and deep pockets!) this telescope mounted on a nice wooden tripod is perfect!
The package version includes Tube Holder, 6x30 Finderscope and Bracket.
Like the Zeiss Telementor, the FOA-60 will surely become a classic.
- Compact design for relatively long focal length, making it ideal for transport
- Outstanding visual and photographic performance, providing a 44 mm diameter image circle for full frame imaging (requires optional 1.7x Extender)
- An optional 1.7x extender and 0.93x flattener are available.
