Great product. Great pre-sales support. Great post-sales customer service.

Thank you FLO.
As a complete novice I would definitely not have chosen the right solution for me. I was sceptical about getting guidance online however the support I received could not be faulted. And, unlike a face to face discussion, I was able to re-read the emails from FLO as, over several weeks, I gradually refined my choice of scope, mount and eyepieces. So, a super massive thank you to the FLO presales team.
Needless to say, the Takahashi is spectacular, I could not be more pleased.

I wish I had bought one of these years ago. Totally worth the cost, if you can get over the fear of dropping it every time you put it on the mount!! I have used this for planetary study. Perfect, bright, sharpÖ I was worried that this telescope would not be better than the good telescopes I was already using. I neednít have worried, this blows the competition right out of the water. I have used this to study very challenging double and multiple stars and pushed this right up to its stated resolving power with absolutely no issues. I could write about the aesthetics and engineering, but itís a Takahashi, so you know itís going to be good. You certainly get what you pay for.
Oh, FLO were excellent as well. Awesome communication and super speedy postage.

The telescope came in a few days to the USA. Great service again from FLO with quick shipping and great communication. I always look to do business with a company I can trust. Thank you for a beautiful telescope!

Best 120mm triplet - very high quality Japanese refractor ☆☆☆☆☆
19 September 2019  | 

Got one of these earlier in the year. Optically it is absolutely superb, probably the best 120mm triplet made. No trace of chromatic aberration at all. TSA stands for Triplet Super Apochromat, and it is just that.

For a 120mm triplet, this refractor is lightweight and my Skytee 2 mount is not strained. Maybe a Marmite thing, but I like the sliding dew shield on the "S" model.

Like all Takahashi telescopes it came triple boxed & in immaculate condition. For use the cooling down time is longer than that of my 120mm doublet, but not dramatically so. The views, allowing for aperture, of planets and anything else is breathtaking. I use a combination of Pentax XW and Baader Morpheus eyepieces, with an APM 30mm Ultra Flat Field for richer field views.

This telescope can handle views to at least 250x easily, probably more but I have not gone over that, yet.

There are cheaper very good Chinese refractors, but the Takahashi TSA120 is king of 120mm, with a well established and reported history of excellence.
