Takahashi M-300 O.T.A.


The Mewlon Series of Dall-Kirkham Telescopes by Takahashi? combines refractor-like performance in a larger folded optic reflector design.

The standard EM-500 or optional NJP mounts provide a stable, accurate platform for the M-300. The integral polar alignment telescope and R.A. axis level make accurate polar alignment to within 2 arc minutes of the celestial pole quick and easy. The reticle is designed to be used in either Hemisphere until the year 2030. No other manufacturer uses such a highly accurate polar telescope.
