Takahashi FS-60CB O.T.A.


Takahashi designed the FS60CB to be an ultra portable high quality small apochromat. The design has its hard multi-coated fluorite objective up front with a low dispersion hard multicoated rear element

This compact short focus [f/5.9 - 355mm] apo refractor is the perfect eclipse telescope and with its dedicated reducer [f/4.2 - 255mm] is a great little astro camera or spotting scope.

The FS-60CB is available with the revolutionary "palm sized" equatorial mount "The Teegul Sky Patrol." This small, very portable sidereal rate mount will fit in a camera bag and can be attached to a camera tripod.

This smallest most portable mount can be taken around the World for solar eclipse or expeditions to remote areas.
