Takahashi Epsilon Astrograph




My Astronomy Website

The Takahashi Epsilon-180ED (D=180mm, F/2.8), based on catadioptric telescope design (means association of lenses and mirrors) offers a fundamental innovation compared with Newton reflector or Schmidt astrograph. Therefore, the Epsilon-180ED suits both visual observation and large field imaging needs.

The Epsilon-180ED wide field is perfectly flat and allows the use of traditional photographic formats as 24×36 (35mm) or 6×6 and even 6×9. Stellar images of less 20µ can be recorded, which highlights the extreme accuracy of this telescope. Epsilon’s images provide incomparable contrast and sharpness.
