Description

Takahashi and Daystar Filters have partnered together to offer a pair of oustanding solar viewing packages that will double as great dark sky telescopes.  Each package includes either the FS-60CB or FC-76DCU telescope, the appropriate tube holder, a 1.25 inch Takahashi prism diagonal, a Takahashi LE-24MM eyepiece, all coupled with Daystar’s Quark Hydrogen Alpha filter set.

The FS series of apochromatic refracting telescopes from Takahashi provides a balance of high performance, compact size, and low cost. At its heart is a two-element fluorite lens set that provides outstanding performance for both visual and imaging applications. The FS series has a modular design that makes use of several reducers, extenders and flatterers to further enhance its capabilities and versatility.

FS-60CB

The FS-60CB is a 60mm refractor that employs a multi-coated, two element fluorite objective lens with a prime focal length of 355mm. 

With the dedicated C0.72X reducer, the FS-60CB is converted to an f/4.2 instrument. The combination results in a 40mm diameter image circle with 60% illumination and star images within 20 microns across the entire field.  Illumination is maintained at 95% or more out to a 25mm diameter, and is 72% illuminated out to a diameter of 35mm.

With the dedicated FS-60 flattener, the resulting field flatness is greatly improved out to the four corners of a full frame DSLR sensor. The resulting combination is an f/6.2, 374mm instrument with an image circle diameter of 44mm.
