is a state-of-the-art fluorite apochromatic refractor. It is capable
of delivering ultra sharp high contrast images over the entire
field of view. The images are totally free of chromatic aberrations.
Stars appear as tack-sharp points of light on a jet-black background.
The instrument is perfect for photo/visual studies of the Moon,
the planets and is also a phenomenal wide field astrograph. Using
the dedicated focal reducer, the FS-102 becomes a wide field astro
camera with an amazing 5-degree field of view! Perfect for use
with a 35mm camera or a medium format custom vacuum back 6x7 roll
film holder (a Takahashi© exclusive). The FS-102's standard 2.7"
focuser makes this possible.
mount for the FS-102 is the EM-10, but an optional EM-200 mount
may be used for added stability and accuracy. Both mounts are
all electric with built-in polar alignment telescopes and leveling
bubbles to permit 2-arc minute alignment on level or uneven ground
in a few minutes. An autoguider connection is standard.
