Product Description

Takahashi has now developed a 1.7x module for the FS-60CB and it is called the FS-60Q. The Q is for the four elements that make up the optical train. The quadruple elements that make up the Q are the doublet fluorite objective and the two-element 1.7x CQ module.

The FS-60Q includes the factory installed CQ [1.7x] module to produce a 600mm fl, f/10 system. This new configuration offers the longer focal length, a flatter field across a 35mmø circle that is 95% illuminated.

This instrument is a great eclipse scope. The 600mm focal length offers a good sized image on the sensor or film in an extremely portable package. This instrument can be easily carried by the Takahashi Teegul Sky Patrol III mount. The telescope, mount and digital SLR camera can fit in a carry on bag for convenience and security.

With the CQ module removed the FS-60Q becomes the FS-60C which can be used at the native 355mm, reduced to f/4.2 at 255mm or flattened to f/6.2 at 370mm for imaging or wide field viewing.  The FS-60Q can be used to image solar or lunar eclipses at 600mm for a 6mm image on the sensor or at 370mm or 255mm for wide field images.
