Takahashi 1.6X 2" Extender
Created specifically for use with the Takahashi TOA, Mewlon, and FS-Series Telescopes
refractor , the Takahashi Extender-TOA130EX acts as both a 1.6X
magnification visual barlow and a photographic tele-extender that
flattens the field. Unlike a traditional barlow lens, the Takahashi
1.6X 2" Extender is a well-designed optical amplification device
consisting of five separate elements. The unique construction allows
for flat, color free, extremely high contrast images! This means the
Takahashi Extender-T excels at high magnification lunar and planetary
visual observation or photography and CCD imaging.
Because the Takahashi 1.6X 2" Extender also acts as a 1.6X
magnification barlow, it provides the TOA, Mewlon, and FS-Series refractor with a
longer focal length. No more squinting through short eye relief
eyepieces for a more magnified view! The Takahashi EX Extender
includes a safety groove to prevent it from slipping out of the
focuser and two thumbscrews mean added securing for your eyepieces,
camera adapters or diagonals. For the astrophotographer, the
Takahashi Extender-T is an added bonus. By correcting the
ultra-violet spectrum, CCD images no longer have a "bloated"
appearance... You'll get more realistic, true-to-vision images than
