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 ever before!

Takahashi 1.6X 2" Extender Features

  • Takahashi optical quality in a five-element design.
  • Measures 3.75" in length and weighs 12 ounces.
  • Two thumbscrews and etched safety groove for added equipment security.
  • Five year Takahashi warranty.

Product Questions

Does this extender work like a Powermate? My issue is the use of a Powermate may not provide a large enough image circle to cover the pick-off prism of my SBIG STT-8300 self guiding filter wheel. If I use this extender on my TOA 130--will the image circle cover the pick off prism and allow me to guide ?
Thanks,
Rodd
