Takahashi Extender QE - 1.6X 2" Extender and Field Flattener
Created specifically for use with the new Takahashi FSQ-106ED “New Q" refractor , the Takahashi Extender - TSQ0106QE 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 Extender QE 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 QE excels at high magnification lunar and planetary visual observation or photography and CCD imaging.
Because the Takahashi Extender QE also acts as a 1.6X magnification barlow, it provides the FSQ-106ED refractor with a longer focal length. No more squinting through short eye relief eyepieces for a more magnified view! The Takahashi Extender-NQ 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-VQ 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!
