Takahashi Abbe Orthoscopic Eyepiece Series

Takahashi has just re-introduced their line of Abbe Orthoscopic eyepieces. They feature the classic three and one configuration. These eyepieces perform particularly well with the Takahashi 2x Barlow lens and will produce a nearly flat field.

The 44° apparent field of view makes these eyepieces perfect for lunar and planetary observations. This simple configuration produces a high contrast sharp image in this high performance eyepiece.

The Takahashi Abbe Series is essentially par focal from the 6mm to the 32mm and is suited to be used in turret eyepiece holder which makes changing eyepieces easy as turning the turret to the desired eyepiece. Each of the four elements is fully multi-coated for maximum light transmission which significantly affects the contrast positively.

Great execution of a classic design
This is the eyepiece for you if you are trying to squeeze that last little bit of light and contrast out of your scope. Frankly, all of the current generation of Abbe Orthos are great eyepieces. What makes the TAO the best? Je nais se quoi? I've done a little comparing with UO-HD-Os and KAOs. The TAOs just seemed easier to use. Perhaps it's the rubber eyeguard that helps best position the eye. Whatever it is, I don't regret paying a little extra for them. They are a pleasure to use and provide exquisite views.
