Takahashi 5mm 1,25" LE Series Eyepiece

The Takahashi LE Series Eyepiece produces images that live up to the Takahashi name... A name that has become synonymous with terms like "quality" and "precision" in today's amateur astronomy market. Each eyepiece is parfocal, which means little or no re-focusing when changing eyepieces. The five element Erfle design means an excellent 52º apparent field of view and equally excellent eye relief on all models but the high magnification 2.8mm and 3.6mm.

The higher magnification eyepieces in the line (2.8, 3.6, 5, and 7.5mm) use ED (extra low dispersion) glass for the best color correction. This is really a bonus when observing planets! All are fully multi-coated for ultimate light transmission. These qualities combine to enhance the viewing through your telescope as well as allow you a comfortable viewing session, even if you wear eyeglasses.

Top Shelf Eyepiece
Besides being a beautifully crafted piece of equipment, it delivers the most neutral tones and colours of all my EPs.

After using the Tak LEs for a while, I really noticed the warmer tones and colours in my Naglers.

Excellent flat field right to the edge and inky black contrast is obvious in the Tak LE 5.

I highly recommend this EP, especially for those seeking accurate tones and colours.

Definitely five stars and two thumbs up.
