Takahashi FS-60CB - 2.36" f/5.9 Fluorite Refractor OTA
Offered up in compact package refractor telescope par excellence - created for the optical connoisseur. It begins with a combination of calcium fluorite crystal lens which are created in a laboratory environment, then hard coated for maximum light transmission. From there it's combined with fluorite crystal and low dispersion glass to offer up optical quality that surpasses any other extra-low dispersion glass refractor on the market. Thanks to Takahashi's controlled environment in crystal creation, absolutely precision can be achieved that cannot be rivaled by nature... And this precision shows in Takahashi's true apochromatic optical systems - and their virtually perfect color correction!
Hard coated in a vacuum chamber for maximum light transmission and internally knife edge baffles means there's no stray light bouncing around either. Two-element, air spaced design means one less light robbing lens than a triplet system and there's no oil between lens to cloud with age. The color correction you see tonight through your Takahashi FS-60CB Flourite Refractor is the same color correction your can expect to see through your Takahashi FS-60 Fluorite Refractor for many, many years to come. It's an investment in optical quality...
Weighing in at less than three pounds, you'll find the Takahashi FS-60CB Fluorite Refractor is perfect for all your needs. The rack and pinion focuser has large, easy to use knobs and optical tube has a mounting area for an optional finderscope. The Takahashi FS-60CB Flourite Refractor comes complete with a non-marring compression ring fitting 1.25" focuser and at only 17" long with the dew shield in place offers up the ultimate in portability. For astrophotographers, the f/5.9 focal ratio, 355mm focal length, and 5.0/7.0 photo field makes for one sweet scope, while visual observers will appreciate the FS-60CB's magnitude 10.7 light grasp and 1.95 arc seconds of resolution!

- Questions & Answers
the FS 60cb comes with the dedicated reducer (to get 255mm of focal length)? if not, do you have it for sale? Also, do you have the adapter for 2" eyepieces?
AlmirQuestion by: Almir Serra Martins Menezes Neto on Aug 5, 2015 8:46:00 AMUnfortunately, the dedicated reducer for the FS-60CB is not included, although it is available as a separate purchase. The Takahashi part number is TDR0060, but we would have to special order this so please contact us if you are interested. The 2" adapter is not noted on the FS-60CB chart and would not reach focus with a diagonal or most cameras.Answer by: Chris Hendren on Aug 6, 2015 11:39:00 AMI would like to purchase an FS-60CB for imaging with a C-0.72x (TRD0060) reducer. What is the back focus of the reducer and what thread does it have on the camera side?What adapters do I need to attach my ASI-1600 camera, filter wheel and OAG (M42 or M48 thread, 43mm back focus) to the FS-60CB when using the Takahashi Reducer-C 0.72X? Is it possible? Is it recommended?Question by: Miguel on Mar 24, 2017 6:10:00 PMThis can be done with a minimum length 1.3mm Precise Parts adapter from the male thread on the Reducer-C 0.72 x to the female M48 or T2 thread of the ZWO OAG. The ZWO with 11mm spacer with FW spacer and OAG = 55mm and ideal back focus from the metal back of the recucer (end of thread spacing) is 56.2mm, so this would get you to 0.1mm of ideal spacing. Please contact us for questions, as this adapter is not on our website. Moving the OAG closer to the camera will likely prevent focus with the guide camera.Answer by: Chris Hendren (Admin) on May 3, 2017 12:42:00 PMQuestion by: Bennet Cecil on Jul 21, 2016 2:25:00 PM
