TAKAHASHI - SKY 90
The Sky 90 is an f/5.6 fluorite doublet of 500mm focal length. It has a retractable dewshield and 2" and 1.25" eyepiece adapters are included as standard. The Sky 90 is an excellent travel scope easily fitting into a standard 17" briefcase

The Extender - Q, see charts above, is a photo-visual screwed barlow system, using standard T-thread extension tubes on the output. The basic barlow gives 1.2x increase in magnification, and each extension tube increases this by about the same factor. Note that we also offer a T-thead extension tube set (right), with 5,10,20 and 40mm, so that you can tune a CCD system.
