Takahashi’s CRS series of Mewlon telescopes leads the industry in advanced design and optical quality. At their heart is the Dall-Kirkham Cassegrain telescope design, coupled with a corrector that provides Ritchey–Chrétien like performance. In addition, the CRS series has an electronic focusing system controllable with an ASCOM driver or in an autofocus mode. Each CRS telescope features a primary mirror cooled by 3 fans.
The CRS models incorporate a field corrector with ED glass lenses that provides a focal ratio of F/10 along with a larger, better corrected field converting the telescope to a flat field instrument for imaging and visual observation. The motorized focusing, ASCOM compatible, is done by translating the secondary mirror. The fans responsible for heating the primary mirror are managed by 3 temperature sensors located inside and outside the tube.
The Mewlon-300CRS is perfectly suited for planetary observation and imaging, due to its long focal length. It is also ideal for deep sky applications; equipped with the F/7.2 reducer it will allow the imaging of compact objects such as planetary nebulae or galaxies.
The Mewlon 300CRS is delivered with 7x50 finder scope and with a pair of tube-rings connected by a bridge plate located at the top of the OTA.
Please note: mount, tripod, tube holder and finder sold separately.
