The Takahashi Mewlon Series of Dall-Kirkham Telescopes by Takahashi combines refractor-like performance in a larger folded optic reflector design. The Mewlon series comes in three objective diameters: 210 mm, 250 mm and 300 mm. This revolutionary design has set the standard in folded optic systems.
The precision optical surfaces of the Mewlon series is at least λ/20. This results a highly concentrated airy disc, resulting in pin point star images and high contrast fields. The primary mirror is installed in a specially designed mirror cell that is designed to reduce astigmatism.
The Mewlon-210 remains a compact telescope. Easily transportable, it does not require a large mount to operate. Its F/111.5 focal ratio is primarily intended for planetary imaging but it remains versatile during observations. The focus, achieved by translating the primary mirror, is very smooth and very precise. The integrated 7x50 scope finder is adjustable and will serve as a handle for transport.
The telescope is delivered with a male and a female dovetails, both Vixen-type.
