Takahashi has just introduced the new TAK-UW ultra wide, flate field eyepieces. This original design series produces a flat field and a 90 degree apparent field view with pin point stars acros the field.
These eyepieces were designed to be used with the flat field FSQ's, Corrected Mewlons, Mewlons with MCR correctors. FS-60Q's and TOA's with flatteners and other flat field telescopes. These aplanatic eyepieces are free of coma and spherical aberration.
This new design has 12mm of eye relief and an extendable eyecup for maximum shielding from stray light. All internal serfaces are painted with optical flat black paint to insure greatest possible contrast and to prevent gost images.
Viewing with glasses is only necessary if there is a astigmatism present in the observer's vision. Otherwise, the observer can observe without glasses and enjoy the ultra wide field of view.
