    Takahashi 5mm ED LE Eyepiece - 1.25"

    Takahashi 5mm 1,25" LE Series Eyepiece

    The Takahashi LE Series Eyepiece produces images that live up to the Takahashi name... A name that has become synonymous with terms like "quality" and "precision" in today's amateur astronomy market. Each eyepiece is parfocal, which means little or no re-focusing when changing eyepieces. The five element Erfle design means an excellent 52??? apparent field of view and equally excellent eye relief on all models but the high magnification 2.8mm and 3.6mm.

    The higher magnification eyepieces in the line (2.8, 3.6, 5, and 7.5mm) use ED (extra low dispersion) glass for the best color correction. This is really a bonus when observing planets! All are fully multi-coated for ultimate light transmission. These qualities combine to enhance the viewing through your telescope as well as allow you a comfortable viewing session, even if you wear eyeglasses.

    • Is this mount ASCOM compatible?

      Technically, no, as you cannot operate this mount from any software other than the included TheSkyX Professional software. You can then talk to the mount through other "shell" programs using the ASCOM "TheSky controlled telescope", but TheSkyX must be ru
