Takahashi FS-60CB Fluorite Refractor Telescope
Takahashi FS-60CB - 2.36" f/5.9 Fluorite Refractor OTA
Offered up in compact package refractor telescope par excellence - created for the optical connoisseur. It begins with a combination of calcium fluorite crystal lens which are created in a laboratory environment, then hard coated for maximum light transmission. From there it's combined with fluorite crystal and low dispersion glass to offer up optical quality that surpasses any other extra-low dispersion glass refractor on the market. Thanks to Takahashi's controlled environment in crystal creation, absolutely precision can be achieved that cannot be rivaled by nature... And this precision shows in Takahashi's true apochromatic optical systems - and their virtually perfect color correction!
Hard coated in a vacuum chamber for maximum light transmission and internally knife edge baffles means there's no stray light bouncing around either. Two-element, air spaced design means one less light robbing lens than a triplet system and there's no oil between lens to cloud with age. The color correction you see tonight through your Takahashi FS-60CB Flourite Refractor is the same color correction your can expect to see through your Takahashi FS-60 Fluorite Refractor for many, many years to come. It's an investment in optical quality...
Weighing in at less than three pounds, you'll find the Takahashi FS-60CB Fluorite Refractor is perfect for all your needs. The rack and pinion focuser has large, easy to use knobs and optical tube has a mounting area for an optional finderscope. The Takahashi FS-60CB Flourite Refractor comes complete with a non-marring compression ring fitting 1.25" focuser and at only 17" long with the dew shield in place offers up the ultimate in portability. For astrophotographers, the f/5.9 focal ratio, 355mm focal length, and 5.0/7.0 photo field makes for one sweet scope, while visual observers will appreciate the FS-60CB's magnitude 10.7 light grasp and 1.95 arc seconds of resolution!
Don't settle for second best...

Hello, the FS 60cb comes with the dedicated reducer (to get 255mm of focal length)? if not, do you have it for sale? Also, do you have the adapter for 2" eyepieces? Thanks Almir
Unfortunately, the dedicated reducer for the FS-60CB is not included, although it is available as a separate purchase. The Takahashi part number is TDR0060, but we would have to special order this so please contact us if you are interested. The 2" adapt
What do I need to connect my canon 6D?
Hello, In order to attach a Canon 60D to this telescope, you need a wide mount T-adapter [TMW0004] and a camera angle adjuster [TFP7110], along with the prime focus ring [TKP0001] that comes included. Tony
I would like to purchase an FS-60CB for imaging with a C-0.72x (TRD0060) reducer. What is the back focus of the reducer and what thread does it have on the camera side?
The reducer has a back focus of 56mm and the thread size on the back of the reducer is an m52 thread. It's also important to note that the thread has a reverse gender.
What adapters do I need to attach my ASI-1600 camera, filter wheel and OAG (M42 or M48 thread, 43mm back focus) to the FS-60CB when using the Takahashi Reducer-C 0.72X? Is it possible? Is it recommended?
This can be done with a minimum length 1.3mm Precise Parts adapter from the male thread on the Reducer-C 0.72 x to the female M48 or T2 thread of the ZWO OAG. The ZWO with 11mm spacer with FW spacer and OAG = 55mm and ideal back focus from the metal back
