The Takahashi FSQ85-ED is the most portable member of the FSQ Series. This refractor telescope was designed from the ground up for superb performance and is portable enough to go most anywhere. The Takahashi FSQ-85EDX weighs just 7.9 pounds, which means just about any mount will support it, giving you the ultimate in flexibility and portability.

Takahashi has designed the optical system of the FSQ85EDX as a modified four element double ED Petzval system. The optical wavefront has been optimized to remove any astigmatism by adding a second doublet inside the tube. The FSQ85EDX by Takahashi provides high contrast, wide views with no lateral color and is capable of outstanding visual work delivering a 7.0 degree field of sky. Ensuring tight stellar images across the entire color range is possible with color correction from the near UV to the near IR.

The FSQ-85EDX features a 2.7" rack & pinion dual speed focuser with a built-in fine focus that was designed to handle the extra weight of visual or imaging accessories. Also, with a whopping metal back distance 197.5 mm, the FSQ-85 can accommodate a bino-viewer and other accessories that take up a lot of back focus. An included camera angle adjuster rotates a full 360 degrees without loss of critical focus.

Inside the all aluminum tube assembly of the FSQ85 you will find knife-edge baffles that block off axis light and provide maximum contrast. With a rich white color and ebony, scarlet trim, the outside of this astrograph scope is just as stunning as what its insides entail.
