About This Product
Special Order Item. Please allow 6 weeks for delivery. The Takahashi 645 Reducer-CA 0.72X reduces the focal length of the CCA-250 telescope by 0.72X, increasing the speed of the optical system for astrophotography. The reducer prodces a 60 mm diameter image circle that is ideal for larger imaging chips.

The CCA-250 is Takahashi’s modified Ritchey–Chrétien (or Corrected Cassegrain Astrograph), developed as a replacement to the BRC-250 and is designed with imaging in mind. The CCA-250 produces a flat field across an 88 mm image circle. The CCA-250 offers 3 different focal lengths through the addition of optional reducers and extenders. From the f/5 standard focal ratio at primary focus, it is possible to go to f/3.6 by using one of the two available reducers or to go to f/7.5 by using one of the two available extenders. The choice of the model of reducer or extender depends on the image circle needed and the size of the sensor of the camera to be used.

The CCA-250 has a carbon fiber tube and a temperature compensated lens cell to maintain focus during long exposures. The CCA-250 also has an ASCOM compliant active focus system that enables computer control of the focusing system.

Please note: mount, tripod, and finder sold separately.
