All of Takahashi's telescopes are designed for professionall use. Their cost alone (the cheapest Takahashi telescope costs at least $4000) prices them out of the range of the normal consumer. The company's most expensive telescopes are high grade refractors, but Takahashi also produces reflecting telescopes, and Newtonian-Cassegrain reflectors. Takahashi also makes a line of telescopes that is specifically designed for high quality astrophotography -- these telescopes essentially function as incredibly high powered cameras. Their pro-grade telescopes range in size from refractors less than 1 meter in length to telescopes over 2 meters long.
