Takahashi's Epsilon series of astrographs are known for their exceptional design catered to astrophotography. The Takahashi Epsilon-130D OTA's optical design features a hyperbolic, concave pirmary mirror. This mirror has a 2 element ED corrector lens to aid in eliminating spherical aberration and coma. The chromatic aberration is reduced by half, even with large viewing angles, when you compare the Epsilon 130-D's optical design to that of a conventional Schmidt design.

The new ε-130D has the same aperture as the original but now includes a digital corrector. Using this corrector, the astrograph has improved sharpness and a 1/3 reduction in the size of the spot. This equalizes the spot size of the E-180 at the edge, producing a 44mm diameter circle.The offset secondary mirror provides better illumination of the image formed by the primary mirror.

The Epsilon-130D has a 5.9° field of view. This makes the astrograph perfect for imaging wide field objects like comets and objects with extended nebulosity. The focal ratio of f/3.3 and the focal length of 430mm allows the ε-130D to shorten exposure times, increase color saturation, and produce wide field images that are of the upmost performance.
