Comment : Mitaka is a leading company of telescope maker and making professional telescopes or mounts.
They used to offer a German mount, GN-170, for amateure astronomers, but now do large telescopes for professional ones.
The upper image is of GNF-65 telescope, 65cm Classical Cassegrain on Folk mount, and its mirror accuracy is
within 1/60 lamda, and its tracking error of stars is within +/- 1 arc-second.
