Product Description

TAKAHASHI FC-100DF f/7.4 Fluorite APO Refractor

 

The Takahashi FC-100D uses the Steinheil design with the fluorite element in the rear and an eco-glass front element.  This apochromatic telescope provides outstanding views, both visually and with digital imaging hardware.

Takahashi's FC-100D was designed to be light weight and highly portable. It is offered in two models: the ultra-portable DC visual model that weighs just 2.8kg [6.1lbs] and the DF model that uses the 2.7" focuser which is designed for imaging as well as visual use.  In their standard configuration, each scope is a 740 mm f/7.4 doublet.

With the optional 4 element FC-35 reducer (sold separately), the DF version becomes a 485 mm f/4.9 imaging telescope, providing a 44 mm imaging circle that is suitable for full frame CCD and DSLR cameras.  

*** please be advised the telescope is pictured with optional accessories***

Managed to get out early to see Jupiter with this Fluorite doublet. I could resolve several bands, all with various color shadings as well as the Great Red Spot, early in the morning. The performance on double and multiple stars is really beautiful and the tube is lightweight and very portable. Really impressed the visual wide field performance as well. The focuser is buttery smooth and I wouldn't change a thing! (Posted on 2/8/2017)
