Takahashi FC-100DF f/7.4 Doublet Fluorite Apochromat Refractor
Essentially a Takahashi FC-D100DC fitted with a larger, stronger, Sky 90 2.7" focuser making it more suitable for deep sky imaging with the optional FC35 Focal Reducer (provides a 44mm circle and an F4.9 focal ratio).
The new Takahashi FC-100DF is fitted with a premium quality F7.4 Fluorite doublet optic that provides superb contrast, sharpness and colour correction.
Utilises the Steinheil design with a fluorite rear element and an eco-glass front element.
A versatile telescope that provides wonderful views at low and high magnifications but can also be used for astrophotography. When combined with the optional FC-76 Reducer the FC-100D operates at F5.4 and delivers a fully corrected 35mm circle that is perfect for APS sized DSLR's.
The FC-100D is surprisingly light but. like all Takahashi scopes, is very well engineered.
The package version includes Tube Holder, 6x30 Finderscope and Bracket.

The FC 100 series are mechanically very well made telescopes, very light and the focuser is extremely smooth. The optics however, can only be described as exquisite. I mainly use my FC DF with a binoviewer, the views of the moon at various stages, have been incredible and I am looking forward to future planetary viewing with the DF. I cannot recommend this telescope enough, truly superb.
