Takahashi FC-76DS f/7.5 Doublet Fluorite Apochromat Refractor
Essentially the same as the FC-76DC but fitted with the larger/heavier Sky-90 2.6” focuser to more easily hold imaging packages which include DSLR’s and CCD cameras with filter wheels. It also has a sliding dew shield (the FC-76DC' is fixed) and has a larger OD 95mm tube diameter.
The Takahashi FC-76DCS is a f7.5 doublet flourite apo' refractor telescope design with a 76mm objective diameter.
The multi-coated fluorite rear lens and eco-glass front element provide maximum light transmission and very high contrast.
When used with the optional CQ1.7x Extender the focal length can be increased to 950mm / f12.5. This provides the depth of focus and spherochromatism of an F12.5 fluorite doublet making it an excellent choice for lunar and planetary observing.
For astrophotography, an optional dedicated flattener is available that operates at 594mm / f7.8 and produces a nice flat 40mm imaging circle. Or, there is a dedicated reducer that results in 417mm / f5.5 and provides a 36mm imaging circle.
Note, the FC76DS has an 95mm diameter tube (the FC-76DC' is 80mm).
The package version includes Tube Holder, 6x30 Finderscope and Bracket.
