Founder Optics FOT106 Triplet Apochromatic Refractor

This premium Triplet APO refractor from Founder Optics was designed in Japan and is manufactured in Taiwan.

The fully Multi-Coated Triplet optics include two ED glass elements, with a wide air space between each lens.

The FOT106 has outstanding colour and spherical correction. Views and images are sharp and have high contrast.

The FOT106 is machined and assembled to a very high standard at a factory with a long history and good relations with many Japanese brands. 

Every telescope is tested, and an inspection report is included.

The FOT106 features a high-quality 2.7" Rack and Pinion focuser with two sets of 4 ball bearings between the drawtube and focuser cover.

An effective focuser locking knob ensures that the drawtube maintains alignment with the optical axis.

The focuser also features a 1:11 Dual Speed focuser with 95mm of focus travel. The maximum load capacity is 8kg.

Other features include a high-precision rotator to enable easy framing of targets. 

The FOT106 includes a sliding retractable Dew Shield with three locking screws for dew shield stability and alignment.

Includes a Field Flattener with a corrected 44mm image circle and M42 (T) and M48 threads.
