Takahashi FC100DL Optical Tube Only



The new FC-100DL fluorite apochromat is the latest addition to the lightweight FC line of Takahashi telescopes.

Utilizing a Steinheil design, the objective places the fluorite element at the back of the f/9 optical tube and with a 900mm focal length, the observer can view both terrestrial and deep sky objects objects at high magnification with color free views.

The FC100 DL is only available via a one off small production run. We are limited to only a small batch and once sold the telescope will be discontinued. 

The FC100 DL features an F9 version of Takahashi's legendary Fluorite doublet lens.  At F9 this telescope will be ideal for the discriminating solar system observer who wants the best quality in a superbly made ultra light weight tube.

The telescope features a 2.5" rack and pinnion focuser and comes equipped with a bespoke Takahashi tube clamp.

An optional 6x30 Finderscope with black finder bracket will also be available.
