Description

Takahashi and Daystar Filters have partnered together to offer a pair of oustanding solar viewing packages that will double as great dark sky telescopes.  Each package includes either the FS-60CB or FC-76DCU telescope, the appropriate tube holder, a 1.25 inch Takahashi prism diagonal, a Takahashi LE-24MM eyepiece, all coupled with Daystar’s Quark Hydrogen Alpha filter set.

Like the FS series, the FC series are apochromatic refractors with two-element fluorite lenses.  The FC series have larger apertures and longer focal lengths than the FS series, and provide outstanding performance both for the visual observer and the digital imager.  The FC series has its own dedicated set of reducers and flatteners, and is also able to use some of these accessories from the TOA series.

The FC-76DCU model features a fixed dew shield and smaller, 80 mm diameter barrel for the same performance in a package featuring reduced weight and overall length.  It utilizes a 1.25 inch rack and pinion focuser.

Optical Tube Assembly with Daystar Filter, Diagonal & 24mm Eyepiece only (mount, tripod, tube holder and finder sold separately).
