Takahashi FC-76DC O.T.A.






























The new FS-78D is an updated version of the original FC-76 from 1980. The multi-coated fluorite rear lens and eco-glass front element provides maximum light transmission. The design takes advantage of the advances in high resolution digital imaging. The advanced design

allowed the focal length to be reduced by 30mm 594mm at f/7.8.

The model DC uses identical optical components in a smaller

and lighter tube with a fixed lens shade and weighs a little less than 4lbs.

The DC is easily transported and easy to set up.

Both models are allow the user to use either for solar eclipse

imaging. Both can be carried by the Teegul Sky Patrol III

or larger PM-1.
