  1. Wanted: Vixen SX2 or Vixen SXP - contact via PM please!
  2. Takahashi 32mm Abbe MC

    As an observer who uses the Abbe 32 without glasses, I find the eye relief a little bit too large. The eyepiece has an outstanding sharpness and contrast and gives a very neutral color tone. I'm sorry to hear that you are not satisfied.
  3. You guys are too concerned about the type of telescope you have
  4. What about the Rigel Quick Finder?
  5. Show us your Orthos

    Here are some Takahashi Abbes
  6. Vixen HR 2.4mm

    good news: Vixen HR 3.4mm
  7. Show us your Frac

    Nice! That's an occasion to change your avatar
  8. For completeness, FC-100DC with FTF2025BCR-LW Focuser and TEC turret and FC-100DL with FTF3035B-A Focuser and Takahashi turret.
  9. That I don't really know :-) They are quite redundant. I wanted to have the DL first and then changed my mind to get the DC. Now at the second production run I could not resist and ordered a DL. In the long run, I want to build a binoscope with two DCs. And then I have the DL as a single.
  10. Some days ago, I received my FC-100DL, which is a complement to my FC-100DC :-) Two wonderful scopes...
  11. Show me your eyepiece cases

    Hmm, I don't remember. I think they came like this, but don't know it for sure...
  12. Show me your eyepiece cases

    my double star case:
  13. Which Tak

    Yes, that's going to ruin me, at least financially! A 125/1200mm Fluorite doublet that has the same color correction as the FC-100DF. . .
  14. Takahashi 24, 30, 50mm eye pieces

    I have the LE30, LE7.5, LE5, HI-LE3.6, and HI-LE2.8. I like the 5 and 7.5 for lunar views and cannot confirm the internal reflections. It seems like these internal reflections some people complain about are a thing of the past, and eliminated in the newer eyepieces. So be careful if you buy these used. The LE30 is nice in my opinion, it is very little softer than the Takahashi Abbe 32 with a larger AFOV. It's colour tone is a touch warmer than the Abbe 32, but that can only be noticed in direct comparison. I think the LEs are O.K. for scopes up to F/5 (take care of the exit pupil).
  15. Takahashi 24, 30, 50mm eye pieces

    25585, these focal lengths will result in large exit pupils in fast scopes. What focal ratio do you think about? If you take 7mm as your maximum exit pupil, then you should not go above F/7.1 with the 50mm eyepiece...
