  1. Recently I acquired a second-hand FC-100DC with MEF-3. I don't think that the MEF-3 is the optimum, because there is some flex in the sheetmetal plate that attaches to the housing. I expect the FTF micro pinon to be more precise due to less backlash. But certainly since Tak focusers vary quite a bit one might be equally satisfied with his/her copy.

    How are your uses of the 2 going to differ?

    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.

    Here's a prediction for you!

    Tak are going to empty all our wallets on these FC100D fluorites, then they will unleash a 125mm version/versions! ???££££££££££££££££££££££££££......!

    But a truly killer scope!!

    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. . .
