More about FCD100:
Hoya has successfully optimised the mass production of FCD100, thanks to technological innovation. An optical glass with an extremely low dispersion, which is equivalent to fluorite. By combining it with high refractive index optical glass, it has been possible to achieve innovative and unrivalled chromatic aberration correction.
3.5" focuser for full-frame sensors
With this huge focuser, all your problems are a thing of the past - at least those connected to the illumination of your camera. This is because you can use any camera from APS-C to full-frame and get perfect results thanks to the interplay between the objective lens and focuser.
The focuser works on the basis of a hybrid technology comprising a rack (angled grooves) and ball bearings. This means: focusing is completely smooth and accurate, but the load-bearing capability and stability is high. You can even attach heavy cameras and equipment weighing up to 10kg.
M63 thread connection (internal): besides the classic 2-inch (with 1.25-inch reducer adapter) connection for eyepieces and cameras, this instrument also includes a 63mm thread, so you can easily and stably attach a flattener or reducer.
The dual-purpose handle
Simply clever: with the practical carrying handle, your APO is always safe in your hands. Whether during transport or when attaching it to a mount. The handle also serves as a mounting rail for accessories attached in parallel. Everything has its place: you could use e.g. a guide scope and guide camera.
