A compact apochromat for amazing images
This APO with a 96mm aperture offers astrophotographers and visual observers excellent optics and a high-quality mechanical system. Almost 4-inch aperture and good resolution makes it interesting for astrophotographers and visual observers alike. Thanks to its high-quality triplet lens system, this telescope is one of the best of its type. One reason for this is the Hoya FCD100 ED glass, manufactured in Japan, featuring exceptionally low dispersion. With it, you will discover the allure of the night sky!
The highlights at a glance:

Enjoy nebulae and planets at very high magnification: even then, the image remains clear and sharp.
A telescope for all astronomy enthusiasts who value high image quality.
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.
Large 2.5" focuser: precise and stable
This improved 2.5" hybrid focuser makes observation and photography even easier and more precise. The focuser is based on the Crayford design, but with an additional guide rail in the form of a toothed rack with angled grooves. This combination makes the focuser especially precise but still stable.
Simply connect whatever you want, from adapters to large eyepieces or heavy camera equipment: this apo can carry equipment weighing up to 10kg. Once the focus is set, it stays put even if the telescope moves.
360 degrees rotatable: the rotatable and lockable focuser makes it easy to align with your chosen object.
M63 thread connection (internal): besides the classic 2" (with 1.25" reducing 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.
