TAKA FC100DZ for sun?

Post by fedele »

Hi,
is the doublet FC100DZ, with Fluorite internal side, a good choice for SUN observation and imaging?
Any risk? is a good choice in general?

Hi there,

The Tak seems an 'OK' performer for Ha and white light. For CaK there will be quite a bit of spherical aberration at full aperture and would only really recommend using at 50mm aperture.

If you have a cheap achro you would probably get better results. If you already have the Tak try it and see how you get on!
