The longer EM-200 tripod has much longer solid legs that also spread a wider stance/footprint that I like......The hub is larger and more heavy duty as well.....
No doubt booth scopes are exceptional optically and show off the high quality build that we have come to love and expect from Takahashi. Last night Orion had already moved West into the trees and out of my window of opportunity...unless I travel north to a farm it is goodbye old friend until the fall So we spent time on Sirius then swung around to Leo and Ursa Major.
While the edge went to the FC-100 as one would expect the FC-76 is outstanding and certainly punches above its weight class......love it.
Finally, I feel very good about the spread that has come together in my Takahashi aperture
FC-76 to FC -100 24mm jump
FC-100 to FS -128 28mm jump
that's just fine.....
what would the jump be from say the
FS-128 to FS-152?
