Back in 2019, I started a similar thread for the FOA-60. It came, it went, a TAK FS-102NSV is in the house but I still yearn for something smaller. I did have a lovely FC-76DC with 2" FTF upgrade which I sold because I was a fool (stupidly good optics), so I am getting the itch again. The FC-76 DS will be my FS-102's smaller brother or sister (naming takes place after scope is in the house!).
- Baader M54 Clicklock (just as an idea - is the 2" visual back ok? Is it non-marring?)
- 2.5" FTF Micropinion upgrade to focuser
This will ride on a Gitzo Series 5 and a Diskmounts DM-4.
So, copying from the other thread exactly the words I posted:
So, after a few months of ownership (and hopefully of use!) how do you find the scope? What mount / tripod combos? What eyepieces do you use? What kind of objects do you do you find it suited for? Pros / cons? Tweaks / customizations?
- Inquiring minds want to know! Also, said inquiring minds love photos and poring over details, so have at it!
