    Default StellarView SV-102 Access lens type



    In a few months I am buying this scope. Was lurking on "another" forum and read a discussion on this scope. It seems that the first run used FPL53 glass and then they changed to another type (something 100). is the new glass comparable to the FPL-53? Bill

    Ok. just found Skyrovers 2017 post. The FCD-100 is the Chinese version of the Japanese Ohara FPL-53 glass. Should be comparable? Bill

    Yes, from what I read they have similar properties. Are you looking for visual, or AP scope?

    Hi BigZ! Mostly visual. Getting an AVX mount to pair it with. Thought it might be a good combo to begin AP later. Bill

    For visual there are advantages of having ED doublets like SV-102 Access. They weight less, cool faster and easier to balance. Well made ED doublet will show no CA visually. If you want to deep your toes into AP it will work to. However, you will get CA on longer exposures, so if you seriously considering AP, you may want to get an APO triplet.

    The FCD—100/ Lanthanum lens set that Stellarvue uses is very good and I am sure you will thoroughly enjoy the refractor.
    Though they do not “guarantee” the Strehl ratio on the Access line anymore they still all seem to be above 0.95 as before.

    Ya gotta keep this Apo/Achro thing in some balance of perspective. Apos are awesome, but long focus Achros aren't that far behind them - Siriusandthepup (CN)
    Refractors kick arse precisely because they don't hide behind excuses. That is, they have no obstructions to hide behind. - Jon Isaacs (CN)
