This is a prototype of 67FL. It’s 300mm/F4.5 optical system. Very compact and light weight. OTA weighs 740g. It’s quite easy to carry and handhold with a camera. There is nothing we hesitate to take it to the field.  Probably this will be my best coupling with new Fuji’s X-E2 camera I’m eagerly waiting. This combination should create high contrast and rich color depth images.


In my night sky test, unfortunately I have to say it doesn’t optical work with current 0.7x super reducer. 1.08x filed flattener shows perfect performance though. I hope the dedicated reducer will be coming up sometime next year.

Followings are pictures in Japanese Bird Festival last weekend.

One day I will build up 67FL bino for myself. It should be great wide-field binovewing scope.
