The overall average is more like .9 or so. .8 strehl may be the overall average at various wavelengths of the visible spectrum.

Yes I heard Tak got their fluorite lenses from the same company as Canon. I am not sure if they still make fluorite lenses anymore?

A few responses: yes, Tak still has fluorite in their range - the new FC-100's are fluorite, the FS-60 is fluorite, the FCT and FET "Buy a house instead" scopes are fluorite.

Canon-Optron make the lenses for Takahashi to order, as they did for Vixen (not sure if they still do - doubt it, as the majority of Vixen stuff now is Synta spec). As far as I am aware, ALL Takahashi optics are made in Japan without compromise.

I believe Tak still uses MgF2 AR coatings predominantly, though this may not be so.
