The stunning new William Optics Gran Turismo GTF 81 Apo is the new
jewel of the apochromatic refractor world. From the pristine white
finish on the CNC tube to the elegant dark red trim, this beauty has
more than just good looks. This new GTF81 features a 3-element objective
using high-quality FPL-53 extra-low dispersion glass that reduces any
secondary spectrum to an unbelievable degree. But what makes this scope
truly unique is the second optical component - a 2-element built-in ED
field flattener that corrects the field, providing an excellent flat
field over a 40mm image circle.
