Hi friends

APM America will celebrate a like Grand Opening at the NEAF show. As soon the economy allows we will open a sales store in New Jersey.

I am going to ship many boxes next 2 weeks to USA for the NEAF show. If you have wishes what you like to see at our booth or even better like to purchase at our booth, please be so kind and send me your personal wishlist and I see what we can realize

One item we will have in any case the new 2.5" fieldflattner for all these modern Apos with 2.5" and bigger focusers

thanks for your requirements

Markus Ludes

Will you be bringing any LOMO 80/600 CNC II's? Maybe one with unusually high Strehl?

Can you bring the one with 99+ Strehl lens in a CNC II tube? I plan to attend NEAF, and would like to purchase it from you there.

One question- do you remember the optics/cool down issue that some of the 80/600 cells had? Has LOMO addressed this? Or is it a matter of lens cell tightness? I still live in Boston (with some cold nights!), you know...

Thanks!
John

Only 97 strehl? Heck...I wouldn't even bring a scope with such embarrassingly low numbers. :poke: :grin:

Can you elaborate on this a bit? as I just purchased a used MW 80/600. I believe that it was produced in 02, and was unaware of any cell problems with these scopes. Makes me wonder if it might be a potential issue with mine.

Well, I can't say that it was many of them, but I used to have an 80/600 which had a pinching problem as it cooled outside (keep in mind, my delta T was about 30 or 40 degrees). Markus explained that it could be fixed by adjusting some screws within the cell. But I am now wondering if LOMO has addressed this or not, or if it was necessary to.

In any case, though, the views through the 80/600 lens set are the sharpest and highest quality I have ever seen through any telescope, period. Which is why I am going to get another one!

Best,
John

ok, I bring the scope.

The Pinch issue was in 1 single shipment only, we found it, and it was fixed by LOMO

It has been only a few of very many lenses

see you at neaf

If it were in northern Delaware it'd be a 10 minute drive for me and no sales tax. I moved from NJ three years ago, now they're getting a new telescope store. Any chance of a branch in Delaware?

"So that's One APM 105mm Apo with CNC tube; a side order of Feathertouch focuser; two TMB planetary's and One Lunt solarscope to go. Is that right? Would you like dark skies with that?"
