There's often haggling between amateur astronomers about what each feels might be the 'better' scope. Any time one with LOMO optics is in the mix, a concensus ususally follows. Why is that? Perfection. Even the most experienced and discerning observers that have dissected even miniscule differences between optics always state that scope with LOMO objectives are as good as it gets.

LOMO of Russia does not mass produce their optics. Each and every one is designed and hand figured by Master Opticians to achieve that goal, and none are released until it does. That's why they are so hard to come by. At Teton Telescope, we have a shelf full of LOMO optics in stock. Tubes from APM of Germany and focusers from Starlight Instruments are also on hand. In short, we have LOMO telescopes ready for immediate delivery.

It doesn't end there. Not only are they in stock, they are on sale! Consider what older, used Traveller's have been selling for? You can get the same compact, carry-on capable package not for five or six grand, but $3945!

The LZOS lensed 100/800 has often been referred to as the best 4" f/8 ever made. Of the very few that have split hairs betweent some of the world's best scopes in this class give the nod to the LOMO. That speaks volumes....and the 102/800 LW is far lighter and versatile than early CNC Classic tubes to boot!

LOMO 102/650 LW.......normally $4295, now just $3945
LOMO 102/800 LW.......normally $4545, now just $4045

LOMO 102mm f/6.4 and 102mm f/7.9 also available in APM LW-P tube with Feathertouch 2.5" rack and pinion focuser and in APM CNC II tube with Feathertouch 3.5" rack and pinion focuser. Field flatteners also available for larger imaging arrays.

Coming as soon as tubes arrive....LOMO 95/650. The gold standard for 80mm's still available as well in both f/6 and f/7.5 focal ratios.

That sounds great.

What will the 95/650 go for?
