APM Apo 107/700mm - f/6,5 - with 3" crayford-style focuser

High-end colour-corrected 3-lens apochromatic refractor for observing ( and optinal astrophotography - fitted for big CCD cameras).
Airspaced 3-lens system, with FPL 53 glas, certainly fully multicoated. The optical quality is nearly as good as the legendary LZOS optic.
Tube ring info : bottom and top is flat with 5 threads each , also 5 threads are 1/4-20 inch, the 2 outer are 62 mm Losmandy spaced, the 2 inner are 60.2 mm , Astrophysics spaced.
