The first new production of 50 pc 1.8x ED Barlow have had a success, only 2 pc left, so we, at APM decited to risk the production of 25 pc Supermonocentric ( Parfocal version ) of each 12 mm, 14 mm, and 16 mm, original

We started the manufacturing yesterday, delivery time is 12 to 14 weeks.

each eyepiece cost Euro 370 ( equals to about US $ 470) , the current strong $ helped to get this best price for this lowest order quantity.

I will announce it also now on the other US sales Plattform and in Germany

Shipping worldwide by insured airmail per order is $ 25 ( per order means per shipment of any 1,2,3,4,5, ...eyepieces as many you order )

if you want one, order now , we ask a 50% deposit and final payment when they are in our hands to be shipped to you.

We keeped the price low, so we are forced to ask you to pay the fees by use of Creditcard or Paypal

send you order now to me at anfrage@apm-telescopes.de

I thought at one time there were plans to produce the shorter focal lengths of these. Has that changed? Would love a 7 and/or 9.

I saw on the eyepiece forum some comments, so to make it clear :

This is not a announcement to get customers on a list. This is a ad for sales of a eyepiece run where the production has really started with firm delivery time.

After this run is sold and the sales moving fast, we will do a run of other 3 difrent focallengthes, so I keep the pre investment under controle. This means a next production run will be 3 of the models between 4 and 10 mm

Then I may think about to make a run of 18 and 21 mm Super Monos

so keep my adds watching

Its good that these are coming back. I already have pairs but I think these will sell well. Any news re: the new "something special" ortho/koenigs that the Berliner Glas engineers are cooking up? Or has that project morphed into this?
