New APM 6"F/8 ED Douplet is shipped
Posted 29 September 2012 - 04:41 PM
Today Nr. 1 was shipped to my TNT, total cost of the Nr. 1 is $ 9,850 , because the tooling cost has been includet.
I should have it around middle to end of next week in my hands.
than I will measure all mechanical specs and update if needet and get it opticaly tested on collimator, by interfeormeter and under real sky.
This is a production sample, not a pre version. Of course I call it test sample, because its the first sample.
If I am able to confirm everything is fine, there will be chance that we can start shipping first samples to customers for christmas, still 3 month time.
If it arrived in perfect collimation to me, its a first good proove, then I will ship it normal way to Mr. Rohr for testing and if its arrives there in perfect collimation, then its a proove 2 for stable cell and good packing.
So Lets cross all our fingers

About collimation, does it have push-pull screws in the cell?
