Hi Guys

some good news. At the show in Tucson I spoke to 3 bigger vendors , showed them our 152 ED and asked them if they want to be our US dealer
One told me after the show, no time, no interested.
Second dealer was very interested to sell, but zero interested to buy anything for display or stock. They asked me for free display samples

Last not least, finaly this week Vendor Nr. 3 commit to cooperate with APM and handle the US sales and to order a stock.

OPT will be this vendor.I have informed them about the details and prices for the US market.

OPT can sell worldwide, accept UK, where we have now APM-UK handling and servicing all our APM products.

So if you are from USA, please be so kind and place your order now to OPT for the OTA and lens-cell+adapter.

So far , we have enough pre-ordered to supply any new order in the next weeks with a delivery in March 2013.

I hope everybody is ok to place his order via OPT. If somebody has a personal reason not to order via OPT, please contact me and let me know your problem, I will handle your problem info confidential and find a solution .

Now lets the Ball rolling :-)

Does not surprise me. OPT is becoming one of the premier dealers in Astro equipment nationwide. They're great to deal with - I've bought several scopes from them. I guess now I'll have to vacation near Oceanside this coming summer so I can drool on the 152!

Markus, Will OPT be offering the lens cell (for C6R) or Is that only available through you?
