I hope we are going to be able to read an observing report. Awesome just doesn't seem like a strong enough word.

Markus what is the cost of the binos and mount seperately (or estimate % breakdown)? Just wondering if binos or mount is more expensive when you get to that size. :confused:

Awsome binos! Will this go in the record books? :jump: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:

Just realized this is for sale. I thought it was built for an observatory or private owner.

Once APM has made a one-off, they often show it up for sale, even if it is already in the hands of the customer, to show what they can do and what the estimated price will be.

the one shown here with pictures is sold, yes, but we can do it again if you place a new order.

As additional info to the questions of the refractor forum:
this binocular is build to be used in 3 ways
a, as shown, as binocular telescopes with Binoptic/Germany made bino asembly with high reflection mirror and easy collimation build in. The usefull power is the same as for a single standart 12" Apo

b, the bino assembly can be taken off, extensions to be screwed on, then 2 side by side 12" apos remain and can be used by 2 people at the same time

c, one or both tubes can be taken ouf of the rotating ring and mounted onto a standart germany equatorial mount for single telescope use

so all flexibility excist

Better not to know.

Binocular on Steroids would be a better quote.
