is the announcement from APM; Markus says the LOMO objectives are available with a choice of tube and focuser starting
at $1390. Would that include the pictured 2" FT, or an Asian import?
This was their previous offering: APM/LOMO 80/480 CNC w/2" focuser
I wonder if APM is offering the 2.5" FT R&P the SV includes as an option; they have used the FT 2" crayford previously.
The SV CNC clamshell is a much nicer piece of work than the APM "pipe clamp" style clamshell, FWIW.
It would be nice to see the list of options APM is offering but I don't see anything on their site. Built to suit, I suppose...
The new SV80S
is a "dresser" version of the old SV80S that wouldn't be considered a "value" scope. I imagine just the fancy wood case alone adds quite a bit to the package price!
