Hi Guys

I was informed that I get in about 2 month the first sample of the new true Apo Binocular sample 100 mm.

No price yet, no firm delivery for serial production, but if sample is nice, serial production will start immediatly

Great news Markus,

It was lovely to meet up with you again at the UK International Astronomy Show last weekend. With all this design work and overseeing manufacturing I don't know where you find the time to attend so many meetings. I am just glad that you do! Looking forward to learning more when you have tested the samples.

Thanks for the update Markus. When will you accepting deposits and starting a customer list? I am interested in the 90 degree model, will all three models be available initially? As for colour an ivory with black trim like the old Zeiss would be my preference but then my head is very much in the nineteenth century.

we will accept deposits when production sample is tested and production run started, not before, which is hopefully soon
