Can't find much about this scope on the Internet. It is under the Teleskop Services Photoline and the Astro Professional brand as well as Altair. It is a 130mm aperture, 910 or 913mm focal length APO refractor with a 3" focuser. Seems on par with "close to Tak" sharpness and clarity, color based on the photos I've seen on AstroBin. Would like to know more before spending 1700 euros.

Best,

Kevin

I think Mr Rohr tested a similar elescope and your comments on sharpness seem to echo his review as well.

See: http://www.astro-for...O-130-780&am...

A thread on the same topic if interested:

I purchased quite a lot of stuff from TS. Service is good and they are prompt with replying and shipping. Haven't had a chance to try any after-sales service so cannot comment on that.

It is 915mm FL according to their website:

Good luck with your search and if you get it, do a write up on CN!
