Quote:I remember your discussion with Markus but he told me that this FF/FR (Riccardi) is a matched system, perfectly optimized (his words), so I'm hoping for the best. There are no 130mm TAK's that fast and speed is very important for me (NB shooting).How was color correction?
Quote:I've more or less decided that my new astrograph would be APM - LZOS APO 130/780 CNC LW II with Riccardi 0.75x FF/FR. http://www.apm-telescopes.de/en/Telescopes-/Refracting-Telescopes-OTA/Apochro...I want (very) fast, high quality refractor mostly for NB shooting.To my knowledge LZOS guaranties minimum 95% Strehl. What I'm interested is what would be difference between lets say 95% and 98% or higher Strehl for NB or LRGB shooting? Would this difference be noticable in photos?What's you opinion of this scope for AP?Thx
