Markus,
Here are some suggestions as I know people want it:

1- Twist lock eyepiece holder so it will be easy to remove or inserted.
2- Collimation Screws radily available without opening the "CAN"
3- Front Objective cover can be converted as masking when needed.
4- Spacing or placement of a finder or RDF.
5- Incorporated for 3/16 -18 as well as 1/4" hole to be competible for different mounts.
6- A guide about its focal length, Number of elements, Field stop and prism type.
7- Keep the weight low but retain the quality.
8- Buffling in dewshield as well as in the barrel.

The number seven is also importent just as from number 1-6. Most users hesitate to buy heavier instrument because of the mounts they already have it. If the weight is under 13# then it can work with most of the mounts that have rated at around 15#.

For colour; it is purely business. Most attract on White, Black or a hint of red into it but you can setup a page and ask for it.

Once it available; I would love to review for it.
Thank you

Hi Jawaid,

1, eyepiece holders are still under design
2, is done already, design is completed , easy access now from outside while you look with 2 eyes :-), great improvement for anybody.
3, baffles : why baffles ? No binocular worldwide has baffles
4, threads 3/8" and 1/4" is standart
anything else no problem

If this thing comes in at under $3000, under 16 lbs, and isn't champagne or silver, I'm on for sure at end of the year. Bonus would be a full or close to full aperture with no obstruction at 90°, but so many on the binocular forum have expressed liking their current 45° models, that I would settle for a quality 45° model with no problem also.

Thankfully enough US customers have expressed that buying from APM is really no problem as their are at least two options for US service. Thanks again!

This "little thing" really seems on the right track.

A challenger not only for the former Miyauchis, but also for Docter's Aspectems (straight versions with less aperture). I wonder if for exclusive or main star-observing purpose, the right angled will not be preferred to 45° or straight binos?

$3,000.00 is a lot of money...
I'd probably be in at a $2000.00 ceiling for a 45 degree version.

Markus,

Any possibility that these will work with the 20x - 50x Vario eyepieces like the Docter binos on your website?

Hi Markus,
Any teaser of this novelty on the ATT near Essen last week-end? I had finally to cancel my trip.

what do you mean with teaser please ?

BTW I was able to try at ATT if the new Tele Vue Delos works in the 100 mm ED and yes they do well and leave room for screw in filters too

Hi,

Kind of pre-production model or project pictures, the kind of commercial objects or photos you "tease" potential clients with
Re: Delos: that's good news.
Thanks.

Hi, Markus,

You're making it very difficult for me. I've been on the fence between your 100mm ED and the Garrett 100mm. Now I learn about your exciting new 100mm APO coming (near end of this year?).

If the total price with set of good EPs (or of customer choice) and a finderscope or RDF, is not more than $3000, including $200+ for a tripod/mount like Garrett's 5000, then I'm sold. Of course, if the price were closer to $2000, that would be much better.

If it met your design goals and expectations, and it were available today - I'd buy it today!

Please put me on your list (I guess I'd be # 2) for further info and expected delivery times.

If you need to, PM me and I'll send you my e-mail address.

Thank you and regards, Rod

PS - I'm not getting any younger, so please hurry with getting it to market!

...




That's part of the game: first I wanted to get the "simple" 100mm bino, the the ED 100mm came out, the there was this 6 inch bino (over 40 pounds !!!), could not make my mind and now I am glad because the real apo 100mm bino is on its way. Where will it stop?
Any apo projects to go the same way for the 6 inch bino?

Hi Rod

if you want to spend $ 3,000 I am pretty shure we can drop in some very nice eyepiece sets , a mount, a tripod and UHC filters.
drop me a email to anfrage@apm-telescopes.de, so I have your contact datas.

they have a good controle on small 100 mm versions, but my experiece with 150 mm is mixed. But never say no :-)

you can get my Fuji 25 x150-45° ED, then I ask Binoptic to build me a 150 mm APO BINO WITH LZOS OPTICS.

this week our first 10" LZOS Apo Bino should see first light, the owner has left his 8" Apo Bino for sale , maybe you want ? Now he start dreaming about a 12" LZOS Bino , just like my customer in Peking , who ordered already 50% = 1 OTA 12" APO.

So, you see you have some great choices at the moment, speak with your wallet :-)

I could speak to my wallet, but not sure it will answer my questions?
10" apo bino: OMG, what kind of mount will bear that one?
The Fuji is 45°, not sure that I'll be happy with that one, and AFAIK, you can't change eyepieces.
Well, as you know my current needs for portability, these beauties are not for me now.
Scope manufacturer/vendor: what a beautiful job!
Some pics for 10 inch apo bino first light to come?
Greetings.
