And Alvan, let's be honest here, do you really like the darkness of an exit pupil of little more than 0,4mm?
I don't, that's for shure. Even 0,5mm is much too dark for my likings!




I wasn't recommending any particular power. People have their own preferences. The objective lens provides all the information/detail/resolution. Once you have magnified the image enough to see all that detail, there is no need for further power. This has been referred to as 'empty' magnification. However I don't think more power hurts or causes loss of detail as long as the "seeing" conditions allows it.

airfreight cost 5 times as much as sea freight, so we go by seafreight, otherwise we have to ask higher price

when shipment goes out I know when I get it, should be soon

Hi Marcus,

Are you also now selling the lens in cell w/adapter in the US?

I have not seen (or I missed) any mention of this option for quite some time.

Never mind - I just found it on your web site, but I notice that the delivery time is listed at 9-15 months. Is this correct?

Hello Markus,

Congratulations on your new APM 6" f/8 ED Doublet Refractor project!

I have a question: If an order for this telescope were placed with your U.S. dealer (OPT Inc.) wihtin a week from today, How long would it take for it to be delivered?

Would this order be in the first production run of 50 pc telescopes? Else, How long for the next production run?

Thank you in advance!

Hi Castor

I just follow the thread on the refractor forum where i cannot post.
So far 3 pc 152 ED has been delivered, one to james in Asia and 2 pc to UK. next 3 piece arrive next days , again 2 pc going to UK, one stay short time in my hands.

Most of the production work has been done, but the Lanthan Glas showed in most of the optics internal stress, so it have had to be replaceast, that what course the actual delay.
At today I can only gues a answere for your question

if you order now, you will be withhin the first production run and my gues of shipping date is about July 2013

Thank you for your reply! I have followed this thread (and the other thread on the refractor forum) with great interest and it looks promissing. Keep up the good work!

Thanks!

Markus, you are the best for getting this going! Can't wait to see the offerings!

(on a side note - any newer news on that apo BT with 90 degree oculars?)

No pressure. Still patiently waiting.




Also interested in hearing about this.
