3 surface single-coated, eye lens inside multi-coated. It isn't fully multi-coated all element surfaces, it seems.




That looks like the formula for the 'regular' Japanese volcano top orthos, not the Baader Genuine Ortho / UO HD ortho / Kasai Or-HC...at least the BGO definitely seemed to have all air-glass transitions multicoated, from the looks of a hastily disassembled 9mm one.

Hi Makus

Any news on those German made Orthos? When available and what focal lengths? A 20mm would be perfect.

Tim

Hi Tim

the Ortho project died. We running the Supermonos again and to my big surprise we getting way more orders, then I ever expected.
The Ortho project died because we wanted to make something with bigger FOV and higher eyerelief and the star up cost has been just crazy ( aover $ 30,000 for tooling), so w egave up.
Now the new MC coated Orthos coming from japan.

But I may will also start first time ever a run of 18 mm and 21 mm Supermono
