Testreport by Mr. Rohr of Production sample 152ED
      #5555131 - 12/05/12 05:14 AM

the second sample = final production sample with new final focuser came in last week and we shipped it to Mr. for testing

the testresult can be seen here

http://www.astro-foren.de/showthread.php?14758-APM-ED-Apo-150-1200-Design-D-D...

The telescope can be found in our shop here :
http://www.apm-telescopes.de/en/Telescopes-/Refracting-Telescopes-OTA/Apochro...

Non europeans pay not our European price, they pay less due customs and VAT savings.

If you want one , drop me a email, price with shipping for foreigner customers is US $ 3,990.00


here a picture of the new and final focuser, which has now also a 2" collet clamping

delivery of first big production run start in March 2013, pre-orders with 10% deposit are accepted now for the telescope but also for the lens in cell with adapter for your own achromat tube

If you right click on the article, you should get an option to translate the page. It works in IE9 anyway.

Same here. Might have to beef up my CG5-GT though.

Markus, How does the Lens Cell replacement work? I have a C6R, will the swap be a simple thread off, thread on, or do I have to actually insert the ED glass (which involves shimming and collimating)

Mike

No luck with translation. I clicked on the German to English but nothing happened. Rather frustrating. David

I've tried numerous Google translations from German and Japanese to English.

A guessing game at best, as to what is actually being said.

Hi Guys

1, the swap will work as follow:
- we have our ED Apo lens in cell with push pull flange from the OTA scope.
the USA Price is firm at US $ 1,990 for above

we offer to mashine a second adapter which goes on your excisting scope and allow our cell to be screwed on and aligned.

Hi All...

This is how the new 152 APM ED APO lens cell looks like when you remove the dew shield....
