Markus, thanks for updating the delivery time on this scope. Since I went through the USA dealer, maybe looking at April/May delivery? That is right on the promised schedule. Very good news.

Only ten units out of first fifty unclaimed? For a 'new' 152 offering not bad so far?

We got another final solution and improvement done onthe 152: we have now finished the focuser and i am happy to say that the final focuser is as good as the worldbest focusers out and our new clamping system is by far the best design on the worldmarket

Markus, I will be looking for a 3" focuser. Is this one 2.5"? If so, will the improvements be expanded to your 3" focuser?
When you have specs and photos to publish please let us know. Are the mechanical dimensions identical to the ones in the diagrams in your site?

the latest and finaly 2.5" focuser is shown now on our webside http://www.apm-telescopes.de/de/Teleskope/Linsenteleskope-Optik/Tubus/Apochro...

and is one of the best focusers in the world
a 3" focuser still can be ordered as upgrate, no problem

If you go to the link that Markus put up just above your post, you will see that the focuser appears to have 90mm of out travel capability. It is a beautiful looking focuser. If Markus has been able to duplicate the feel of the very famous Feathertouch, he is going to pose some interesting challenges a venerable parts supplier that has helped him and many other telescope makers have incredible products.
