I received a email from Bresser (Germany) this morning and thought I would pass on some information.

They are releasing a 90mm f/13 and a 102mm f/13.2 and the new scopes will be going through final QC on 10 April 17 then will be in the European shops soon afterwards.

I do not know if they will be available on the USA market though.

I am not sure what the price of the 90mm is but the price I was quoted so far for the 102mm is 259€

Thanks for the link spongebob, I was part of that conversation while it was going on.

I was just letting people know that there is an actual date the scopes will be showing up now. smile.gif

Sorry Gabby, didn't see your 'eye'.

I emailed ES and they said they didn't have any plans to bring them to the US market.  Oh well.

They will probably have to be ordered either from the Bresser website or APM or even TS. We simply can't find the models from the Bresser Messier AR series with the new focuser in the U.S. Imagine these f/13 ones.

What brand is your 150mm f/5 Newtonian reflector?

Thanks for the update.  I would love to get my hands on one of the 90mms.

I imagine the 4" f/13.5 would be an amazing solar scope for the price.

Hi.

 

I suppose that they will all come with the new 2.5" Hexafoc focuser. Right?

Thank Gabby.  That's awesome.  Many EU dealers ship gray market Bresser models here.  I have a wish list.  I want 6" f/8 and 5" f/9.4 Bresser Messier achromats and if they come out with the 102mm f/13.2, I would love to have one of those as well, provided that they come in the smart white tive with white trim and red details.

 

Regards,

 

Jim
