Good evening Friends
First of all I would like to thank everyone in this forum for guiding me through the procedure of finding my astro equipment! I attended as many as I could astrogatherings in my area to have a personal experience of my own looking through telescopes and binoculars ,so I preferred the stereo view 😎😎
And also many many thanks to the APM staff in Germany ,from the polite lady that answered the phone to Mr Buchwald who tested and packed the 100mm Beasts so they came to me perfectly collimated and packed like a fortress ! And last of all I would like to thank the man himself Mr Markus Ludes who answered all my questions and helped me through my decision! Excellent service from APM
So 😀😀 first light for the APM SA 100 Bino! With supplied 18mm apm eyepieces.
Day time : pointed them at a mountain approximately 10km away the view was amazing! Field of view was crisp all the way ! I didn't saw any reflection but noticed very little CA
Night time (2hour session on my roof ,very clear contitions with a lovely crescent moon.
I was stunned by the Pleiades guys really I was speachless the 18mm eyepieces gave amazing view of the Pleiades I was able to observe the cluster clearly pin point stars it was amazing . I'm currently expecting a pair of uhc-s baader filters and I'm sure that the nebulosity will really pop out.
Same goes for the Orion nebula amazing view thought the cloud was faint but I could see it !
Moon was excellent but with a yellow Fringe at times,
What amazed me the most though is that the field of view is Crystal clear and full of stars it's like a 3D movie!😎😎🎉🎉🎉
Now time to save money for eyepieces 😉😉😁 . Note I live in a fairly light polluted area but these beasts are not so heavy as I thought so next observation will be at the nearest mountain about 15 minutes drive 😀
Thank you all
