Hello binomaniacs and lovers of heavy glass.

 

Today I would like to show my new Matthias Wirth APO triplet LZOS 152/1200 Bino.
Matthias Wirth made this really beautiful telescope for me last year.
A dream has come true for me.
And I dont want to deprive you of this beautiful masterpiece.

 

Thanks Matthias !

 

Here are the technical data:
152/1200 LZOS triplet lenses
The tubes are made of aluminum and powder coated.
The Matsumoto EMS-UXL are adapted to 3 inch FT Focuser.
The weight is without mount and without eyepieces 24.1 kg

 

Unfortunately, i have not so much time to observe with my Bino.
But I enjoy every hour behind the eyepieces.
It is nice to have 6 inches for each eye.
Also the mount Matthias built.  It is made of wood from boat building and is adapted to a Berlebach-Uni tripod.
The handling is easy and precise.  It's just fun to drive through the Milky Way.

My best experience was a look at Jupiter with good Seeing by 4.7mm Ethos and of course and the Veil Nebula by 32mm Masuyama with OIII.
All I can say is, once Bino - always Bino.

Here are some pictures of my dream.

 

Hope u like.

Enjoy.

Yes, it is.  

And for one man to handle it is the limit.

How do you hand guide a 4.7mm eyepiece.the most mag I use in my f8 6 inch binoscope is 2x 10mm vite/svbony 62 degree eyepiece.i have to constantly move it at 120x on my fork mount.by the way these are great binoviewing eyepiece.as sharp as my fujiyama ortho,but much wider f o v.

For me its not a problem to handle the 4,7mm Ethos on my Bino.  And wood absorbs vibrations better than metal. 

That's why tripod and mount are made of wood.

What an awesome instrument, George.  I am very envious thinking of the views it must give you.  Congrat's and enjoy!

 

May pristine skies stay over your head!

Hi George,

 

awesome, plain awesome. Sometimes I think how it would have been to get a large bino instead of my cff185. A dual TEC140 would be so easily in the price range. 

Were are you located in saxonia, I also live there (Leipzig), but my dark site is outside of the town. The pics above do not look like saxonia :).

 

regards

Michael

Hi Michael, thanks.  

I also live in Leipzig. The Pictures are taken in Kärnten ( ITT ) and  Gedern ( ITV ) .

 

I previously had a LZOS 203/1420 Apo.  It was too heavy and unwieldy for mobile use and I sold it.  With the Bino I have much more fun.

 

regards Jörg

Congrats on fine binoscope.  

 

24Kg is a little heavy but I believe it is worth every gram after looking through it at such gorgeous observing site.

I'm actually looking for the 'cheap-skate' version of your superb binocular telescope: APM 152/ 1200 with the same EMS mirrors, still this cheap version is over 10000 Euro's (plus mount!)

I must sell all my imaging gear (which I don't use so much) to afford this wish, I ask myself should I do that?
