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?

 

Garret

do it! Large binoscopes are the way to go if you want to do visual astronomy with both eyes and a wide range of magnifications and FOVs

Hi Garret, have you already done it? 
 

No? Do it.  You will not regret it.

Hi Garret, have you already done it?

 

No, still not decided if should sell my imaging gear.

Last week signed for a new home, it will be build in one of the "darkest" parts of the Netherlands, I will do all the technical installations as well all tiling and paintwork, etc.

So also no time to build a new telescope, foundations, shed/ dome etc.

This is beautiful, and I can only imagine the views are the same.

 

One day I would love to own something like this as my only instrument, with a few pairs of handhelds to compliment. smile.gif

Hi Charon71,

 

I did not see this thread until just now... a beautiful binocular that, if I am not mistaken, I had the chance to look through at the ITV in Gedern earlier this year grin.gif cool.gif

 

A truly wonderful instrument waytogo.gif

 

Those pictures look like they are from the Emberger Alm in Kärnten. There you have the perfect skies for them smile.gif

 

-Matt

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.

Congretualtions also from my side, a very nice, dream  binoscope. I had a chance to see last year at the Herzberg star party. So you also like the Masuyama 32 mm, I think  they are awsome for binoviewing.

 

Thomas

I too am just seeing this thread. What an amazing instrument! I hope it gives you lots of joy and amazement.

 

Is the IPD measurement easily adjustable? Do you know what the minimum IPD is?

The EMS-UXL units have a helicoid adjuster built in between the first and second mirror that allows IPD adjustment usually from 58mm to 72mm.....

Thanks for the info. Since my IPD is 59mm I will now be forced to come up with some other excuse to not dream about acquiring an instrument like this.flowerred.gif
