Hi friends
For a long time, I was considering buying the TS-PhotoLine 130/910 refractor from Teleskope-Service.
I was looking for some information and ratings and pictures taken with this refractor, but I didn't find much.
Finally, I decided to buy a telescope.
The delivery was a little late because it was around Christmas, but it didn't matter.
I was a little surprised that the lens from the inside was dusty.
Teleskope-Expres claims that all telescopes are checked and adjusted before shipment.
True, they acknowledged the claim, but wanted to send the telescope back for cleaning, which I did not want.
It would mean another month of waiting for the telescope.
True, this dusting should not affect the images.
I send test pictures that I finally managed to capture and process.
Taken with TS-PhotoLine 130 f / 7 FPL53 Triplet Apo - 3.7 "+ TS-1.0xFlattener + Canon EOS 6D modif .... 120sec x90..800iso..processed in PIXINSIGHT.
Please do not rate the middle !!! I didn't solve that ..
There are such black circular bearings - perhaps some impurity of the optical system.
But I don't like the radial jets on some big stars.
The stars in the corners aren't quite round either.
The first test was not encouraging!

Regards
Alexander

Hello Alexander and welcome to the forums!

 

This posted to the binoculars forum. You should post it in the refractors forum where it will very likely produce helpful responses as the scope in question is discussed fairly often there. It seems most folks like it so there should be some help available.

I was considering that same scope in the near future.

Might rethink that now.

I have the scope, and I love it.  Image.

I bought it from Karl Kloss.  He puts everything on an optical bench and tests it before he ships it out.  Adjusts what he can.  It's his hallmark.  Same price as TS.  Came really well packed.

 

No commercial connection, just a satisfied customer.
