Kevin seems to have quietly snuck this onto the website without an annoucement: BT-127XL-SD Binocular Telescope.
Our newest and largest XL Series Binocular Telescope features 5″ apochromatic (FCD100 / FK-61 triplet) objectives, with a relatively-short 650mm focal length. The BT-127XL-SD was created to be the highest-performing production binocular telescope on the market, without regard to cost. One look through the eyepieces will convince you that we succeeded. Unlike other large-aperture binoculars, the BT-127XL-SD is remarkably-lightweight at just 25 lbs., and therefore easy to transport and mount. Finished in iridescent Luna Pearl White with anodized silver trim, it’s also quite attractive. Mount it on the gorgeous Oberwerk TR3 hardwood tripod, with silver-anodized Oberwerk fork mount, and it’s a stunning conversation piece for the home or office with a view. The BT-127-XL-SD includes our premium 30x (22mm) 70° AFOV eyepieces. 46x (14mm) and 93x (7mm) are also available.
Accepting orders beginning April 6th for delivery in early May.
on pricing or the fork mount, but if the APM 120-SD-45s retail for US$4000, probably the same territory. (EDIT 1: On closer inspection, the Obies are advertised as "APO FCD100/FK-61 triplet" and the APMs as a "2-lens FPL 53 SD", so these Obies may set you back a lot more!) This probably goes a way toward explaining why the 110 Ultras were discontinued earlier this year too.
EDIT 2: Emailed Kevin, he responded within the hour, these bad boys will retail for $4995.
