I am buying a TS 130 F/7 and wondering if anyone knows if it comes with warranty. I searched the whole website and couldn't find anything. I asked here so people in future will know about it. I am buying from APM and didn't find anything about warranty as well. I appreciate your help.
Also, mine will be the one with 2.5" focuser (the 3.7" is not in stock now). I didn't find anything about the image circle as well, but if it is the same as WO FLT-132, it should be 43-45mm. I am wondering if 2.5" focuser is big enough to cover a full frame sensor with image circle of like 43.5mm. If I knew the drawtube and focuser dimensions, I would be able to calculate the light cone dimensions and its effect, but I don't have those info.
I would wait for the larger focuser myself, but I can't speak to the use of the smaller focuser for imaging.
I've read quite a few posts about the Photoline 130. You're getting an FPL53 triplet at a very good price. There's a guy up here in the NW who has one and claims it is very good. I recently followed a thread where a guy bought one and the optics were off. After many back and forth, they finally had him ship it back, and he now has a perfect scope. Others have noted that TS scopes are excellent, on par with most Chinese imports at this price-point. I don't think you need to worry about the warranty.
One thing you need to worry about is the import duty fee. You will be charged by the carrier (FedEx, UPS, ect). Sometimes they use the wrong code, and the duty fee can be very high, as in several hundred dollars! I would look in to this first.
