APM - LZOS Apo 130f/9.24 Planetary Apo CNC-LW II
Our latest modell, the answer, to those customers who asked a Super Planetary Apo in the 5" size with a unbeatable optical quality and colorcorrection for extrem powers, usefull for planetary observings and resolution. There is no similar quality in the 5" range on the market. This is our special light weight CNC modell for all who plan to use larger CCD cameras for imaging.
These tubes are made in Germany with non-compromising mechanical
quality. The dew cap slides smoothly over the tube without producing any
paint scratches. The focuser is a full 3.5" size. It rotates smoothly
and with zero image shift. This zero shift rotation is very important
when your camera has already achieved its best focus and you would like
to rotate it to the best position. The finder bracket has a quick
exchange style screw system and is mounted on the rotatable focuser,
which allows focuser rotation to bring the finder scope to the most
comfortable observing position. The focuser comes with large anodized
focuser knobs and moves extremely smooth when racking. The focuser comes
with a screwed on 3.5"/2" adapter and a 2"/1.25" clamp ring style
adapter to protect your eyepieces and diagonals from scratches. The tube
rings are flat on both sides and offer three tapped 1/4-20 inch holes
perpendicular to the tube line with the outer two hole's center to
center spacing of 60mm (2.362"). The center tapped hole can be used for
different mounting plates with only a single center hole. The tube's
internal baffles are matched for a large usable photographic field .
This system with the matched field flattener for full format CCD
offers a image circle of appropriate size.
This TMB 130F/9.24 is not only a wonderfull visual apo for highest power
planetary and douple star observations with highest contrast, but also a superb imaging
maschine. By adding the matched designed full format fieldflattner / reducer it will
offer you pin point stars across the entire field to the outer edges
either by use of new larger CCD cameras or medium format cameras like
the Pentax 6 x 7. Delivered With Order:
