APM - LZOS Apo 228/2050 CNC - LW IIWe have a last one of these Apo, after this you have to wait for a long time. LZOS is building a new company to make the raw material for there Apos themself. So the Apos with size 203 mm and more can´t be ordered before end of 2015.
The 228mm Apo is of a size which is really no longer transportable,
but rather is an observatory class telescope. Its optical quality and color correction are as perfect as with our smaller models. New observing thresholds are crossed with an instrument of this size
class and quality. You will see the planets with details as you can see
only on the very best CCD images. As well, it's an excellent CCD imaging
machine in its own right.
The 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 an 2" / 1 1/4" clamp ring style adapter
to protect your eyepieces and diagonals from scratches. The tube rings
are flat on both sides and offer five tapped 1/4 inch holes
perpendicular to the tube line with the outer hole´s center to
center spacing of 3.2" and 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 useable photographic field.
This system with the matched field flattener for full format CCD chips
and film cameras up to 6x7 cm offers a image circle of appropriate size.
Since this Apo is also rather front heavy, when you place your
order we offer the installation, to the rear inner portion of the
tube, the proper weight for the balancing point of your choice.
That work cost some additional money. Please talk with us about this Delivered With Order:
