APM - LZOS Apo 180/1260 CNC-LW II
It will have 5 mm more aperture and a shorter FL, the result being
better transportability and faster imaging speed with a wider
field. The color correction and optical quality will not differ
visibly from the 175 f/8. It will offer you detail on the
planets you may have never seen before. It's an excellent CCD imaging
machine as well. The newly designed, lighter CNC tube permits usage of
this large Apo on transportable, medium sized mounts.
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.
