Purchased new two weeks ago from Markus Ludes at APM in Germany. (Currnenty this apochromat sells for $3,200 plus international shipping plus duty) TMB-100 triplet apo F/8 in CNC tube with custom case, extention tube for bino-viewing, Celestron 9x50 finder, TMB rings, and absloutely brand new Quick Point. I also have the Losmandy DUP plate and custom bolts for this scope which means it is ready to be mounted on the G-11, GM-8, or G-9.
Scope is $2750 firm plus shipping. If you would like the DUP setup, it will run you an extra $110.
Although I've only had two nights with this TMB, those two nights gave really stunning results. Stellar images are simply beautiful and the objective behaves like a minature FCT-150. I could not find color on anything! Not in the daytime either! Has that "snap focus" effect which is a signature of professional optics. I am in love with this TMB, but I need the money for a NJP mount. I am sick and tired of lumbering the EM-500 pier! I do accept paypal. And I will have photos to send upon request. I am up from 10am till 2am PST, but call anytime for information as someone is always up in my home. Thank you.
