William Optics 5" FLT 123 F6 Triplet. APM / LZOS Lens with Strehl >0.98. 3" feathertouch focuser
For sale is my 5" William Optics FLT 123 refractor.

This is a mid 2000's scope, back when WO sources some of their top end lenses from very well regarded lens manufactures like LZOS and LOMO in Russia. This scope features a triple lens made my LZOS with a 123mm aperture and 738mm focal length (F6). Although I don't have the lens test report (the previous owner who bought the scope new lost it, I have been told by an APM dealer that they are always >0.98 Strehl).

A full review of this scope here: http://scopeviews.co.uk/WO123.htm

This lens cell was available until the middle of 2017 through APM telescopes however LZOS are no longer supplying APM with lens under 200mm (8") and so this lens is now discounted. An APM scope with the lens cell and a 2.5" or 3.5" Starlight Feathertouch focuser is 6000 or 6500 Euros. http://www.apm-telescopes.de/index.html?key=123/738&lang=en&desc=false&anzahl=20&manu=0&cat=0

I am selling this scope as it's just a bit large for me as I only have a mobile setup and I think 4" about as large as I want to go.

The scope is very, very good condition. Comes with 3" FTF with 3.5" drawtube, William Optics Rings and a soft WO carry case.

I have 2 large boxes for the scope so I am wiling to post. UK postage with UPS, fully insured will be 65. If you are oversees (Europe) then it will be a bit more
Price: 3,900
