|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 typically >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 have stopped supplying the 100/F8, 105/F6.2, 115/F7 and 123/F6 o 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 don't have a fixed pier or observatory setup and I think 4" about as large as I want to go.
The scope is very, very good condition. Comes with 3" Feathertouch Focuser 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
