For Sale
Status: Active  Advert Category: Telescope-Refractor  Advert # 134076
AP130 Starfire EDF from Astro-Physics
For Sale - AP130 Starfire EDF

Considering sale of my fine refractor - Astro-Physics AP130 Starfire EDF. These masterpieces of Roland Christen do not require additional introduction, they are the standard other scopes are judged against ;-)

In summary (and what is included):
- 130mm clear glass aperture in great shape
- f/6 780mm FL (with optional flattener ca 820mm f/6.3)
- AP greaseless 2,7 inch focuser with Feather touch micro-focuser
- 2" and 1,25" output adapters
- pair of mounting rings (few ANSI mounting bolts included)
- finder scope shoe attached
- Retracted length ca 720mm
- OTA weight ca 7kg
- Original transport box from AP

Off course scope is used but very well cared for, I am a second owner, imported from US few years ago. Optics, cosmetics and mechanics in great shape, lens well collimated. Some very slight signs of use.

Roland does not issue certificates for optics, but all lenses are hand figured and star and ZYGO tested by him and the reputed "minimum" standard is 1/8 to 1/10 lambda. Image quality and contrast are legendary. Also, both focuser and lens cell are extremely well engineered, it had no trouble working below -20C (try that with Taks).

For comparison only, on one of the images it is shown aside my FSQ106N (now sold). Amazingly compact and lightweight scope for the size and solid build. Sweet spot for visual and great imaging platform (optional flattener needed for chips APS and above, will illuminate more than full frame chips with perfect stars to corners).

Feels at home on AP400 GTO, Mach-1 or Tak EM-200. Focuser handles flattener, OAG and STL camera with ease.

Mounts, finders, dovetails and other accessories visible on images and not included in this sale, only items listed in the summary.

My price is 5200 pounds and that would include shipping to continental Europe or UK, however I am not sure on the actual value of available insurance, so the insurance may be extra.

Thanks for looking

Price: 5,200
