Japanese Orthos Sold Out

I got huge number of response after the announcement and the trade show. 1st production lot has been sold out. Next lot is expected to come up 3 months. Some dealers might still have several in stock.

Meanwhile all sizes of Astroplan are still available.  Astroplan sometime might be compared with plossel. But it’s slightly different. Astroplan is 5 elements in 3 groups while plossel is 4 in 2. One extra lens flattens the image field and creates about 20% larger AFOV than Abbe Ortho while it is as sharp and contrasty as Orthos.

So you can enjoy Astroplan as wide AFOB Ortho. They are a bit more expensive than classic Abbe Orthos. But you will see such extra benefits.

See current price.

BTW, we made a special adapter for Series 115 system like 125SD based on customer request. This allows to still use a long tube with 0.65x or 0.7x super reducer. This adapter eliminates drawtube.
