    Default 338 days to wait on ...



    ... Carl Zeiss Abbe Barlow, Teleskop-Express: Zeiss Abbe Barlow 2x - 1.25" and T2 connection

    Hello all,

    today I have contacted Lothar Bluhm at Teleskop Service about a good apochromatic Barlow to play with.
    This has been his answer.

    Best,

    Hello all,

    they have digged out somewhere at Schott's a piece of some old glass melt, and they want to make a revival of the old design.
    All good, so far. We have already seen it with the Abbe and with the Genuine Orthos at Baader's.
    They came, and disappeared fast.

    Best,
