Say hello to my little friend!

Post by MartinF »

So happy right now! Managed to get hold of a TS-Optics 80mm f/6 triplet APO with a lot of accessories for a REALLY good price (used). Can´t wait to try it out. I´ve had my eye on one of these for a while now and when I saw it for sale I smashed that "buy" button :animals-dogrun: :dance:
The funny thing is that I even made him lower his price (by accident, didn´t mean to), when it was a bargain price to begin with! Without going into exact numbers I got the package for 40% of the retail price and it´s in really good condition (about 3 years old).

Now I´ll just have to wait for some clear skies to see if it works :D

So, I´ve tried it now :) It seems to be performing well, but I still have some fine tuning to do regarding spacing. At least I managed to catch some O3-data with it a few days ago, will post soon.

That scope was a bargain, and it is performing very very nicely indeed.
Good for you!
