12

condition: excellent
delivery available
make/manufacturer: Apm Skypoint
model name/number: Galaxy Telescope 141mm

This is the TOP version of BR 141: it uses the eyepieces fold at 90d which is the best solution for astronomical views.
Unlike other giant binoculars this BR 141 has a full collimation on three axis on each optical path, which is accessible from the outside of the binocular so without opening the prisms. This guarantees a quick and perfect collimation in every situation, just like a telescope. If you see on the back of the binocular there are six black spots , three for each prism. These are tiny plastic covers I used to cover the regulation screws that are below (originally the screws were at open air so visible and I so preferred to cover). The adjustment has three axis for each prism making very easy the collimation : just 10-15 minutes in total.
The focusing is micrometric and individual on each eyepiece. Each eyepiece is secured screwing it.
Optical conditions are absolutely perfect . External conditions shows just very minor signs of use
The binocular is supplied together with its LightSpeed Mount, a full-aluminum Alt-Az mount , with micrometric, fully frictioned mouvements in both axis. The mount accepts Passive Computers and it is supplied with a Lumicon NGC Skywector with 4000tics encoders.
The Mount is held by a Manfrotto 161MK2 black, supplied.

The binocular has an opening of 141mm and use apochromat Fluorite lenses to provide the best color correction possible.
The binocular is supplied with two set of eyepieces: 25x and 45x wide field
