Zeiss 200mm semi-apo refractor 2500mm FL on AM

Anyone have any info, opinions or otherwise on this?
I keep going back to a couple years ago Markus Ludes/APM had this (or something like this) available on the website.
Word is that its been on UK forums for a bit available for a new owner.
Same one?
I almost said 'what the hell' when APM had one like this a ways back.
I still am...
But then I'm still on the cusp of the APOMAX that came around a short while ago.
Evidently...if it's an old design long tube with a lens on the end I'm biologically determined to inquire...

Hi Patrick,

These tend to have some resemblence to a color TV, although with smooth and good optics :-)

The smaller ones are much better, especially the 110mm AS, the 130 AS is around the limit of the design. If you like Zeiss, an AS200 would be OK of course.
