Me and my AP

Here's my 1986 vintage AP 130 F6 with the famous "NASA Glass". The lens was made in December of 1986 and was signed on the edge by roland. I've updated the scope with a new backplate (D&G) and AP 2.7" focuser.

The lens is exceptionally sharp and the CA is well controled for such a fast scope. It makes an amazing telephoto lens as well.

Hey Jeff,

Yet another nice scope! Sweet!

What a great setup. I wish I could look through one of those but I'm afraid that is one rare scope.

Here's another gem from 1986. This ones an AP130 pre-Starfire F8. I cut the tube back to take my Denks sans OCS, added an AP 2.7" with a D&G back plate. This is a NICE scope. Again sharp, smoooooooth optics, no zones with maybe, maybe, a hint of overcorrection. Color is VERY well controlled despite it being a pre-Starfire, and it's simply not an issue for visual use.
