Re: A review of the semi-apo prototype?

Posted By Markus Ludes

This scope , made by Jinghua Optics and Electronics Co., LTD is a simple standart achromat. Our German Company TS selling this scopes and this company was at the photokina. We talked with them long time and Telescope Service here biggest Partner discussed with them 2 days all what they offer, what the can do and what they do.
The doing some Maks, they doing the new Meade series 5000 eyepieces, they doing achromats. They dont do SD, or Semiapo or Apo
the images of the link also confirm the color of achromats.

Simply add, the posted info and claim is a false claim, but not new for chinese people

I am sorry
