TS 150EDF 150/1200 mm FPL53 / Lanthanum Glass Doublet APO Refractor
The TS 150EDF is our largest ED doublet refractor. It has the same optical design as the successful Photoline 125 mm f/7.8 apo. The inexpensive yet powerful optical concept makes this dream telescope affordable for amateur astronomers. Whether you are interested in solar and planetary photography and observation, or astrophotography of nebulae, star clusters and galaxies, this telescope will give you a very good performance.

The advantages and features of the Photoline 150 mm f/8 Apo:
Well corrected, air-spaced doublet objective - special glasses FPL53 (from Ohara) and lanthanum glass
Temperature compensated, fully adjustable metal cell
2.5" dual-speed RAP Photoline rack and pinion focuser - holds accessories up to 5 kg
Direct M68 and M63 female threaded connection for correctors and reducers for astrophotography
Working distance 130 mm from the 2" receptacle, so you can easily get into focus with common accessories - 230 mm without extension
Sturdy aluminium tube with internal baffles
CNC tube rings with Losmandy style dovetail bar
Weight only 9 kg with a length of 1.1 meters - so the apo is still very portable
Each apochromat is tested and optimally collimated on the optical bench by Teleskop-Service before shipping, so you have an optimal telescope for your application from the beginning.
Upon request and for an additional charge, we will send along a photographic test documenting the clean stellar imaging of the apo. An image focal, extrafocal and intrafocal and a Ronchi image is included. The apo will then get a TS serial number.


An ultimate 2.5" focuser in the high-end range:



The 2.5" RAP focuser is designed for photography with heavy cameras and for observation. The focuser holds camera-side accessories up to about 5 kg without causing tilting. The illumination by the focuser is sufficient for full frame sensors.
Adjustment via rack and pinion - no friction - no yielding as with a Crayford focuser
M68x1 and M63x1 female threaded connection for further adaptations
self-centering eyepiece and accessory adapter for 2" and 1.25"
360° rotation for optimal positioning of the camera is built-in
Dual-speed for accurate focusing is built in
Motorized adjustment can be retrofitted




Recommended correctors for astrophotography:



TS 2.5" full format corrector and field flattener - TSFLAT2,5
The focal length is not changed.
Recommended distance from the M69 connection thread of the corrector to the chip: 87 mm
The corrector fits right on the focuser




TS 0,79x PHOTOLINE focal reducer and corrector - TSRED379
The focal length is reduced to 948 mm, the focal ratio improves to f/6.32
Recommended distance from the M48 connection thread of the corrector to the chip: 55 mm
The corrector fits right on the focuser

Report on the new 150 mm TS F8 SD APO

At the beginning of February 2020 I was faced with the decision to buy a 6" with triplet design or the new TS 6" SD-APO doublet with Lanthanum / FPL 53 combination. Since I have a 5" TS SD F7.8 Dublett APO with the same glass combination in use and I know the qualities of this SD-APO device, the decision was easy. The new 6" SD-APO is with 9 kg (incl. tube rings) very light and the cooling time of the lenses is very short because of the doublet design.

After a few mails with Wolfgang Ransburg the new 6" SD-APO was delivered well packed at my place in the middle of February. The new SD-APO will be placed next to my TS 14" RC on an EQ8-R. To make sure that it is carried safely, I made a new dual base plate for the EQ-8. The two telescopes can now be fine balanced in both axes.

After the new 6" SD-APO was installed on the EQ8-R, I checked the optics for alignment with a Grabowski collimator. The cell seems to be very good, because the optics is very well adjusted.






Visually I was able to test the new 6" SD-APO on the moon with Baader Bino and 18 mm APM UFF eyepieces and I was thrilled. In focus no approach of color. Positive is that I don´t need a GPC on the binoviewer for the 6" SD-APO, because it has the right backfocus.
Because of the bad weather I had the opportunity to test the new TS APO photographically only on 27.03.2020.
Here I used the possibility to expose M42, even if it was already very low.
As camera I used an EOS RP/A with IDAS LPS P2.
9 x 300 sec at ISO 800; 20 x flats; 20 x bias
Like the whole week, the transparency was very poor. The exposures were stacked with APP and denoised with Denoise Prof. More was not done with EBV on the image.
I think the price-performance ratio of the new 6" TS SD F8 APO is excellent and I am looking forward to taking pictures of many exciting objects in the night sky over the next years.
