TMB 80 Images
- The below URL's lead to some images I took last week in the Canary
Islands with my TMB 80
There are more to come when I get round to processing them.
I was delighted with the performance of the TMB 80 (in fact all the
kit I used). Its a great portable scope and ideal for widefield CCD

Please don't get upset. I neglected the fact that the eyepieces come
from berliner glass, the german manufacturer, and not from LZOS who
makes most of the TMB telescope objectives.
But if (if!) the new eyepieces turn out to be the best in the world,
wouldn't you like to share a part of the admiration with your
it was just my reaction on the story of one of the members speaking
about the glorious triumvirate of Tom,Markus and the TMB groupmembers,
forgetting about the "men in the (german or russian) street", making
his modest living in a factory producing your nice optics.
I do not see why this reasoning should be interpretated as
an "assault" on TMB!
I even said very nice things about your scopes in the TAK group
recently, so please don't react so emotionally.
But you will never see me reacting like this:
"snip....I haven't had the opportunity to use them yet but I'm sure
these eyepieces are destined to be true classics in the amateur
astronomy world and will be in high demand once word spreads. Looking
forward to the observing reports from the "chosen." THANKYOU, TOM
BACK! (Yes, I *am* shouting!)...snip"
That is tmo an assault on the intellectual capacity of amateur
astronomers! (even if it sounds maybe flattering to you at first
glance, i doubt if you honestly can appreciate people using you as if
you were a gourou.)
Just imagine one reacting like this to the maker of a car, before
making his test-drive!
It would be very appreciated too if you could help me out when i ask
a serious question about the photographic use of one of the bigger
TMB scopes. Those questions were made, because of real interest that
i and others have in TMB/APM products.
