the FPL 53 that is said to be better than flourite?
- LZOS melt OF 6, they did it and do it still for Silverstar and the after company, they did it for the 355 mm Triplet Korea apo and they do it for the TMB.
Long time ago you told me your apos not made in LOMO, because LOMO cannot polish Fluorite, later it turned out it was a lier and LOMO polished the apos for you
Short time ago you told me all Russian optical companys will get forbitten to make telescope optics, so our suppliers LOMO; LZOS, INTES, INTES MICRO cannot deliver in near future telescopes and optics to us anymore, only Aries. it turned out as a new lier from your side.
Now you say LZOS does not have OF 6 and do not produce OF 6, but its made and it is in the TMb apos
I thought you have some knowledge, but to me it seems, the chromacorr did eat all you have had in your head and nothing remains there anymore , excapt a big black hole
I hope you stop now saying LZOS do not know which glas they making and using in our Optics.
If you continue, than it may becomes neccassary to inform LZOS in which way you talk about them and they may decite to stop due such your liers , delivering glas to you
One more thing: The TMB Apos do not use simple alucells, like others include aries, they use thermocompensated cells

The OF6 was never used in TMB apos.
1. It will not give color correction better than BK8 and K8.
2. It is much more expensive than these glasses. Same expensive
3. OF6 is much more caprise in polishing and coating and iy is
less hard than K8 and BK8.
4. It has 2x smaller expansion coefficient than K8 and BK8 and
thermocompensation in an aluminium cell is a real challenge.
5. LZOS does not melt this glass and never melted.
One can look at www.lzos.ru LZOS website and look at the melted
glasses sheet. The only short flint melted now by LZOS is OF1 and
And Markus and not me claimed here, that LZOS apos do utilize
short-flint and tried to tell this as advantage (unexcisted!)
of TMB -LZOS apos vs others.
Also, APQ and FCT triplets never used short-flint glasses.
They used crown glasses as mate elements to fluorite.
Such claims, like Markus spreading lately, are very close in
the internal sense with earlier SV;s claims about exclusivity
of their achromats. Keep it coming, Markus!
