After saving for decades, I eventually own an Observatory. My child dream…!

The main instrument is a genuine Zeiss APQ 150/1200 APO refractor. I bought the tube directly from the factory just before they discontinued the amateur instrumentation.

This marvelous optic is mounted on an Astro-Physics 1200 mount. This is a mount I would really recommend for very demanding task. It has a 70Kg load capacity, a very easy to use interface (no computer needed) and is very accurate. Now discontinued as well, it remains one of the best mont ever made.
