Zeiss M44 Position Circle
NO LONGER AVAILABLE
(info left here for
The Zeiss M44 Position Circle was
designed to provide a very convenient and accurate means of rotating
reticle eyepieces for precise measurement of double star position
angles. This circle provides 360degree precision rotational
capabilities for any application. Simply loosen the single knurled
lockscrew, and rotate accessories to the desired angle. Works
also as a very handy accessory for adjusting CCD or film camera rotation
(Camera Angle Adjuster). Almost a work of art in itself, the
circle is made of solid Brass, and finished in satin black lacquer with
white filled engraved markings.
The circle is provided with external
M44 threads on the input side, and M44 internal threads on the output.
To adapt the circle for use with the Baader Astro T-2 System, add a
T2-13 (Zeiss Cameraadapter) and T2-09 (Zeiss Inner Adapter).

ZEISS APQ Telescopes
100/640 and APQ 130/1000
|For our own
observing, we have settled on high quality apochromatic refractors as
the best instrument for our viewing conditions. After owning and
using most of the apochromatic scopes available, we have found the ZEISS
APQ (oil coupled Fluorite Triplet) to be absolutely the finest visual refractor we have ever used.
The level of optical quality, color correction, and mechanical
sophistication has to be seen to be believed. The APQ
remains at the pinnacle of modern refractors.
Though now no longer produced, we are periodically able to locate these
rare and exquisite instruments, and offer them for sale directly.
We only handle the most select quality instruments, and provide expert
assistance and support through Baader Planetarium (the Zeiss worldwide
dealer and service support). Please contact us for availability (email).
