APM Doublet SD Apo 140 f/7 FPL53 Optical Tube
The new APM 140mm f/980mm Doublet is a mold breaker with high quality. We have painstakingly engineered an optical and tube solution
to bring you APM quality at an unheard price. The new 140- SD Apo
features a Doublet lens cell using SD glass FPL-53 to maximize performance. Our
innovative combination of materials and design has resulted in optical
performance far beyond the normal for a telescope of this price. As with
all APM telescopes consistency is assured and each telescope goes
through an interferometrical test at the 532nm (green) wavelength before
With 980mm focal length, the 140-SD Apo is
an impressive all-rounder. From intricate double star observing to high
contrast detailed planetary views, this new scope will introduce a
whole new group of Astronomy enthusiasts to APM quality.
Traditional APM quality has been applied
in all areas. The new 2.5" focuser is a Rack and Pinion type, with 1:10
focusing. It remains rigid under high loads making it suitable for
imaging. The attention to detail extends to areas like the 2" and 1.25"
eyepiece adapters. These use a new design of collar clamp, far superior
to the common brass compression rings found on lesser designs. Of
course, if you would like to use a Starlight Instruments Feather Touch
(model FTF3035B-A) then this can be supplied as an option, for that
reason the tube end has an thread M109 x 1 and M95 x 1 to accept a 3" or
2.5" Starlight focuser.
Imaging accessories for the 140-980
include a 2.5" (Order Nr. TSFlat2,5) field flattener which maintains
focal length. There is also a dedicated Massimo Riccardi designed APM
changes the focal length by a factor of x0.75, resulting in a 735mm
focal length and fast f5.25 aperture.
With the new 140 mm SD Apo we
believe we have created an Apochromatic Refractor of incomparable
performance and value in its category.Delivery contains:
- Optical Tube
- 1 Pair of Tuberings with handle
- 2,5" Focuser with 1:10 Microfocusing
- Losmandy-Style Dovetail
- Shoe for Finderbracket
