APM Doublet ED Apo-Astrograph 152 f/5.9 - 42mm image circle, ED glass of FPL-51, 2.5" focuser with Riccardi M63 Reducer
The new APM 152-1200 Doublet is a mold breaker in the 6" Refractor category. We have painstakingly engineered an optical and tube solution to bring you APM quality at an unheard price. The new 152-1200ED features a Doublet lens cell using ED glass of FPL-51 complimented by a Lanthanum coated element 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 shipping.
With a generous 1200mm focal length, the 152-1200ED 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.
The new 152-1200ED is also supplied with extensive accessories. Inside the quality Aluminium transport case you will find not only a fantastic value telescope but also a newly designed 2.5" focuser, CNC tube rings incorporating a carrying handle, 330mm Losmandy style dovetail and finder bracket.
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.
Included in the package is the Riccardi M63 Reducer.This changes the focal length by a factor of x0.75, resulting in a 900mm focal length and fast f/5.9 aperture.
