The APM Apochromat 152mm f / 7.9 impresses with its high performance in the 6" refractor category. We have succeeded in developing a telescope with high-quality optics and a solid tube at a previously unattainable price. The new 152mm - 1200mm ED has doublet optics with OHARA FPL 51 glass. The second lens is made of lanthanum to achieve maximum correction. This new, innovative combination leads to an optical performance that is far above the usual in this price category To guarantee the typical high quality of APM telescopes, every optic goes through an interferometric test at 532nm (green).
With its generous focal length of 1200mm, the 152mm ED is an impressive all-rounder. From observing close binary stars with high contrast to detailed planetary observations, a new group of enthusiasts will be amazed by the APM quality of this scope. The well-known APM quality has proven itself in all areas. The reliable 2.5" focuser with rack and pinion and 1:10 gear remains stable even under high loads and is also suitable for astrophotography. Of course, you can also optionally use a Starlight Instruments Feather Touch (model FTF3035B-A) instead of the APM 2,5" focuser. For this reason, the end of the tube has an M109 and M95 thread in order to be able to adapt 3" or 2.5" Feathertouch focusers.
