APM Doublet ED Apochromat 152 f/7,9 Telescope complete with Diagonal Mirror on Skywatcher NEQ-6 GoTo Mount
Special Offer: Our new 152 mm ED Apo in a Set with the best known Skywatcher NEQ-6 GoTo Mount.
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 equivalent to 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
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.
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. 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 152-1200
include a 2.5" (Order Nr. TSFlat2,5) field flattener which maintains
focal length. There is also a dedicated Massimo Riccardi designed APM
Reducer (Order Nr. APM-RIRED152-1200S-2L or APM-RIRED152-1200-2L). This
changes the focal length by a factor of x0.75, resulting in a 900mm
focal length and fast f5.9 aperture.
With the new 152-1200ED we
believe we have created an Apochromatic Refractor of incomparable
performance and value in its category.Additional you will get the best known NEQ-6 Skyscan GoTo Mount:
