APM 152/1200 Telescope

 

 

The APM 152-1200 Triplet is probably the best 6” Refractor Telescope in the world. Featuring a superb 152mm lens cell crafted for us by LZOS to a minimum standard of 95% Strehl. Each telescope is custom made to order. In addition to the supplied APM 3" focuser, customers have options on Dew-Shield, Back Focus and even paint finish.

With an impressive 1200mm focal length, the 152-1200 is an impressive all rounder. From intricate Double Star observing to high contrast detailed planetary imaging, this scope takes it all in its stride with ultra high quality views. Such superb quality allows for use with quality high magnification eyepieces and barlow’s for crystal clear viewing of even the most distant objects. A true classic.

Imaging accessories for the 152-1200 include a 2.5” ED field flattener which maintains the focal length and a dedicated Massimo Riccardi designed APM Reducer. This changes focal length by a factor of x0.75, resulting in a 900mm focal length and fast f5.9 aperture. We can also offer a special LZOS flattener for use with the 3.5” focuser intended for imaging with medium format / Pentax 6x7 format cameras.
