There are now (as of 31/07/17) only 21pc additional LZOS 152/8 Triplet lens cells still available. None exceed the optical performance of this example. This is an opportunity to own an exceptional example of probably the finest 6" refractor ever made.

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 a choice of focusers from APM or Starlight Instruments up to 3.5”, 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 the Riccardi designed APM Model 2 Flattener. This provides 1.0x magnification and a 60mm corrected field. Alternatively there is the Riccardi designed APM Reducer. This is available in two versions, the M82 Reducer with 50mm corrected field or the M63 Reducer with a 40mm corrected field. This changes focal length by a factor of x0.75, resulting in a 900mm focal length and fast f5.9 aperture. 

This example is supplied with a Starlight Instruments 3.5" Feathertouch focuser with removable 4" extension. The tube has a carbon effect wrap, CNC rings,12" Losmandy plate and soft carry case. Due to its demonstration nature it has a few minor marks. The optics are perfect.
