Description

APM 1.0x Riccardi Universal APO Flattner – Model 2

APM 1.0x Riccardi Universal APO Flattner – Model 1 for APO telescopes was calculated from master optical designer Massimo Riccardi.  This flattener will smooth optical problems in the image circle caused by coma and astigmatism, leading to a similar perfect image quality as on the optical axis itself.  Model 2 is particularly designed for longer focal lengths and slightly slower focal ratios. It currently represents the limit of what is possible.

There is no comparable flattener with such a good apochromatic longitudinal and lateral aberration correction on the market. Other cheaper models fall short significantly, which is already obvious by their significantly higher vignetting but mainly by the drastically higher inferior lateral chromatic aberration.

Universal APO flattener allows a generous working distance from the thread to the focus of more than 115mm (see data sheet), so that all common accessories, such as filter wheels, will find space.

Compatible with the following telescopes and telescopes with a similar f-ratio:

  • APM LZOS Apo 100 F/8
  • APM LZOS Apo 130 F/9
  • APM LZOS Apo 152 F/8
  • APM FPL51 Apo 152 F/8
  • APM LZOS Apo 175 F/8
  • APM LZOS Apo 203 F/7
  • APM LZOS Apo 203 F/9
  • APM LZOS Apo 228 F/9
  • APM LZOS Apo 254 F/9
