Description

APM 152mm Doublet APO Telescope 2.5 Inch Focuser Bundle

APM 152mm Doublet APO Telescope 2.5 Inch Focuser Bundle features an optical tube Doublet lens cell using ED glass equivalent to FPL-51 complimented by a Lanthanum coated element to maximize performance. This innovative combination of materials and design has resulted in optical performance far beyond the norm for a telescope of this price. As with all APM telescopes, consistency is assured and each telescope goes through an interferometric test at the 532nm (green) wavelength before shipping.

Traditional APM quality has been applied in all areas. The included 2.5″ focuser is a Rack and Pinion type, with 1:10 focusing. It remains rigid under high loads making it ideal for imaging. The attention to detail extends to areas like the 2″ and 1.25″ eyepiece adapters. These adapters use a new design of collar clamp, far superior to the common brass compression rings found on lesser designs. The tube also has a thread M109 x 1 and M95 x 1 to accept a 3″ or 2.5″ Starlight focuser.

With a generous 1200mm focal length, this is an impressive all-around system. From intricate double star observing to high contrast detailed planetary views, this scope will introduce a whole new group of astronomy enthusiasts to APM quality.

APM 152mm Doublet APO is also supplied with a slew of accessories. Inside the sturdy aluminum 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.

APM has created an Apochromatic Refractor of incomparable performance and value in its category with the APM 152mm Doublet APO Telescope 2.5 inch Focuser Bundle.
