APM 130/1200 LW f/9.2 Triplet Refracting OTA Telescope

The APM 130mm f/9.2 triple air-spaced Super APO refractor offers up perfect color and spherical correction, and the extra focal length will yield superb, high contrast views of the planets, the Moon, and so much more!

The 130mm (5.12") objective on the APM 1200 Super APO not only pulls in more light than a 4" model, but you can also push the magnification on planets and double stars! The APM 130/1200 will allow you to use any binoviewer/diagonal mirror combination without optical path correctors and still achieve focus due to a sliding draw tube design.

What's more, you get special glass type OK-4 - designed and melted in LZOS - which allows perfect color correction within the visible range of spectrum to be achieved. OK-4 glass similar to fluorite has unique optical parameters. Made of OK-4 apo-lenses (apochromatic lenses) ensure image quality characterized by round-mean-square wavefront deviation not exceeding 0.035 wavelength (532nm).
