The APM 152-1200 Doublet is a mold-breaker in the 6" Refractor category. We have painstakingly engineered an optical and tube solution to bring you APM quality at an unheard price. The 152-1200ED features a Doublet lens cell using ED glass of FPL-51 complimented by a Lanthanum element to maximize performance. Our innovative combination of materials and design has resulted in optical performance far beyond the normal for a telescope of this price. As with all APM telescopes, consistency is assured and each telescope goes through an interferometrical test at the 532nm (green) wavelength before shipping.
With a generous 1200mm focal length, the 152-1200ED is an impressive all-rounder. From intricate double star observing to high contrast detailed planetary views, this new scope will introduce a whole new group of Astronomy enthusiasts to APM quality.
The new 152-1200ED is also supplied with extensive accessories. Inside the quality Aluminium transport case you will find not only a fantastic value telescope but also a newly designed 3.7" focuser, CNC tube rings incorporating a carrying handle, 330mm Losmandy style dovetail, and finder bracket.
Traditional APM quality has been applied in all areas. The new 3.7" focuser is a Rack and Pinion type, with 1:10 focusing. It remains rigid under high loads making it suitable for imaging. The attention to detail extends to areas like the 2" and 1.25" eyepiece adapters. These use a new design of collar clamp, far superior to the common brass compression rings found on lesser designs.
With the new 152-1200ED, we believe we have created an Apochromatic Refractor of incomparable performance and value in its category.
