Product Code:  APM107
Manufacturer:  APM

A truly high-end colour corrected 3 Lens Air Spaced Apochromatic Refractor. The APM 107-700 features an Ohara FPL 53 Super ED Element as part of its APM Design lens cell. The 107-700 was the result of a long development period of both lens cell and tube aimed at providing the optical quality usually reserved for our legendary LZOS optics but at a price normally associated with mass market brands. Did we succeed? We feel the optical report below answers that. Such performance is normally only found in much more exotic scopes, not a volume production scope such as the 107.

The 107-700 is supplied as standard with the excellent APM 3_ focuser. Alternatively, it may be ordered with the Starlight Instruments 3_ Feathertouch focuser. The 3_ focuser permits fully illuminated imaging with sensors of up to 24 x 36mm. Both options offer 360 degree rotation with 1.10 fine focusing and are suitable for high imaging loads.

Imaging accessories for the 107-700 include a 2.5_ ED field flattener which maintains the focal length, and a dedicated Massimo Riccardi designed APM Reducer. This changes focal length by a factor of x0.75, resulting in a 525mm focal length and ultra fast f4.9 aperture. This reducer is offered in tow versions providing either a 40 or 50mm flat image field.

The 107-700 also features a retractable Dew-Shield to help prevent dewing and internal tube baffles with flocked tube walls.

CNC tubes rings, a Vixen style dovetail and aluminium case complete what is an exceptionally we specified and performing scope in its price range.
