APM Telescopes


The APM 180-1260 Triplet is of uncompromising optical quality. The APM-LZOS 180/1260 is made to a minimum 96% Strehl. Customers have options on Dew-Shield, Back Focus and even paint finish specifications as all 180/1260 Telescopes are made to order.

With an impressive 1260mm focal length but large 180mm aperture the 180-1260 offers a very fast F7 focal ratio for its focal length. It will allow you see planetary detail like you have never seen before. Deep sky objects have a new clarity and star clusters become almost 3D in appearance. The 180-1260 is a truly exceptional instrument.

With its large aperture, the 180-1260 is well suited to imaging. Its superb Starlight Instruments 3.5" Feathertouch focuser is ultra smooth and can cope with the heaviest of imaging loads. Two dedicated imaging accessories are made for the 180. The first is an optimised field flattener with 60mm corrected field, the APM Model 1. The second is a Massimo Riccardi designed APM Reducer. This changes the effective focal length to 945mm and focal ration to an ultra fast F5.25. The reducer is a fully Apochromatic design using ED glass. It is available in either 40mm or 50mm corrected field versions
