APM Telescopes

The APM 152/1200 is a benchmark observing and imaging telescope. It has an F8 focal ratio, and has long been considered the ultimate performer in the 6" class. The lens cell is an original Thomas M Back design and offers extremely sharp and high contrast views of the sky. As with all LZOS optics, the lens is guaranteed to be a minimum 95% Strehl. When used for imaging where the lens is refocused for different wavelengths, you can expect this level of perfornace at each wavelength. This telescope is offered with a special build aluminium tube which is internally baffled and supplied with a 3.7" Rack and Pinion focuser. Imaging accessories for the 152/1200 include the optimised APM Model 1 Flattener and Massimo Riccardi designed APM Reducer. The latter changes focal length by a factor of x0.75, resulting in a 900mm focal length and fast F5.9 focal ratio.

This special build of the 152/1200 is supplied as standard with an aluminium alloy tube including rings, handle and Losmandy format dovetail. It is fitted with a large capacity 3.7" focuser capable of handling heavy loads. The focuser is compatible with all APM correctors such as the APM Model 1 Flattener and APM M82 Large Reducer. It is also compatible with motor focus units such as the Lunatico Seletek.
