About APM Apochromat
APM apochromats are manufactured according to the highest standards and comply with stringent specifications. As a result of these challenging requirements there are several companies based in different countries who are also responsible for this finish. We are proud that we are thus able to bring the world of astronomy a little closer together and are pleased to present here some background information on the elements incorporated in our telescopes.
