APM LZOS 105mm Triplet APO f/6.2 3.0″ ZTA
The optics of the APM LZOS 105mm Triplet APO f/6.2 3.0″ ZTA possess such exceptional chromatic and spherical correction that, in excellent seeing, you’ll be able to push magnification beyond traditional extremes for planetary and double star observing with the greatest of contrast and resolution. For imaging we recommend, based on our customers’ experiences, use of a TeleVue 0.80x field flattener/reducer for best edge performance.
China and Taiwan are overflowing the market with apochromatic telescopes, now up to 6″ diameter. That’s hurting the sales of all world class apo makers. APM-Telescopes decided to manufacture a new design of our apochromatic refractors.
The focuser is our new 360° rotatable 2.5″ APM rack and pinion focuser with 1:10 micro focusing. The rotation enables you to bring your photographic equipment in the required position.
The much lower price is a result of this new design but also of the reducing of our dealer margins.
The tube is made by APM in Germany, 1 by 1, so we are able to accept your special wishes, which can be:
- Dew shield: fix or moveable
- Any kind of color paint
- Standard back focus: 220 mm, if you wish we can make more or less back focus.
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.
The Russian glass specialist manufactures the high quality lenses and lens mounts for the APM Apochromats. Besides grinding and polishing, this work also includes the sophisticated application of multicoatings by vapor deposition.
