Featuring the newest broadband multi-coating technology, the APM 100 ED-APO’s split double stars with ease and provide detailed views of the Sun*, Moon and Planets, all with an incredible 3D like realism that literally adds a new dimension to observing.
*When using suitable white light solar filters.
As standard, it accepts 1.25" eyepieces via its twin self-centering eyepiece clamps mounted to independent helical focusers. The Binoculars are supplied with a pair of 20mm SWA eyepieces as standard. When used with a premium eyepiece like Tele Vue’s Panoptic 24mm, sharpness is pin point to the edge of the view with superb contrast.
Included with only the UK supplied (optional elsewhere) APM 100 ED-APO Binoculars is a high quality metal bodied red-dot finder that fits neatly on to the carrying handle of the binoculars. This excellent finder allows for very easy location of targets, even at the high magnifications, these binoculars are capable of.

Collimation is easily handled by a special adjustable prism arrangement at the rear. Finally a useful carrying handle and 1/4" tripod mount make for a compact easy to transport observing system with superb optical performance.
