The 120mm optics have excellent spherical correction and the rear element of the doublet lens cell makes use of OHARA FPL-53 SD Glass. As you would expect from APM, the color correction, contrast and transmission are outstanding. Each pair of binoculars are subject to bench alignment to a minimum 100x magnification. Before shipping to a customer we visually test each pair and supply them with a QC report.
Only APM optical bench align each pair to 100x magnification to ensure the perform at their very best. This is an important factor to consider when choosing binoculars capable of higher magnifications. Factory alignment can be very approximate and inconsistant. APM and ourselves have learnt this! Therefore we hand align each pair of binoculars to ensure that our customers get the most out of their purchase. In addition to the standard 2 year warranty the UK distributor also offer an additional 3 year mechanical warranty in the UK once the purchase is registered on the apm-telescopes.co.uk website.
Supplied with the binoculars are a basic set of 18mm 65° (36.6x magnification) eyepieces so you can start observing immediately. The focal position was chosen so that 1.25" Tele Vue Delos, DeLite, Nagler, Panoptic, and Docter eyepieces can all be focused. Other features of the 120mm APO Binoculars include integrated sliding dew shields with front cover plate, carrying handle with sighting device and a tripod adapter with combined 1/4" and 3/8" thread.
