The HIGH STREHL version of this telescope can be seen at our premises. (This version is 10% more expensive than the normal version: £6999 + 10% = £7699)

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.

Delivery of this special build will be available from late April 2018. Lens cells may be reserved before this. Please contact us for details.
