Full specifications:

The APM 152-1200 Doublet Apo is a combination of optics and mechanics that is rare in the 6" Refractor category. We have painstakingly engineered an optical and tube solution to bring you APM quality at an unrivalled price. The 152-1200ED features a Doublet lens cell using ED glass equivalent to FPL-51 complimented by a Lanthanum coated mating element to maximize performance. Our innovative combination of materials and design has resulted in optical performance far beyond the normal for a telescope at this price level. As with all APM telescopes consistency is assured and each telescope goes through an interferometrical test at the 532nm (green) wavelength before shipping for peace of mind. The high quality 152mm aperture doublet ED lens is housed in a thermocompensation lens cell and air spaced with three metal spacers at 120 degree separation for accurate and stable lens centering.

The APM 152-1200ED is also supplied with extensive accessories. Inside the quality Aluminium transport case you will find not only a fantastic value telescope but also a newly designed 2.5" focuser, CNC tube rings incorporating a carrying handle.

Traditional APM quality has been applied in all areas. The premium 2.5" focuser is a Rack and Pinion type, with 1:10 focusing slow motion control. It remains rigid under high loads making it suitable for imaging. The attention to detail extends to areas like the 2" and 1.25" eyepiece adapters. These use a new design of collar clamp, far superior to the common brass compression rings found on lesser designs
