The APM 152/1200 Apochromat is a very powerful 6 "refractor.
It has a Doublet look with OHARA FPL 51 ED glass . The other lens is Lanthanum . This combination results in an optical performance that far exceeds the usual in this price category. To guarantee the typical, high quality of APM telescopes, each optic undergoes an interferometric test at 532nm (green) prior to shipment.
This Apo is an impressive all-rounder. With the obstruction-free optics at 6-inch opening, the visual observation of DeepSky objects is fun. The focal length of 1200 millimeters, in combination with the crisp image, allows for high contrasts in tight binary systems and great detail in planetary observations.
Of course you will photograph with such a high-quality Apo above all: The new 2.5 "eyepiece extractor with rack drive and 1:10 reduction remains stable even at high loads and is also suitable for photography.
The attention to detail can also be found in the attached 2 "to 1.25" eyepiece adapter, which has a completely new design that clamps the eyepiece extensively uniform and thus works much better than conventional adapters with simple brass clamping ring and screw ,
The telescope comes in a sturdy aluminum case.
