There are a few 130mm class apos on the market, some are quite good, most are "inexpensive". However, if you want to tease out the maximum at the theoretical limit on one of the rare, perfect nights here, you need a look that brings that too!

The 130mm f / 6.0 APM LZOS triplet SuperED Apo can be counted among the absolute best in the world in terms of quality and resulting imaging performance. With f / 6.0 (focal length 780mm) it is in the optimal midfield for both visual and astrophotographic suitability. In a few simple steps you can transform this device from a super planetary telescope into a high-quality astrograph. The back focus of 180mm is fully sufficient for binos or the long astrophotographic image train.

780mm focal length are very universal and can be lengthened and shortened with various accessories. This makes the 130 apo a universal high-performance instrument. The high-tech multi-coating and the optimized inner workings of the tube make a decisive contribution to the overall result.

An interferometric test protocol provides information about the exact optical performance data.

The basic equipment of the telescope is already quite extensive and includes e.g. various adapters (see list of accessories), 3 “dovetail, CNC pipe clamps, caps, finder shoe and a sturdy case.

Weighing only 10 kg, this device is still very portable and suitable for travel.

We recommend the Riccardi M82 0.75x Reducer and the Flattener 1.0x - Model 1 to match the telescope. If you have any questions, please contact our customer service directly.
