The top-class FeatherTouch 3.5 "from Star Light Instruments is again used as the focuser. The tube is made of aluminum as standard. With our optimization, the weight sinks to just over 13kg, which is considerable for such a look and back-friendly.
LZOS conducts its own glass research / development and also produces these glasses itself. This results in perfect control of every development stage. APM has been a partner for civil optics for decades and can actively participate in the development of optics, which contributes to the optimization and adaptation to the needs of professional and amateur astronomers.
The classic 6 “opening (152mm) with a focal length of 1200mm is very popular and was launched by all well-known optics manufacturers worldwide. APM can deliver the very high quality Triplet SuperED apochromats at short notice and at very attractive prices! There are neither delivery times of several years nor bitchy optical designs that have to cool off for half a night.
The 6 “inch is a great device, both visually and photographically, which can be used universally. The focal ratio of f / 7.9 allows a relatively "slim" optical design with rapid cooling as well as excellent chromatic and spherical correction. The 152mm opening offers 2.5x more area than a 4 "device and around 50% more area than a 5-inch device. Separate the closest binary stars with colored components, break them up into globular clusters and observe the finest planetary details. Photographically you dive deeper into groups of galaxies, high-contrast photography (e.g. with narrowband filters) or larger objects using a reducer are a pleasure.
In addition to the large 3.5 “FeatherTouch focuser, all the important reducing adapters are already integrated in order to conveniently connect both photographic and visual accessories. Pipe rings are standard, as is the finder bracket.
A wonderful high-tech device that you can help design!
