The new APO from APM with two-lens FPL 51 optics and massive 3.7 "pull-out
The new APM 152 f / 7.9 impresses with its high performance in the 6 "refractor category. We have succeeded in developing a telescope with high-quality optics and a solid tube at a previously unattainable price. The new 152mm ( 1200mm) ED has doublet optics with OHARA FPL 51 ED glass, the second lens is made of lanthanum in order to obtain maximum correction.


  • Very high quality workmanship and convincingly good optical quality
  • Pure color optics with FLP51 glass
  • Precise 3.7 "extension 1:10 for heavy accessories
  • With f / 7.9 ideal for visual and photographic purposes
  • CNC pipe clamps
  • Carrying handle
  • Very good price / performance ratio

This new, innovative combination leads to an optical performance that is far above the usual in this price category. In order to guarantee the typical, high quality of APM telescopes, each optic goes through an interferometric test at 532nm (green) before shipping.

With its generous focal length of 1200mm, the 152mm ED is an impressive all-rounder. From the observation of close-lying binary stars with high contrast to detailed planetary observations, a new group of enthusiasts will be delighted with the APM quality with this device.

The 152 f / 7.9 includes a wide range of high-quality accessories. The telescope is delivered in a sturdy aluminum case and contains a newly developed, massive 3.7 "focuser as well as CNC tube rings with built-in handle and 330 mm dovetail rail according to the 3" Losmandy standard. A finder shoe is also included.

The well-known APM quality has proven itself in all areas. The new 3.7 "focuser with rack and pinion drive and 1:10 reduction remains stable even under heavy loads and is ideally suited for photography. The generously dimensioned focuser enables absolutely vignification-free photography with full-format chips. The attention to detail can also be found in the enclosed 2 "to 1.25" eyepiece adapter, which has a completely new design that clamps the eyepiece evenly and thus works much better than conventional adapters with a simple brass clamping ring and screw. The focuser is now also a new feature equipped with the new APM 2 "Fast Lock.

As an optional photo accessory for the ED APO 152 f / 1200, we recommend our Riccardi Flattener APO Reducer 0.75xM82 (the focal length is reduced to 900mm at f / 5.9) or our Riccardi APO Flattener Model 2 for APO's. (see recommended accessories) . The new ED apochromatic refractor 152 / 1200mm! Incomparable performance at an incredible price!
