APM 8" f/6.9 Triplet SuperED Apo


1 pc available now , Serial Nr. 031


The 203mm lenses are also available in 2 versions, the 1420mm focal length measuring 203/1420 CNC-LW II is the f / 7 variant. Do the math: with Riccardi Reducer f / 5.25 !!! A gigantic, non-obstructing astrograph with 8 “aperture and 1065mm focal length. Only APM can supply such optics!


The APM-LZOS Triplet SuperED Apo 203/1420 CNC LW II is quite compact for its size and also fits into smaller observatories. The dimensions are manageable, the performance is phenomenal: The theoretical resolution of significantly less than 0.6 arcseconds can actually be achieved on corresponding nights and that is not a slogan! The excellently polished optics will show details on the planet that you did not consider possible. Observe deep sky objects once binocularly, e.g. M13, M31 or h & Chi Persei, a real treat! You will immediately notice the enormous contrast, this enables detailed perceptions that are not possible with other systems.


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.

This telescope is a gem of every observatory. APM can deliver these very high quality Triplet SuperED apochromats at relatively short notice and at very attractive prices! There are no multi-year delivery times! Due to the excellent optical imaging performance and the fully editable configuration, this apo is also interesting for institutes, research institutions and observatories. The entire telescope is still relatively light at approx. 28kg and can be moved with medium-weight mounts.


In addition to the large 3.5 “FeatherTouch focuser, all important reducing adapters, sleeves and the viewfinder holder are already integrated to conveniently connect both photographic and visual accessories. Multi-compatible pipe clamps are standard, a stable transport box is optionally available.

A wonderful high-tech device that can be tailored to your needs!
