A truly high-end colour corrected 3 Lens Air Spaced Apochromatic Refractor. The APM 107-700 features an Ohara FPL 53 Super ED Element as part of its APM Design lens cell. The 107-700 was the result of a long development period of both lens cell and tube aimed at providing the optical quality usually reserved for our legendary LZOS optics but at a price normally associated with mass market brands. Did we succeed? We feel the optical report below answers that. Such performance is normally only found in much more exotic scopes, not a volume production scope such as the 107.
The 107-700 is supplied as standard with the excellent APM 3” focuser. Alternatively, it may be ordered with the Starlight Instruments 3” Feathertouch focuser. The 3” focuser permits fully illuminated imaging with sensors of up to 24 x 36mm. Both options offer 360 degree rotation with 1.10 fine focusing and are suitable for high imaging loads.
Imaging accessories for the 107-700 include a 2.5” ED field flattener which maintains the focal length, and a dedicated Massimo Riccardi designed APM Reducer. This changes focal length by a factor of x0.75, resulting in a 525mm focal length and ultra fast f4.9 aperture. This reducer is offered in tow versions providing either a 40 or 50mm flat image field.
The 107-700 also features a retractable Dew-Shield to help prevent dewing and internal tube baffles with flocked tube walls.
CNC tubes rings, a Vixen style dovetail and aluminium case complete what is an exceptionally we specified and performing scope in its price range.
