The APM 107 refractor features an Ohara FPL 53 Super ED Element in a triplet configuration. It is a perfect combination of size, aperture and portability. The 3” APM focuser is made in the Far East by a precision manufacturing company provides 360 Degree rotation for camera framing, has a high load capacity and 1:10 ratio lockable fine-focusing knob. The APM 107 also features a retractable Dew-Shield to help delay dew formation and to keep the tube length short for storage and portability.
The APM 107 has a 3” focuser as standard, or you can order an optional Starlight Instruments focuser (please contact us). Both focusers permit fully illuminated imaging with full frame sensors. (Please contact us for automation options).
Imaging accessories for the 107-700 include a 2.5” ED Field Flattener or APM Super Flattener, both of which maintain the focal length. A dedicated 0.75x Massimo Riccardi Reducer is also available, resulting in a 525mm focal length and ultra fast f4.9 focal ratio. Both focuser options provide 360 Degree rotation for perfect camera alignment, high load capacities and 1:10 lockable fine focusing. (Please contact us for options to suit).
