Large aperture matched objectives are available for self-build projects.
We consider only one type of binocular in regular production to be of suitable quality to recommend for serious observation - the APM 100/120ED Apos.
The 100ED-APO is an APM development to produce a true Apochromatic binocular without minimal false colour and excellent spherical correction.
It’s performance mirrors that of a real 100mm ED Doublet Apo telescope but with greater light gathering capacity. Featuring the newest broadband multi-coating technology, the 100 ED-APOs split double stars with ease and provide detailed views of the Sun (using suitable white light filters), Moon and Planets, all with an incredible 3D like realism that literally adds a new dimension to observing.
As standard it accepts 1.25" eyepieces via its twin self-centering eyepiece clamps mounted to independent helical focusers. The Binoculars are supplied with a pair of 20mm SWA eyepieces. When used with a premium eyepiece like Tele Vue’s Panoptic 24mm, sharpness is pin point to the edge of the view with superb contrast.
A recommended optional extra for the 100 ED-APO Binoculars is a high quality metal bodied red-dot finder that fits neatly on to the carrying handle of the binoculars. This excellent finder allows for very easy location of targets, even at the high magnifications.
The 100 ED-APO Binocular has also been made practical. They are magnesium bodied for lightweight with extendable dew shields. Collimation is easily handled by a special adjustable prism arrangement at the rear. Finally a useful carrying handle and 1/4” tripod mount make for a compact easy to transport observing system with superb optical performance.
The 100 ED-APO Binoculars light weight makes it suitable for use on a wide range of photo tripods and heads. For optimum performance we can offer premium Alt-Az systems plus those with built in encoders and push - to functionality.
Available in 45 or 90 degree formats at same price.
An additional extra high power collimation service is available for 180x magnification.
