A limited supply of a fabulous 100mm Doublet binocular with helical focusers to use almost any 1.25" eyepiece.

Offering 25x/50x with the supplied eyepieces but almost any 1.25" eyepiece will come to focus.

Fully multicoated and offering significantly better than achromat performance by the use of ED glass.

Visit the APM America website (click the link in my signature) to learn more and grab one of these from this limited production run.

Expected to arrive in the USA within two weeks!

Hello Glen,

They are manufactured to our specifications.

Glass type isn't something we generally get hung up on. What we expect is a certain performance level and frankly these have exceeded expectation.

I know Markus answered a similar question about glass in the TS127mm discussion in Refractors and our belief is that well made optics will produce outstanding views.

If they aren't any good we won't sell them.

Thanks Morris.

I agree that getting into a discussion about glass type is a dangerous route to take. It is better left alone and let the optical performance speak for itself.
