APM manufacture the worlds largest range of Apochromatic Refractor Telescopes. Our partners have included Massimo Ricarrdi and the late Thomas M Back (Lens Designs), LZOS, (Lens Manufacture), Matthias Wirth (Tube Designs) and Starlight Instruments (Focusers) to name but a few of the Astronomical communities best who contribute to what makes APM telescopes such superb instruments.

APM Telescopes of Germany have a reputation for quality. We manufacture the largest and best quality range of Apochromatic Refractor telescopes in the world. These range from the the ultimate travelling APO, our 80-480, to the worlds largest Apochromatic refractor, the peerless 510-6500. We also offer custom made specialist reflector telescopes and a range of outstanding accessories to help you get the most from your telescope

APM stands not only for superb quality but also for consistency. All our scopes are aligned and star tested before leaving our facility in Germany. Each of our made to order LZOS apochromats are supplied with an individual optical test report confirming their optical performance is a minimum 95% Strehl. This is normally exceeded.

Apochromatic refractor telescopes are recognised as the ultimate telescopes for imaging and planetary observing. This is due to the sharpness, colour and contrast range they exhibit. Something no ordinary reflector telescope can offer. With an APM refractor you can get the very best Apochromatic Refractor experience available.

In the last 2 years we cooperate with the famous optical designer from Italy " Massimo Riccardi", he designed a triplet airspaced apochromatic Reducer/Flattener from real ED Glas with 0.75 x power in 2 sizes, small size for 42 mm image circle and big size for 52 mm image circle. For the small version you need minimum a 2.5" focuser, for the big version you need minimum a 3" focuser. This Apo Reducer/Flattener prooved himself to be unbeatable in Terms of quality, vigneting and field correction .
