APM Comacorrected 1 1/4" ED Barlow 2.7 x

Designed by Gerd Düring / Germany

Our totally new photo-visual apochromatic Barlow with real ED glass, calculated for the correction of Off-Axis Coma at Newtonian telescopes. This Barlow allows you to observe planets and deep sky objects at the edge from the 1.25" field of view with the same quality as on axis. Especially Dobsonian user will profit because most time the objects are not exactly centered on axis.

The photographic coma corrected field is perfect for APS-C. Because of its unique quality this barlow can also be used with refractors, SC etc. with a image quality, no other Barlow will reach, equal of its price.

Due Forum discussions pushed, Gerd Düring in Germany designed this new, improved coma corrected ED Barlowlens, optimized for parabolic mirrors with f-ratio f/4.

This Barlow uses as ED-element the Chinese ED glas FK61 (similar to Ohara FPL51), the lenses are soft cemented and applied on both sides with a broadband multicoating with over 99 % transmission for wavelength from 400 nm to 700 nm.

The optimal backfocus is 105 mm from center of the last lens. The focal length of the barlow is - 62.9 mm, the clear aperture 22 mm.

This barlow offers with its 22 mm aperture in secondary focus a 100 % illuminated photo-visual field for APS-C when used with 105 mm backfocus.

The 2-part adapter is photo-visual optimized, visual with the optimal backfocus of 105 mm with the new APM-Deluxe Centering Brass-Clamp. This top Deluxe adapter has a length of 55 mm and can be unscrewed, than you get a photographic T2 thread (M42 x 0.75 mm) for use with DSLR with T2 adapter ring.

First results with the ED-Barlow has been amazing!

Although APM is not attending NEAF this year, Markus has supplied me with a few of these coma correcting Barlows, and they will be available for inspection and sale at my booth.

>. . it was great seeing you again.

I feel exactly the same, Sedat. Both of us are always so busy that we never have a chance to sit down and talk about things. The next time you attend NEAF, you are invited to the Saturday night NKD (NEAF Korean Dinner) hosted by Pok Sun (my boss) at a great nearby restaurant. It has become a treasured tradition for many of the vendors, speakers, and attendees, and we can discuss things over some great food and a few glasses of Soju.

Best wishes, Howie
