For sale are a pair of the APM 70mm Triplet APO Binoculars with 70mm Objectives (400mm FL) and a 90° viewing angle (nicer than the 45° viewing angle when viewing items near the Zenith!). Included are a pair of the APM 18mm Flat Field eyepieces and bolt cases to protect them.

The Binoculars are in PRISTINE/AS NEW condition and show no signs of use (they were only taken out one time). They will ship in a Pelican 1460 hard case which perfectly protects these binoculars. The binoculars have a convenient carry handle and large objective caps. Also, I will include a standard Synta-base adapter for attaching a laser/optical/red-dot finder (finder not included in sale).
The optics are completely clean and feature extremely well-corrected Triplet Apochromats. There is no observable color on bright stars, and the optics are so good that I was able to split both pairs of Epsilon Lyrae with a 2mm eyepiece in each barrel!

The collimation is spot on and given it will be packed in a Pelican case and then wrapped in bubble wrap - the collimation should hold for shipping (although pickup is always preferable with optical equipment). The included 18mm Flat Field eyepieces provide a sharp 22x with a 65° AFOV and a 3° FOV. I have used these binoculars with a pair of 4mm Stellarvue eyepieces (not included in this sale) for 100x which provided stunning closeup views of clusters and the planets.

These APM Triplet binoculars including Pelican case are up for sale at just $1,395 plus shipping (probably around $60-$100 to most CONUS). Farpoint shows these binoculars at $2,034 and currently out of stock - not surprising as they have received superb reviews on Astromart and Cloudy Nights. The Pelican case itself was $159.

PayPal payments need to be made to a DIFFERENT Email address, so contact me to request PayPal address.

You can contact me to get a shipping quote (just include your full address), or you can pick this up locally anywhere within the general area of central Texas (I live in Fredericksburg, near Austin, San Antonio). I would be happy to drive up to 100+ miles to meet a purchaser.

The first person to send an email saying "I'll take it" will get these fine binoculars.
