As there are more informations about the new and upcoming APM 120mm APO binoculars available I think it is time to open a thread dedicated to this instrument.
As told before in another thread APM will make a 120mm version of his well known 100mm APO binoculars.
As the small version it will be available with 45° and 90° eyepiece holders and it will accept 1,25" eyepieces.
Sorry guys, no 2" eyepieces this time to keep size, weight and costs in a acceptable range.
But with 24mm Panoptics you will get 2.6° of field at 26x magnification what is for sure very nice with 120mm aperture...
The focal length will be 625mm so it will be faster than the 100mm version.
To get the same optical quality and color correction FPL53 glass will be used this time, instead of FK61 at the 100mm version
The tripod mount will be detachable, so one can install a center mount similar as it is available for the Kowa Highlander.
Here are two pictures of the new 120mm instrument.
I do not yet have the weight, but it is estimated to be around 10 KG (20 lbs)
Best wishes Jochen
