APM's MS ED binos are FK61 doublets.  Never heard that any are triplets.   Does it matter?  shrug.gif

How much fun to speculate when the OP doesn't give enough information :-\

Here's my go: perhaps a discontinued APM version of these? https://www.teleskop...od-Adapter.html

Hi Mark9473; The only thing I was wanting to know are they any good. For me I will get Oberwerk binos. I think everyone knows the reputation. For sure I will keep my money in the USA.

Thanks Bill

They are (and Oberwerk doesn‘t currently have anything comparable in size 20x80).

Has anyone done any research or know how the APM 20X80 ED APO  Triplet  compare to the Oberwerk 20X80 Deluxe III triplet?

 

Thanks  Bill

Bill, do you have a link to this APM 20x80 ED apo triplet your'e talking about; I've never heard of it, nor do I see such a bino on APM's website.  Do we have to keep guessing what you're referring to?   question.gif

Hi Rich; I have seen it on their web site several times. Try typing in 20X80 ED Triplet binoculars.
I think that is how I found it.

Thanks Bill

Hi Rich; I just found the problem. I went to their web site and I goofed and instead of saying ATM I put APO. It was my fault on this post. What I was after was trying to find out are Oberwerks 20X80s Triplets the same
basic Bino as APMs and I think they mostly are. If I buy any binos It will be from someone in the good ole USA.I am almost positive on the Oberwerk 25X100s with the Farpoint mount on the Oberwerk 5000 series tripod not far off. Waiting for a law suite to get done. Sorry for the mistake.

Thanks again Bill

Bill, as I understand it, the two options you're considering are the Oberwerk 20x80 Dlx III and the APM 20x80 MS ED.

 

The Oberwerk is stated to be a triplet but it's only an achromat; no ED glass.  The APM MS ED is a doublet "apo" using FK-61 ED glass.  Just because a bino is a triplet design, that does not mean it is an "apo".

 

If you want the best correction of CA on bright night time objects like the Moon/planets and for daytime use, the $780. APM would be the best choice.  Its ED doublet design will show noticeably less CA than the Obie achromat.  The Obie is less than half the price at $350.

 

Both can be purchased from US dealers;  Oberwerk or Outdoor Sports Optics for the APM.
