APM-LZOS 3-Lenses SuperED with APM 3.7 inch Deluxe focuser - in a new design!


For many years, we have been producing and distributing high end refractors for science, research, public institutions and dedicated amateur astronomers worldwide.
The optics calculated by us be performed the highest quality standards. Likewise, the mechanical components, such as tubes, lens holders and focusers are manufactured with our claim to perfection.

To make APM's high-quality apochromats with the world-class 3-Lenses SuperED Apo optics more attractive, we have decided to offer an APM / LZOS-APO special edition at a  lower price. This is made possible by our new, built-in APM 3.7 Rack and Pinion Focuser.

This pays off not only for our demanding customers, but also for our authorized dealers!



Our LZOS Super ED 3-Lenses are delivered with test protocol, Each optic is individually measured with a Zygo interferometer and logged with the serial number of the Opik.

    Maximum Strehl (as with the Zeiss APQ) is guaranteed at 95% or better
    Minimum optimized residual chromasie
    Temperature compensating lense - housing

The tube:
Well-known APM construction as fast cooling down aluminum tubes

APM 3.7" Rack and Pinion Deluxe Focuser:
The new 3,7" focuser is a Rack and Pinion type, with 1:10 focusing. It remains rigid under high loads making it suitable for imaging. The attention to detail extends to areas like the 2" and 1.25" eyepiece adapters. These use a new design of collar clamp, far superior to the common brass compression rings found on lesser designs. Also new is our 2" APM  Fast Lock adapter now .
