APM 7mm 100 deg eyepiece


Recommended Posts

I'd still like to know if these are the same optically as the Myriad / William Optics 100's. Until the 7mm was announced the focal lengths and the specs seemed very, very similar and the build and finish looks the same apart from the eyepiece top section and eye cup :icon_scratch:

I've got the APM 13mm,  the Myriad 3.5 and the 5mm. They look very similar, given the crossover in sizes between the two ranges I'd be surprised if they aren't fundamentally the same eyepieces.

That is a useful addition especially if the quality is similar to the Myriad  range. I have the 9mm and 20mm Myriad which I really rate. If I had not obtained a used 6mm Ethos late last year I would certainly have bought this EP to give me that bit extra mag above the 9mm.

The same KUO XWA eyepieces have been sold under several labels, including William Optics, Stellarvue, Lunt,  APM, Sky-Watcher, etc., though outer barrels have differed.

The upcoming 7mm (due at the end of December) is, as far as I know, unique to APM.

Other focal lengths available: 20mm, 13-13.5mm (depends on vendor), 9mm, 4.77 (labeled 4.7mm or 5mm depending on source), and 3.5mm (also labeled 3.6mm)
