The newly released update to the classic APO200FL will feature key design changes to optimize color correction and will be known as a “super” planetary telescope.

It will use an air-spaced doublet design and longer focal ratio to delve deeper into the skies. Yuri says, “it is about bring back the beauty of long refractors to your backyards, public clubs, school observatories, etc.”

Testing and Quality Assurance

TEC Telescopes go through rigorous testing to ensure top quality performance. Newtonian Rings are used throughout the glass production process and we then use an interferometer to correct any remaining imperfections. Every telescope is then tested vigorously to reach the most optimum Strehl ratio possible. Rest assured that your telescope has been optimized to be as optically perfect as possible. If the objective does not reach Yuri’s expectations, the telescope will not be shipped. As a strict policy, TEC will not release telescope test reports. 

While the objectives are fine-tuned under interferomerical control to meet the highest optical standards, cosmetic imperfections may exist in the objective and the tube assembly. Please rest assured that any imperfection in the telescope has been determined not to affect the optical performance.
