    Default any feedback on APM Ultra Flat Field EPs?



    I am considering 18mm 65 deg APM Ultra Flat Field Eyepiece, specs look attractive and superficially similar to Vixen's LVW (8 elements, 65 deg FOV, 20mm ER). Couple of positive reviews on forums.

    APM 1.25" Ultra Flat Field Eyepiece with 65° AFOV - 18mm # APM-UFL18

    Anyone here had a personal experience with one of those?

    Hello Bigzmey,

    here is a comparison APM vs Panoptic for the 24 mm version, should you have a translator on your PC,
    APM 24mmULTRA FLAT FIELD vs TELEVUE PANOPTIC24mm – APM Telescopes Blog
    I did not find any independent review or user report in Germany, and I am also not particularly interested in this product line.
    Best,

    JG
