This is the larger of the two most recent additions to APM’s binocular telescope line (which ranges from 70mm to 150mm objective diameter), the smaller one being the APM 70mm ED APO (see separate post).

A good example of the improvements which Chinese optics manufacturers have recently been able to achieve. The APM 82mm competes with long-tablished models such as the Kowa Highlander, made in Japan, or with newcomers such as the Oberwerk BT-82XL-ED (made in China).
