Hello {!firstname},

There is nothing quite like watching the voice talents of the late Boris Karloff (aka Frankenstein's monster from way back)
narrating the tale of the famous Dr. Seuss classic animated cartoon, "The Grinch who stole Christmas" at this time of

Now, your's truly got an email from another "grinch" yesterday, aka Greg Bragg, sales manager from Explore Scientific,
the folks who make some mighty good telescopes and eyepieces down south.

Seems he was nary a bit happy that I had neglected to include this Explore Scientific 127ED triplet apochromat
,  in my list of last minute holiday gifts.

Now true enough, it was an oversight on my part, {!firstname}.

Yes, we have them in stock, and yes, they are on sale right now.

So, in order to redeem myself in the "Grinch's" good graces, I thought I would do the right thing and
send this notice out, and hopefully there will be peace in all the land again.

Here are some more details on the telescope:

Explore Scientific 127mm f/7.5 ED Apochromatic Triplet Essential Refractor Telescope Features...


  • The Explore ED APO telescope comes with a white aluminum tube with black accents.

  • Explore Scientific Air-Spaced Apochromatic Triplets have true APO optic and are diffraction limited at .25PV or better.

  • Genuine ED glass from Hoya Japan is used on all ED APO Triplets at Explore, for superb quality and light throughput.

  • Enhanced Multi-Layer Coatings (EMD) are deposited on optical elements to boost contrast and eliminate light scatter; and contrast is further enhanced with the installation of matte black knife-edge baffles in the optical tube assembly.

  • While refractors seldom require additional collimation after initial factory adjustment, the lens cell design allows for consumer collimation. Sending your ED Triplet off to the factory is always an option, but is not required.

  • Heavy-duty 2" dual-speed focusers.

  • The included 2" diagonal has a precision-polished mirror with enhanced 99% dielectric coatings. A 1.25" compression ring adapter is part of this package.

  • To attach your Explore Scientific Air-Spaced Triplet telescope to a variety of mounts, we have included the "Vixen-style" dovetail. The "Vixen-style" plate fits mounts made by Explore, Meade, Celestron, Vixen & others.

Now, perhaps the "grinch"  won't find a lump of black coal, in his Christmas stocking, or will he? 

Clear Skies,

Ray Khan
