Explore Scientific Carbon Fiber ED127 f/7.5 APO Triplet with Hoya FCD100 Optics

From the Moon’s chiseled craters to Jupiter’s orderly cloud belts to the blue-white stars of the Orion Nebula popping against the complex misty cloud they call home, Explore Scientific’s Carbon Fiber 127mm Apochromatic Refractor can open up a treasure trove of night sky treats.

A nice compromise between portability and aperture, this versatile high-end telescope offers true diffraction-limited APO optics and has an objective lens size of 127mm and a focal length of 952mm, so it performs well in lunar, planetary, or deep sky viewing.

What sets this scope apart are the optics and the tube construction. Featuring an air-spaced triplet optical design that virtually eliminates chromatic aberrations, this APO telescope generates brilliant high-contrast images by combining genuine HOYA extra-low dispersion (ED) glass and proprietary EMD enhanced multi-layer coatings on all optical surfaces.

Astronomers will love its carbon fiber optical tube assembly.  The carbon fiber construction reduces weight and eliminates focus changes caused by shrinking or expansion, resulting from temperature fluctuations.

Includes  a Hexagonal 2.5" Rack and Pinion Focuser, a 2" 99% reflective star diagonal, and the cradle rings.
