The Explore Scientific FCD100 - 127 mm Triplet ED APO Refractor features an air-spaced triplet optical design that virtually eliminates chromatic aberrations. This 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. In addition to enhancing portability by reducing weight, the use of carbon fiber for the OTA eliminates focus change attributed to shrinking or expansion caused by temperature fluctuations. It includes pair of clamshell type mounting rings with an attached carrying handle on one side and a Vixen dovetail mount on the other side.
In addition, this amazing scope also includes a 2.5" Hexagonal focuser with very rigid design and strong support. Up to 10 lb of gear can be loaded onto this focuser.
