127mm FCD100 Carbon Fiber Apochromatic Refractor - Coming Soon

  • Reveal celestial wonders like the desolate beauty of the lunar terrain, the serene structure of Saturn’s rings or the brightest deep sky treasures of the Messier catalog with Explore Scientific’s 127mm FCD100 Apochromatic Refractor. This is essentially the same scope as the EDT-127075-CF but offering greater quality optics. We use Hoya FCD100 optics which is very similar in characteristics as Ohara FPL-53. Having a true diffraction-limited optical design and sized to encourage spontaneous stargazing sessions, this high-quality telescope is a perfect grab-and-go instrument for exploring the skies. Featuring an air-spaced triplet optical design that virtually eliminates chromatic aberrations, this telescope generates brilliant high-contrast images by combining genuine HOYA FCD100 extra-low dispersion (ED) glass and proprietary EMD enhanced multi-layer coatings on all optical surfaces. In addition, this amazing scope also includes a 2.5" Hexagonal focuser with very rigid design and strong support. Up to 10 lbs of gear can be loaded onto this focuser. ED127 Carbon Fiber f/7.5 Air Spaced Triplet with Hoya FCD100 optics and Integrated Dew Shield; 952mm focal length; 2.5" HEX Focuser; Cradle Ring with Handle and Losmandy Style Dovetail Plate; Explore Finder Scope Base installed on scope; 99% Reflective 2" Diagonal. Weighs 14lbs. (Case and Finder Scope NOT Included)
