From our 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 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 optics and has an objective lens size that performs well in lunar, planetary and deep sky viewing situations.
Featuring 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.
Its carbon fiber optical tube assembly encourages use by reducing weight and eliminates focus change attributed to shrinking or expansion caused by temperature fluctuations.
Includes the 2" 99% reflective diagonal and the cradle rings.
Available with a white aluminum tube, or black carbon fiber tube.
