Great for astrophotography, Explore Scientific’s Carbon Fiber 127mm Apochromatic Refractor can capture in stunning detail many of the night sky’s most notable treasures.
With its true diffraction-limited optics and ample aperture, this versatile model can showcase deep sky delights like the edge-on Sombrero Galaxy with its distinct bulging center or the spiraling beauty of the face-on Pinwheel Galaxy as easily as it can reveal the intricacies of the Moon’s winding Hadley Rille.
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 reduces weight and eliminates focus change attributed to shrinking or expansion caused by temperature fluctuations. As an added bonus, its quick set-up allows you to spend more time at the eyepiece to make the most of your nights under the stars.
