This is truly a premium quality refractor telescope; it has all the great features of the EDT-10207-CF but incorporates HOYA's premium FCD100 ED glass, which is the finest of the FCD line. The technicians at Explore Scientific have used innovative technology and air-spaced triplet optics to deliver unprecedented chromatic aberration correction in this telescope.
Considering the vivid images yielded by this telescope and it's lightweight, mid-sized carbon fiber body, this will be a favorite grab and go companion for the true enthusiast.
All optical surfaces are treated with proprietary EMD enhanced multi-layer coatings to protect the optics and greatly reduce light scatter and ensure the most possible light reaches the eyepiece.
In addition, this amazing scope also includes a new 2.5" hexagonal rack and pinion focuser with very rigid design and strong support. Also included are a cradle ring with handle and a Vixen style dovetail plate, which is compatible with many mounts on the market. There is a 99% reflective 2" diagonal for ease of viewing and a base installed for an Explore Finder Scope, which is sold separately.
