This is truly a premium quality refractor telescope; it has all the great features of the EDT-127075-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.
With a full 5 inches of aperture unobstructed in this refractor design, the images are stunning, and with a mid range focal ratio, this is a very versatile instrument.
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.
