A large, unobstructed aperture combined with an extremely low diffraction optical design makes this versatile refractor capable of bringing deep sky treasures into vivid relief.
The three lens optical design achieves vivid, high contrast images by incorporating genuine extra-low diffusion (ED) glass from Hoya Japan, which is treated with proprietary EMD multi-layer coating to eliminate light scatter and increase durability.
