Explore Scientific Essential ED127 APO Triplet Refractor




Excellent for astro-imaging applications, the Explore Scientific Essential Series 127 mm Apochromatic Refractor can capture many of the most prominent treasures of the cosmos with astonishing detail.



This versatile refractor model, with its extensive aperture and true diffraction-limited optics, can display deep sky wonders such as the edge-on Sombrero Galaxy with its unmistakable bulging center, or the spiraling elegance of the face-on Pinwheel Galaxy just as readily as it can display the elaborate complexity of the Moon's winding Hadley Rille.



For brilliant high contrast images, this telescope couples genuine HOYA extra-low dispersion (ED) glass with Explore Scientific's proprietary EMD enhanced multi-layer coatings on all optical surfaces. The Essential ED127 also uses an air-spaced triplet optical design to virtually eliminate chromatic aberrations. In addition, set-up is quick and easy, allowing observers to take advantage of their time under the stars by letting them spend more time at the eyepiece.
