Explore Scientific 102 mm Carbon Fiber Triplet APO ED Refractor
This 102 mm Carbon Fiber APO ED Triplet Refractor by Explore Scientific nearly eliminates chromatic aberrations with its revolutionary air-spaced triplet optical design. By combining EMD enhanced multi-layer coatings with genuine HOYA extra-low dispersion glass on all optical surfaces, this refractor produces stunning, high-contrast images. The durable yet light carbon fiber OTA reduces focus changes due to shrinking or expanding that is common with other OTAs due to varying temperatures. Set up is quick and easy, leaving you with more time to spend behind the eyepiece.This package includes a 99% Reflective 2" Dielectric Diagonal, 1.25" compression ring adapter, cradle rings with a vixen dovetail plate, and finder scope base.
