Explore Scientific 127 mm FCD100 Triplet CF Refractor w/3" FT Focuser
This Explore Scientific Carbon Fiber 127mm FCD100 Air-Spaced Triplet Refractor will capture the many wonders of the night sky, such as the desolate beauty of the Moon's surface features. Included is Starlight Instrument's 3" Feather Touch Focuser to deliver optimal focusing capabilities.
Retains all of the celebrated features of the original carbon fiber EDT127, but now includes genuine premium HOYA FCD100 ED glass, which has characteristics similar to OHARA's FPL-53 glass. By committing to technological innovation, Explore Scientific has launched the fruitful mass production of high-performance optical glass at the FCD family's apex. Combining this with high refractive index optical glass allows Explore Scientific to achieve exceptional advanced chromatic aberration correction. HOYA FCD100 is widely recognized as one of the premier obtainable ED glass types.
This high-quality refractor features a genuine diffraction-limited optical design in a compact size supporting unplanned viewing sessions. It is the ideal instrument for spontaneous night sky exploration. The 127 mm FCD100 has an air-spaced triplet design that practically eradicates chromatic aberrations, enabling radiant high contrast images by coupling true HOYA FCD100 extra-low dispersion (ED) glass with Explore Scientific's own EMD enhanced multi-layer coatings on every optical surface.
