NEW 'FCD-100' version of Explore Scientific’s highly regarded 127mm f/7.5 air-spaced triplet refractor with an ED lens element made from premium Hoya FCD-100 glass.
Fully multicoated optics and blackened knife-edge baffles provide razor-sharp, high contrast views with minimal chromatic aberration. The overall correction of aberrations (colour and spherical) is remarkable and the telescope achieves a polystrehl value of 0,97 which indicates a very high level of correction.
The lens cell is also fully collimateable, should the need arise (please don’t attempt to collimate the optics yourself, it requires experience and an optical bench).
The modern carbon-fibre tube is warm to the touch and an impressive 3kg lighter than the conventional aluminium-tubed ES 127 triplet.
Sturdy 2.5” Hex focuser with large 65mm inner diameter prevents vignetting when used for astrophotography with large sensors.
Newly-designed latched tube-rings provide easy balance adjustment.
Optional accessories include a Standard field flattener and the new 3" Explore Scientific Field Flattener and Focal Reducer.
The practical nature of this telescope's construction means it can be fitted to mounts similar to the Skywatcher HEQ5 Pro for astrophotography (we would recommend the NEQ6 Pro for the heavier aluminium-tubed version).
