The Original Classic Explore Scientific ED127 Air-Spaced Triplet, Retooled for the Astrophotographer: 
  • New precision front cell with push-pull adjustments for tilt and centering adjustments to get the best collimation for the tightest stars.
  • New 2-inch two-speed rack and pinion focuser with heavy-duty locks and rotation adjustment, to position and hold your imaging system.
  • New retractable dew shield, for improved portability. 

A proven performer for astrophotographers and critical visual astronomers alike, the Explore Scientific ED127 Essential Series Air-Spaced Triplet Refractor utilizes genuine HOYA FCD1 ED glass to deliver stunning details of the night sky’s most notable treasures.

With its true apochromatic performance with diffraction-limited optics and ample aperture, this versatile model can showcase deep-sky delights like the edge-on Sombrero Galaxy with its distinct bulging center or the spiraling beauty of the face-on Pinwheel Galaxy as easily as it can reveal the intricacies of the Moon’s winding Hadley Rille.

Featuring an air-spaced triplet optical design that virtually eliminates chromatic aberrations, this telescope generates brilliant high-contrast images by combining genuine FCD1 HOYA extra-low dispersion (ED) glass and proprietary EMD enhanced multi-layer coatings on all optical surfaces.

The cradle rings feature a built-in handle, sculpted for secure handling. The top face of the handle is slotted to allow a 1/4x20 bolt for attaching a DSLR for "piggyback" imaging. The bottom of the cradle ring includes a V-block (Vixen-style) plate for attaching to your equatorial mount.
