Explore Scientific ED102 102mm f/7 (714mm) Classic White Essential Series Air Spaced Triplet Apochromatic Refractor Telescope 1.14 arcsec Resolution -
The Explore Scientific ED102 102mm f/7 (714mm) Classic White Essential Series Air Spaced Triplet Apochromatic Refractor Telescope comes with a white aluminum tube with black accents. It has true APO optic and are diffraction limited at .25PV or better. Genuine ED glass from Hoya Japan is used on all ED APO Triplets at Explore, for superb quality and light throughput. The Enhanced Multi-Layer Coatings (EMD) are deposited on optical elements to boost contrast and eliminate light scatter; and contrast is further enhanced with the installation of matte black knife-edge baffles in the optical tube assembly. While refractors seldom require additional collimation after initial factory adjustment, the lens cell design allows for consumer collimation. Sending your ED102 Triplet off to the factory is always an option, but is not required.
It comes with a heavy-duty 2" dual-speed rotatable focuser. To attach your Explore Scientific Air-Spaced Triplet telescope to a variety of mounts, a "Vixen-style" L-bracket is included. The "Vixen-style" plate fits mounts made by Explore, Meade, Celestron, Vixen & others.
