The Explore Scientific ED152 refractor telescope is a perfect instrument for exploring the skies. It features an 152mm air-spaced, triplet objective lens with genuine HOYA ED glass that is truly apochromatic with the proprietary EMD coatings to produce images of such high contrast and sharpness. With this you will witness the magnificent desolation of the endless variations of the lunar terrain, the subtle olivine modulations and storms of Saturn and the serene structure of its ring system.
Explore the broad range of celestial objects, including the deep sky treasures of the entire Messier and Herschel catalogues. A lightweight carbon fiber tube eliminates focus change due to shrinking or expansion due to temperature changes and a retractable dew shield protects against moisture and stray light. The telescope also has a three-point push/pull collimation cell, a two-speed two-inch focuser and a precision-polished two-inch mirror diagonal that is 99% reflective.
