Explore Scientific ED152 6" (152mm) Carbon Fiber Edition f/8 1216mm Air Spaced Triplet Apochromatic Refractor -

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.

Lining and Layers:

  • Enhanced Multi-Layer Coatings (EMD) are deposited on optical elements to boost contrast and eliminate light scatter

Manufactured:

  • The ED152 comes with a special edition 3" rack & pinion dual-speed focuser, made for Explore Scientific by Starlight Instruments

Features:

  • The 2" diagonal has a precision-polished mirror with enhanced 99% dielectric coatings
  • The ED152 telescope is supplied with a Losmandy style dovetail for attachment to mounts from Celestron, Losmandy, Meade and more
  • Contrast is further enhanced with the installation of matte black knife-edge baffles in the optical tube assembly
  • The optics of the ED152 are diffraction limited at .25PV or better
  • The ED152 comes with an 8x50 right-angle finderscope with illuminated reticle eyepiece. It provides a wide 6deg. field of view that is right-side up and left-to-right correct. Great for daytime or nighttime
