127MM APOCHROMATIC REFRACTOR

Great for astrophotography, Explore Scientific’s 127mm Apochromatic Refractor can capture in stunning detail many of the night sky’s most notable treasures.
With its true 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 HOYA extra-low dispersion (ED) glass and proprietary EMD enhanced multi-layer coatings on all optical surfaces. As an added bonus, its quick set-up allows you to spend more time at the eyepiece to make the most of your nights under the stars.
