    Explore Scientific ED102 Essential Series Air-Spaced Triplet APO Refractor Telescope ES-ED10207-01

    The Explore Scientific ED102 Essential Series Air-Spaced Triplet APO Refractor Telescope is an Apochromat refractor that reveals the Moon's stark chiseled craters, Jupiter's orderly cloud belts, and the blue-white stars of the Orion Nebula. The ED102 Essential Series Apochromatic Refractor opens a treasure trove of the night sky and provides a reliable optical platform to begin serious deep-sky astrophotography. 

    An excellent compromise between portability and aperture, this versatile high-end telescope offers accurate diffraction-limited optics. It has an objective lens size that performs well in lunar, planetary, and deep-sky viewing situations. Featuring an air-spaced triplet optical design virtually eliminates chromatic aberrations, this telescope generates brilliant high-contrast images by combining genuine HOYA FCD1 extra-low dispersion (ED) glass and proprietary EMD enhanced multi-layer coatings.
