Explore Scientific ED102-FCD100 Carbon Fiber Air-Spaced Triplet
The Explore Scientific ED102-FCD100 Series Air-Spaced Triplet Telescope in Carbon Fiber has the features for astrophotographers and visual astronomers found in our metal-tube ED102 models, but with the advantage of Carbon-fiber construction. This makes the Telescope much lighter, and a more lightweight Telescope can perform better on any mount that it is on.
This ED102-FCD100 Telescope includes genuine HOYA FCD100 ED glass, which is very similar in characteristics to OHARA's FPL-53. Using technological innovations, we have successfully launched high-performance optical glass production at the FCD optical family's apex. HOYA Optical's FCD100 is considered the premier ED glass available. Combining it with optical glass of a high refractive index allows the ED102-FCD100 to achieve unprecedented advanced chromatic aberration correction.
- the ED102-FCD100 in Carbon Fiber, with its wide imaging field at 714mm focal length, is perfect for full-frame cameras to capture large-scale nebulae, star clusters, comets, and deep-space galaxy clusters.
- The carbon fiber tube saves considerable weight compared to the metal tube version, and a lighter-weight Telescope can perform better on any mount that it is on.
