Discover the Universe with Enhanced Precision: Explore Scientific ED127 Triplet Refractor Telescope

Embark on an unparalleled celestial journey with the Explore Scientific ED127, a masterpiece of engineering designed for astrophotographers and serious astronomers. This air-spaced triplet apochromat refractor telescope boasts cutting-edge improvements and genuine HOYA FCD1 ED glass for breathtaking views of the cosmos.

Key Features for Unmatched Celestial Viewing:

  • Precision Engineered for Stellar Clarity: The newly retooled front cell with push-pull adjustments ensures optimal collimation, capturing the cosmos with unparalleled sharpness and detail.
  • Advanced Focusing System: A 2-inch two-speed rack and pinion focuser with robust locks and rotation adjustment secures and aligns your imaging system for perfect shots every time.
  • Enhanced Portability with Retractable Dew Shield: Ease of transport and setup is ensured with a new, sleek retractable dew shield.

Astrophotography and Visual Astronomy Excellence:

The Explore Scientific ED127 is not just a telescope; it's your gateway to the wonders of the night sky. From the distinct features of the Moon’s surface to the captivating spirals of distant galaxies, this telescope reveals the universe in stunning detail. Its air-spaced triplet optical design virtually eliminates chromatic aberrations, producing brilliant, high-contrast images.

Optimized Optics for Every Observer:

  • True Apochromatic Performance: Experience the cosmos with crystal-clear views, thanks to the diffraction-limited optics and genuine HOYA extra-low dispersion (ED) glass. 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.
  • Proprietary EMD Coatings: Every optical surface features enhanced multi-layer coatings for improved light transmission and image brightness.

Designed for the Enthusiast:

The ED127 is built with the user in mind. The cradle rings feature a built-in handle, sculpted for secure handling. The top face of the handle is slotted to allow a 1/4x20 bolt for attaching a DSLR for "piggyback" imaging. The bottom of the cradle ring includes a V-block (Vixen-style) plate for attaching to your equatorial mount. With the Explore Scientific 2N1 Finder Scope Base, navigating the night sky has never been easier. (Finder scope sold separately. Add the Explore Scientific 8x50 Straight Through Illuminated Viewfinder or the Explore Scientific 8x50 Illuminated Right Angle Polar Finder Scope)


Enhance Your Viewing Experience with Essential Accessories:

  • Stable Support for Stellar Observations: Elevate your celestial journey with the Explore Scientific EXOS2-GT Equatorial Mount. Engineered for precision and stability, this mount is the perfect companion for your telescope, ensuring smooth tracking of celestial bodies across the night sky.
  • Safeguard Your Telescope in Style: Protect and transport your telescope with ease using the Explore Scientific Soft-Sided Telescope Case. Custom-designed for a snug fit, this case offers robust protection against the elements, making it an indispensable accessory for any astronomer on the move.
  • Astrophotography Perfected: Transform your astrophotography with the Explore Scientific 3" Field Flattener .7x Focal Reducer. This essential tool corrects edge-of-field aberrations and reduces the f-ratio, expanding your field of view. Capture brighter images with reduced exposure time and bring the universe closer than ever.
