Product description

Highly corrected 102mm triple apochromat with air spacing (with three lenses) and carbon fiber tube and a 2.5" high precision HEXAFOC focuser.

Apochromats are the ultimate choice for small to medium telescopes: the combination of compactness, portability, very high image contrast and sharpness together with the ability to create excellent astrophotos cannot be beat. Advances in glass manufacturing in recent years have made true apochromats available to more astronomy enthusiasts than ever before. The new Explore Scientific FCD-100 CF Hex represents another major improvement in this field - the overall correction (color and spherical) sets new standards in this price range. The optical design shows a polystrehl value of 0.97, indicating a correction level which is absolutely top notch.

This excellent apochromat is a very versatile telescope: the fast f-ratio makes short exposure times possible. The high contrast and sharpness of the image provide a fantastic view of large objects such as the North America Nebula or the Andromeda Galaxy, as well as sharp planetary images. The telescope is light and compact - the fog shield slides down the tube to minimize its size for transport. Revolutionary glass and precision manufacturing created a telescope that offers observational pleasure at the highest level. This not only qualifies this telescope as the ideal travel scope, it is also the perfect choice for quick observations and for astrophotography. The excellent 2.5" HEXAFOC focuser with 10:1 reduction is perfect for this - the large inner diameter of 65mm prevents vignetting from the focuser when the telescope is used for astrophotography with large sensors.
