    Great for astrophotography and critical visual observations, the Explore Scientific ED127 Essential Series Air-Spaced Triplet Refractor utilizes genuine HOYA FCD1 ED to deliver stunning details of the night sky’s most notable treasures.

    The Explore Scientific 127mm f/7.5 ED APO Refractor Telescope offers superior sharpness and color correction by minimizing the color dispersion through the use of specialized Hoya ED glass. True air-spaced triplet apochromatic optic design with f/7.5 focal ratio for portability and superior low magnification. Universal mounting plate with rotating release knob fits Explore, Vixen, Meade, photo tripods, European thread and more. The Explore Scientific 127mm ED APO Refractor Telescope includes 2" diagonal, 1.25" eyepiece holder with compression ring fittings and built-in dew shield.


    With its true apochromatic performance with 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.

    • The Explore ED APO telescope comes with a white aluminum tube with black accents
    • Explore Scientific Air-Spaced Apochromatic Triplets have true APO optic and are diffraction limited at .25PV or better.
    • Genuine ED glass from Hoya Japan is used on all ED APO Triplets at Explore, for superb quality and light throughput.
    • Enhanced Multi-Layer Coatings (EMD) are deposited on optical elements to boost contrast and eliminate light scatter; and contrast is further enhanced with the installation of matte black knife-edge baffles in the optical tube assembly.
    • Heavy-duty 2" dual-speed focuser
    • The included 2" diagonal has a precision-polished mirror with enhanced 99% dielectric coatings. A 1.25" compression ring adapter is part of this package.
    • To attach your Explore Scientific Air-Spaced Triplet telescope to a variety of mounts, the "Vixen-style" dovetail is included. The "Vixen-style" plate fits mounts made by Explore, Meade, Celestron, Vixen & others.

    Superior refractor - bargain price

    Purchased two of these units for my Astronomy for Educators program at my University. Quality is excellent, both fit and finish as well as optically. The scope and Bressler mount are rugged, easy to set up and transport to the observing site. The soft case holds the scope, finder, diagonal, eyepiece set, camera adapter, GoTo handset and battery. The mount could be a bit beefier, but this is very transportable as it is.
    Optically, the scope is a joy; rotating focuser makes it easy to use without adjusting the saddle clamps. Clusters in Hercules, Sagittarius, Cassiopeia resolve down into the interiors - even dense globulars are well defined. With the 30mm 100-deg eyepiece, the double cluster and Andromeda galaxy fill the field; double cluster shows nebulosity and star colors throughout - no discernible false color at the eyepiece. Double-double is easily resolved. At 225x, Saturn was exceptional, showing banding and surface features, Cassini division easily visible, ring structure was excellent, tracking is accurate and the hand control works very well. Airy disks of stars are well formed & balanced across the range of focus.
    Photographically, the scope is really amazing. Photo of the gibbous Moon with Canon 5D at prime focus gives detail down into crater interiors, lava flows of different colors, amazing detail. I can't wait to try this scope on the Orion nebula this winter.
    Highly recommended.
