Used Explore Scientific Essential 102mm F/7 Triplet - Sold

The Explore Scientific 102mm APO refractor delivers exceptional image clarity and color making it a perfect choice for the observer and imager alike. Striking a perfect compromise between portability and aperture, this scope offers a healthy 4 inches of light gathering aperture and true diffraction-limited optics. At this objective, the 102mm performs well in lunar, planetary and deep sky viewing scenarios.

Offering an air-spaced triplet HOYA ED glass optical design which is virtually free of any chromatic aberrations, the image is bright and high in contrast. Proprietary EMD enhanced multi-layer coatings on all optical surfaces further enhance the optics' native performance. Striking a happy medium with an f/7 focal ratio, color and contrast are optimized without sacrificing exposure time.

 A push pull collimation cell ensures that your scope is always as sharp as possible, and a two speed precision focuser will help you bring those planets and star clusters into tack sharp focus.
