Explore Scientific ED102 Triplet Go-To Combo
ED102 Essential Series
The Explore Scientific ED102 Essential Series Air-Spaced Triplet APO Refractor Telescope is a true apochromat refractor that reveals our Moonâ€™s stark chiseled craters, Jupiterâ€™s orderly cloud belts and the blue-white stars of the Orion Nebula popping against the complex misty cloud they call home. The ED102 Essential Series Apochromatic Refractor will open up a treasure trove of night sky treats, and provide a solid optical platform to begin serious deep sky astrophotography.Â
A nice compromise between portability and aperture, this versatile high-end telescope offers true diffraction-limited optics and has an objective lens size that performs well in lunar, planetary and deep sky viewing situations.
Featuring an air-spaced triplet optical design that virtually eliminates chromatic aberrations, this telescope generates brilliant high-contrast images by combining genuine HOYA FCD1 extra-low dispersion (ED) glass and proprietary EMD enhanced multi-layer coatings.
EXOS2 with PMC-Eight
The award winning Explore Scientific EXOS2-GT PMC-Eight Equatorial Mount with its 28 lb instrument payload capacity for astrophotography is an excellent choice forÂ many of Explore Scientific's telescopesÂ as well for the visual astronomer where the instrument payload capacity can be pushed much more, providing a solid very portable solution for those who want to use a larger telescope that would normally require a much larger equatorial platform.
"This just makes me even happier with my purchase of a EXOS2-GT, I've come nowhere near capacity with mine. But this is just a very reassuring example of the quality of Explore Scientific products, and another reason why I will continue to be a customer!"
We often get calls about the â€œload capacityâ€
