Explore Scientific 102mm FCD100

This 102 mm f/7 apochromatic refractor features an air-spaced triplet optical design with premium Hoya FCD100 optics that virtually eliminates chromatic aberration.

Reveal celestial wonders like the desolate beauty of the lunar terrain, the serene structure of Saturn’s rings or the brightest deep sky treasures of the Messier catalog with Explore Scientific’s 102mm FCD100 Apochromatic Refractor.

This is essentially the same scope as the ES-ED10207-01 but offering greater quality optics. We use Hoya FCD100 optics which is very similar in characteristics as Ohara FPL-53. Having a true diffraction-limited optical design and sized to encourage spontaneous stargazing sessions, this high-quality telescope is a perfect grab-and-go instrument for exploring the skies.

Featuring an air-spaced triplet optical design that virtually eliminates chromatic aberrations, this telescope generates brilliant high-contrast images by combining genuine HOYA FCD100 extra-low dispersion (ED) glass and proprietary EMD enhanced multi-layer coatings on all optical surfaces.

In addition, this amazing little scope also includes a 2.5" Hexagonal focuser with very rigid design and strong support. Up to 10 lbs of gear can be loaded onto this focuser.

Although it is a standout telescope on its own, the 102mm also is compact enough to mount on a larger telescope, which can add versatility to your astrophotography experience by separating the guiding and imaging duties.

ED102 Classic White f/7 Air Spaced Triplet with Hoya FCD100 optics and Integrated Dew Shield; 714mm focal length; 2.5" HEX Focuser; Integrated Vixen-Style Dovetail, Explore Finder Scope Base installed on scope; 99% Reflective 2" Diagonal. Weighs 12lbs. (Case and Finder Scope NOT Included)
