Price: 2499.99 SKU: FCD100–10207-CF-01 BARCODE: 812257018420 Carbon Fiber Series Air-Spaced Triplet Telescope-FCD100–10207-CF-01
The Carbon Fiber Series Air-Spaced Triplet Telescope-FCD100–10207-CF-01, has the advantages for astrophotographer's and visual astronomers found in our metal-tube ED102 models, but with the advantage of making the instrument much lighter, and a lighter weight telescope performs better on any mount that it is used on.
This telescope includes genuine HOYA FCD100 ED glass which is very similar in characteristics as OHARA’s FPL-53. Relying on technological innovation, we have successfully launched the mass production of high-performance optical glass at the apex of the FCD family. Combining it with optical glass of high refractive index allows us to achieve unprecedented advanced chromatic aberration correction. HOYA FCD100 is considered one of the premier ED glass types available.
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.
This amazing scope 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.
ED102 Carbon Fiber f/7 Air Spaced Triplet with HOYA FCD100 optics and Integrated Dew Shield; 714mm focal length; 2.5" HEX Focuser with 2 extension tubes; Cradle Ring with Handle and Vixen-Style Dovetail Plate; Explore Scientific 2N1 Finder Scope Base installed on scope; 99% Reflective 2" Diagonal.
