Explore Scientific AR127 127 mm f/6.5 Air-Spaced Doublet

The Explore Scientific AR127 127 mm f/6.5 Air-Spaced Doublet is a classic air-spaced, crown-and-flint, doublet achromatic refractor - reborn with the aim to produce superior-class optical figure in a short (f/6.5) focal length design within Explore Scientific Air-Spaced Doublet AR Series. When you choose the AR127 model, you will be impressed by the stunning images revealed to you at the eyepiece, and all at a small fraction of the price you'd pay for a comparably sized apochromat refractor.

Designed to handle the rigors of public star parties and educational outreach, the Explore Scientific AR127 127 mm f/6.5 Series telescope comes with heavy-duty, high quality components, including a 2" dual-speed Crayford-style focuser, a one-piece 2" diagonal with 99% dielectric coatings, an 8x50mm non-illuminated straight-through finderscope and quick release bracket - and a cradle ring assembly with Vixen-style dovetail - compatible with many commercially available mounts. Just add a few eyepieces and the alt-azimuth or equatorial mount of your choice and you'll be ready to discover the Universe!
