Telescope House brings you the Explore Scientific ED APO 80mm f/6 Essential - part of the Explore Scientific Essential series. These are "bare bones" versions of the Explore Scientific Apos - they still have the exquisite optics of the original triplets, including Japanese Hoya FCD1 Dense Fluorcrown and Explore's Special EMD™ enhanced multi-layer coatings on every optical surface for the utmost in colour-free performance and still have the high strength aluminium tubes, internal baffling systems and hyper-blackened edges for the ultimate in contrast.

The Explore Scientific ED APO 80mm f/6 Essential comes with a Vixen/Synta style Dovetail mount with 360-degree rotational ring (for perfect framing of images), Explore Scientific finder shoe (please note no finder or finder cradle is included, but are available to buy separately on this website) and importantly for Astrophotography and Visual use, two extension tubes (pictured left) which deliver the perfect focus spacings for all manner of cameras, eyepieces and diagonals. Most importantly, the Explore Scientific ED APO 80mm f/6 Essential features the new Explore hybrid Crayford/low-profile rack and pinion focuser with 10:1 reduction dual speed controls and heavy duty dual locking bolts.


For those with larger format imagers, we recommend the dedicated Explore Scientific Field Flattener - please note the Epxlore Scientific 0.7x Focal reducer corrector will not work with the f/6 80mm Explore Apo range. In order to focally reduce this telescope, we recommend the TeleVue TRF2008 Field Flattener and Focal Reducer.


Specifications:


Aperture - 80mm
