This excellent Explore Scientific ED APO 165mm Carbon fibre telescope is the currently largest representative of the exceptional line of apochromatic refractors by Explore Scientific. The completely new designed optics contains the exceptionally high quality FPL-53 glass which delivers stunning sharpness and contrast without any trace of color abberation. For a apochromatic refractor of this size the focal ratio is relatively fast - the f/7 optics is thus also very suitable for astrophotography. For this reason Explore Scientific added one of the world’s top focusers - the high precision and the famed rigidity of the 3" Feathertouch focuser make focusing an easy task - and unwanted focus shift of an attached camera during exposure simply does not happen. The result of this combination of outstanding optics, top level mechanics and low weight for its aperture makes the Explore Scientific ED APO 165mm Carbon fibre telescope an extremely versatile telescope, that wil not only give images of the moon and planets that are perfect. It will also exceed the expectations of even the most demanding amateur astrophotographers.
