Explore Scientific ED APO 80mm f/6 Carbon Fibre v2.0 Triplet Refractor OTA
Zoom  Zoom

The Explore Scientific ED APO 80mm f/6 Carbon Fibre follows on from the original ES 80mm Triplet - but this iteration is lighter at 2.4kg (1.5kg lighter than the conventionally-tubed aluminium version). The triplet true-apochromat design utilises Japanese Hoya FDC001 glass and is optically superior to conventional mass-produced ED doublet designs.

The optical tube is completely rotatable within its mounting ring, which comes attached to a conventional Vixen-profile mounting foot. The heavy-duty 10:1 reduction Crayford focuser is smooth and responsive - reaching a delightful snap-to-focus that refractors of this quality are famed for. The supplied rugged foam-lined flightcase has room for the also-included Explore Scientific 99% reflectivity star diagonal. Two extension tubes are included for precise spacing for all manner of imagers. This is a suberb system, equally at home as a "grab-and-go" visual instrument, or at the heart of an advanced widefield imaging rig.

Also available for this system is the Explore Scientific field flattener, for large format imager sensors.

Please note, no finder is included in this package, though the finder footer will take both the Explore Scientific 8x50 finders and the Meade 50mm finderscopes.

Weight: 2.4kg
Aperture: 80mm
Focal length: 480mm
Focal Ratio: f/6

Standard accessories:

optical tube assembly with rotateble universal 44mm dovetail
