This is an all new design from Explore Scientific and offers greater quality optics provided by Ohara. We use Ohara FPL-53 glass in these optics which is very similar in characteristics as Hoya FCD-100.

Featuring an air-spaced triplet optical design that virtually eliminates chromatic aberrations, this telescope generates brilliant high-contrast images by combining genuine Ohara FPL-53 extra-low dispersion (ED) glass and proprietary EMD enhanced multi-layer coatings on all optical surfaces.
