    The Explore Scientific 80mm f/6 Air Spaced Triplet ED APO made Wired Magazine's Wish List for cool gifts and is a perfect instrument for demanding wide field observing and astrophotography.     Rugged and portable unlike other grab and go small doublet ED refractors this a true three element apochromatic telescope capable of producing research level image quality. Dr. Mike Reynolds used this telescope to make the first ever images of shadow bands on clouds during the total eclipse of the sun over Easter Island on July 11 2010.     In addition to fine optical quality the deluxe focuser diagonal finder scope and case make this telescope an extreme value!  Hoya ED Glass a Critical Element of Explore Scientific ED Apochromatic Refracting Telescopes     Explore Scientific uses ED (Extra low Dispersion) FCD1 (Dense Fluor Crown) glass developed by Hoya Optical of Japan to enable the production of lenses that offer superior sharpness and color correction by minimizing the color dispersion (chromatic aberration or the false color fringing seen around bright objects that happens when light rays pass through standard crown and flint doublet objectives). This glass type offers a more durable and long lasting solution to produce an optic to minimize chromatic aberration over delicate fluorite crystal objectives that are prone to fracturing and absorbing moisture.     High Performance Optics Demand a High Precision Focuser      Exploring the fine features around the Moon's Hadley Rille will put to test observing skills of any astronomer as well as precision of telescope optics. Better optical quality dictates more precise focusing.  This is especially true when observing at high magnification or when making CCD images. With a standard focuser you will find that a tiny nudge will throw out focus and turn your night into one of frustration.  So we included as standard equipment on all Explore Scientific ED Apos a ten to one two speed Crayford style precision focuser with tension ad Here's looking at you!Every amateur astronomer needs telescope eyepieces lenses and filters. And the Celestron 2 inch eyepiece and filter kit is one of the most versatile accessories you can own. Contains:Three E Lux 2 inch eyepieces Three element fully multi coated optical design with a 56 degree apparent field of view (40mm has 50 degree). Supplied in 26mm 32mm and 40mm focal lengths.A 2X Barlow lens   A 2X Barlow doubles the magnifying power of your eyepiece by doubling its effective focal length. The E Lux Barlow is fully multi coated and with three eyepieces gives a total of six power combinations. It includes an adapter ring that will let you use 1.25 inch eyepieces with it.Five 2 inch colored lunar and planetary eyepiece filters   Included are Kodak Wratten #12 (deep yellow) #21 (orange) #25 (red) #58 (green) and #80A (blue). These filters will greatly enhance your enjoyment of our solar system.2 inch mirror diagonal   A high quality 90 degree multi coated mirror diagonal allows you to take advantage of the wider field of view provided by 2 inch eyepieces. This diagonal fits rear cells of all Schmidt Cassegrain telescopes and includes an adapter to use with refractor telescopes.Aluminum carrying case   This sturdy case accommodates all of the other items in its die cut foam interior and even offers room for additional accessories. The most widely used research telescope on earth now comes with the most advanced optical system. Meades LX200 ACF brings Advanced Coma Free (ACF) optics within reach of aspiring astronomers everywhere. Nearly every observatory reflector in the world uses an aplanatic (coma free) optical system like the Ritchey Chrtien (RC) including NASAs Hubble Space Telescope. Now you can own similar optics to what the professionals use. The LX200 ACF includes all the field proven features of the LX200 including GPS Primary Mirror Lock Zero Image Shift Microfocuser Oversized Primary Mirror SmartDrive Smart Mount AutoStar II and more. Plus the LX200 ACF comes with observatory class optics and a Series 5000 26mm 5 Element Plssl eyepiece. The new LX200 ACF. Its the biggest news in astronomy since well the LX200.     The advanced in Advanced Coma Free.A traditional Ritchey Chrtien (RC) is a type of reflector that delivers a coma free flat field of view via hyperbolic primary and secondary mirrors. RC telescopes (from a variety of manufacturers) are found in most of the worlds top observatories and NASAs Hubble Space Telescope. Because the mirrors in these telescopes have always been very expensive to make few amateur astronomers could enjoy them. Fortunately Meade engineers developed a radical new Advanced Coma Free design by combining a hyperbolic secondary mirror with a corrector lens and spherical primary mirror combination that performs as one hyperbolic element. This ACF design produces a coma free flat field of view that rivals traditional RC telescopes at a fraction of the cost. The design even eliminates diffraction spikes and improves astigmatism both of which are inherent in the traditional ACF design. When reviewing Meades LX400 ACF Advanced Coma Free Sky and Telescope magazine said  [It] does indeed perform like a [Ritchey Chrtien]. The difference between the off axi The smc Zoom eyepiece features a magnification range of 20 60X, an apparent field of view of 38 to 60 degrees, and an eye relief of 20mm. Like all PENTAX eyepieces, it is renowned for its outstanding image reproduction. With its JIS Class 6 rated waterproof and fog proof construction, this Zoom eyepiece is ideal for use with astronomical telescopes with its 8mm 24mm focal length.Compatible with the following: PF 65 and PF 65 ED II series spotting scopes, PF 80 series spotting scopes, PF 100 series spotting scopes See more of the universe in less time with the Zhumell SCT Dual Speed Focuser.

Vixen Giant ARK 80mm Astronomical Binoculars      This series of large nitrogen purged waterproof binoculars stand alone in the field of combined performance and image quality. The same care that goes into making our high end telescopes is evident in our large aperture binoculars.     The Vixen ARK Series binoculars are used for viewing the starry sky or long distance terrestrial viewing.     The 12x80 model (Item #1455) with a near 7mm exit pupil and 4.5 degree field of view is best suited for astronomical use. The 16x80 model (Item #1456) allows the observer to get closer to the action without any increase in unit weight and the 20x80 (Item #1457) wide angle model represents the best of high magnification wide angle viewing.     The 80mm diameter lenses of these units allow the observer to take in such celestial sights as the Orion or Lagoon Nebula and other celestial wonders. The Milky Way the Moon and bright comets will jump out at you with this combined aperture and power.     The optics on the Vixen ARK series binoculars are multicoated and the prisms are made from BaK4 glass. This combination allows for the greatest transfer of light through the optics. Other benefits include rugged optical housings fine focusing and a right eye diopter to allow for left/right eyesight differences. Farpoint Dovetail Plate System for Celestron SCT Telescopes, Curved Blocks and hardware for the Celestron SCT telescopes. Mounts to existing holes on the telescope tube. Our dovetail plates are compatible with Losmandy style dovetail accessories! Farpoint dovetail plates have machined fillets, chamfered corners and edges for a finished look.

    Freedom from Ghost images even when stacked.  Striae free substrates are polished parallel to 30 seconds of to avoid wedge errors.  Finest 7 layer  hard multicoatings on both faces feature 0.25% residual reflections (Baader filters are unique no other colored filter incorporates anti reflection multicoatings).  The coatings are also different for each of the filters in order to match the coating performance to the filter curve of each color.  This maximizes the transmission and minimizes reflections.     Extremely High Transmissions result in maximum contrast and isolation of planetary details even with smaller telescopes.  Efficiencies of the three longpass filters (Red Orange and Yellow) peaks at 98% and efficiencies of the three bandpass filters (Green Blue Dark Blue) achieve 70%.      Carefully designed spectral characteristics.  Filters may be stacked without image degradation or ghosting in order to provide even narrower passbands.  Or combine with any of the other Baader filters for interesting possibilities.     No reduction in sharpness even at high magnifications or when using the filter far ahead of the focal plane (ie digital imaging or in front of a diagonal or binoviewer).
