Comments about Explore Scientific 127mm f/7.5 Air-Spaced Triplet ED Apochromatic Refractor Telescope:

The ES 127 triplet APO has provided very nice views of the Moon, Saturn and Jupiter this year, as well as crisp low-power views of the Pleiades, the Orion Nebula, and general deep-sky. Colors are excellent, with only slight green/purple fringing on the edge of the Moon.

The build quality is excellent. Nothing here feels cheap. The focuser is very good, and the illuminated finder is a nice touch. The shipping/storage case is sturdy, with foam cutouts for everything. BONUS: Like some others have reported, mine came with a free ES 70-degree 25mm 2" eyepiece.

Only a few annoyances: The lens covers for the finder scope tend to fall off. The main lens cover is a metal screw-on type that is a little difficult to put on, and is sometimes VERY hard to remove. The EP holder does not rotate, so sometimes I need to rotate the entire OTA inside the rings. The massive aluminum dew shield is appreciated, but it is a bit heavy.

Overall, this is a very nice package for the price.

  • Strong Construction

Cons

  • Heavy

Best Uses

  • Astronomy
  • Astrophotography

Comments about Explore Scientific 127mm f/7.5 Air-Spaced Triplet ED Apochromatic Refractor Telescope:

This is a true triplet APO refractor. There is virtually no false color on bright objects, and it has enough aperture to view deep sky objects. I use this primarily for astrophotography, but it is a fantastic planetary scope as well, I had the best views of Jupiter I have ever seen. The contrast and detail blow my 8" SCT out of the water. Couple this scope with a couple Explore Scientific eyepieces, and you have a winning combination.
