Explore Scientific's 127mm carbon-fiber apochromoatic refractor (EDT-127075-CF) can be hard to find right now — but you can get this one right away. It's a new-in-box OTA with an air-spaced triplet objective that incorporates Hoya extra-low dispersion (ED) glass and proprietary multi-layer coatings on all optical surfaces. The lightweight carbon-fiber tube eliminates focus problems caused by shrinking/expansion during temperature fluctuations.

This OTA was donated to the International Dark-Sky Association in 2015 by Scott Roberts, ES's founder/president and a former IDA Director. All sale proceeds will be given to the IDA to support its efforts to control and reduce light pollution worldwide. (FYI, I am currently on the IDA Board, hence my role in selling this.)

Standard retail for this tube assembly is $1,848.99. The scope will be covered by ES's original warranty. IDA will pay the shipping.
• Aperture: 127 mm
