For sale is my beautiful Explorer Scientific 127mm carbon fiber APO triplet F7.5. This is the second generation 127CF. It has sliding CF dew shield and better quality 2" dual speed helical RP focuser.

The OTA weights only 14lb (aluminum version of the same scope is 22lb).

I am the first owner, have purchased it form ES at the end of 2016. Optics is prestine, collimation is spot-on. Mechanically, it is also in the top shape. I have relubricated and adjusted the focuser. It is smooth and precise. Body has a few light marks but looks fresh. I am always getting compliments on how good it looks. The spots on the body in photos which look like scuffs are actually reflections. It is hard to take a photo, it is black and glossy. Posted Image

It provides razor sharp CA-free views. The star colors are rich and you would not believe the Moon and planet views it delivers with good quality EPs.

The package includes 127CF OTA, spring lock rings with handle and vixen dovetail bar, metal objective cap, two focuser extension tubes, two finder shoes (Vixen/Synta style installed, and original ES/Meade style if you want to put it back on), and heavy duty hard case with foam.

Reason for sale - the funds go into a larger scope. Posted Image

$1,300 covers PayPal fees and ConUS shipping.
