Building on the success of the original Explore Scientific 127 Triplet Apo and the Carbon Fibre versions, Explore Scientific now release their best ever value 5-inch telescope: the Explore Scientific ED APO 127mm f/7.5 Essential. It is a fantastic optical and photographic telescope.

The Essential series are "bare bones" versions of the Explore Scientific Apos - they still have the exquisite optics of the original triplets, including Japanese Hoya FCD1 Dense Fluorcrown and Explore's Special EMD™ enhanced multi-layer coatings on every optical surface for the utmost in colour-free performance and still have the high strength aluminium tubes, internal baffling systems and hyper-blackened edges for the ultimate in contrast. However, the Essential Series Triplets leave it up to you to provide Finders, diagonals and other accessories - passing on the savings to you as a result. A standard ES 127 triplet costs in excess of £1600, whereas the Essential 127mm is just £1299.

The Explore Scientific ED APO 127mm f/7.5 Essential sports the new hybrid Rack and Pinion/Crayford Focusers from Explore featuring a dual focus locking system and a 10:1 dual speed focus control.
