The new sharp, high resolution SAXON ED refractors contain one element made from ED (Extra-low Dispersion) FPL-53 glass. This glass minimises chromatic aberration, provides higher resolution and superior contrast. Colour fringing around objects is completely eliminated with these optics. The SAXON ED refractors also feature a backlash-free 2" Crayford focuser with 1.25" adapter. The focuser wheels contain brushed-aluminium hubs with ridged rubber grip rings. These ED refractors are ideal for visual applications as well as astrophotography.
It comes with EQ5 German equatorial mount, 9x50 finderscope and 90 degree star diagonal.
