Comments from a recent customer: "I was finally able to get the new Esprit 120 out for a test drive. WOW! It completely exceeded my expectations!   I really do think this scope is absolutely fabulous and am positive it would give a Takahashi a good run for the money."

Esprit 120ED and 150ED Super APO refractors have a doublet field flattener to get a flat field and minimize aberration and distortion. Their M48 adapter for cameras assures larger clear aperture than M42 adapter to reduce halation as much as possible. Connect the triplet and doublet field flattener with a high precision thin thread to keep the optical axis perpendicular to the image.

Main Features:
- Premium optical materials
- Short focal length and full frame corrected focal plane
- Excellent field flatness
- Precision linear power focuser is standard
- Metallic high-transmission lens coatings
- Light-baffled optical systems
- Telescope tube attachment hardware
