Are you looking for an outstanding Advanced Astronomy premium refractor telescope that’s equally at home with optical use as well as astrophotography and photography applications?
Then check out the Saxon ED100 Refractor telescope!
The ED in Saxon ED100 stands for extra-low dispersion glass. This Saxon refractor telescope is crafted with one element made from ED FPL-53 glass – which means minimized chromatic aberrations and higher resolution with superior contrast.
The ED100 and its fully multi-coated optics produce crisp, bright images with no color fringing. No more annoying “purple haze” around your subject matter! This makes the Saxon ED100 an outstanding astrophotography tool and a high-performance visual instrument. The Saxon ED100 refractor telescope doesn’t stop at optical quality, though. It also features a backlash-free 2″ Crayford focuser.
This professional quality focuser is a smooth operator and comes standard with a 1.25″ adapter to allow for a wide variety of optional accessories. The focuser adjustment wheels come equipped with brushed aluminium hubs topped with ridged rubber grips for a positive handling experience. Set the focuser tension or lock it for imaging with the focus lock knob.

What can you expect to see with a Saxon 100ED refractor telescope?
You’ll be delighted with sharp, high contrast views of the Moon – from its deepest craters to its tallest mountains. Jupiter will show its many surface bands and the circling Galiean moons. Saturn will reveal its ring system and Mars will have dark surface features when it’s close. Add an appropriate solar filter and you can explore ever-changing sunspots – or just be whisked away to the stars when you aim the Saxon ED100 towards bright star clusters. You’ll never forget your heavenly views of nebula, or your discovery of distant galaxies!
Don’t forget a refractor telescope works equally well on terrestrial subjects, too. Study a distant ship on the horizon, capture an elusive wild bird, or just study wildlife at a distance. The Saxon ED100 refracting telescope can also be used as a tele-photo lens or applied as an astrophotographer’s tool. It gives excellent performance for prime-focus astrophotography and charge coupled device or, “CCD” imaging.
The ED100 optical tube has a built-in 1/4″-20 plate for easy mounting, and includes tube rings. Additional accessories include a high-quality, image erect star diagonal, two eyepieces, finderscope and bracket.
