ADVANCED LEVEL TELESCOPE – Quality telescope for Intermediate & Advanced users. Higher performance for those that wish to achieve much more. Increased performance on the moon, planets, stars, double stars, star clusters, globular star clusters, nebulae & galaxies.
Are you looking for an outstanding Advanced astronomy capability refractor telescope that’s equally at home with optical use as well as astrophotography and photography applications? Then check out the Saxon ED120 Refractor telescope!
The ED in Saxon ED120 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 ED120 and its fully multi-coated optics produce crisp, bright images with no colour fringing. No more annoying “purple haze” around your subject matter! This makes the Saxon ED120 an outstanding astrophotography tool and a high-performance visual instrument.
The Saxon ED120 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 aluminum 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 120ED 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, the “Great Red Spot” and the circling Galiean moons. Saturn will reveal its ring system and Titan. Mars will have dark surface features and polar caps 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 ED120 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 ED120 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 ED120 optical tube has a built-in 1/4″-20 plate for easy mounting, and includes tube rings.
