Explore Scientific AR102 Doublet Go-To Combo
The Explore Scientific AR Air-Spaced Doublet Series telescopes are classic air-spaced, crown-and-flint, doublet achromatic f/6.5 refractors with a superior-class optical figure. Whether you choose the AR102 (4"), AR127 (5") or AR152 (6") model, you will be impressed by the stunning images revealed to you at the eyepiece, and all at a small fraction of the price youâ€™d pay for a comparably sized apochromat refractor.
Designed to handle the rigors of public star parties and educational outreach, the Explore Scientific AR Series telescopes come with heavy-duty, high quality components, including a 2-inch Two-Speed Crayford Focuser with Compression , a 99% Reflective Dielectric-Coated 2-inch Diagonal Mirror with 1.25-inch Eyepiece Adapter, an 8X50 non-illuminated straight-thru finderscope and quick release bracket, and a cradle ring assembly with 45mm wide dovetail plate (Vixen style). Just add a few eyepieces and the alt-azimuth or equatorial mount of your choice and youâ€™ll be ready to discover the Universe!
Interferometic data on your newly purchased and registered Explore achromatic refractor is available upon request after 120 days of ownership. Please contact Customer Service for more information.
EXOS2 with PMC-Eight
The award winning Explore Scientific EXOS2-GT PMC-Eight Equatorial Mount with its 28 lb instrument payload capacity for astrophotography is an excellent choice forÂ many of Explore Scientific's telescopesÂ as well for the visual astronomer where the instrument payload capacity can be pushed much more, providing a solid very portable solution for those who want to use a larger telescope that would normally require a much larger equatorial platform.
"This just makes me even happier with my purchase of a EXOS2-GT, I've come nowhere near capacity with mine. But this is just a very reassuring example of the quality of Explore Scientific products, and another reason why I will continue to be a customer!"
We often get calls about the â€œload capacityâ€
