PRODUCT INFORMATION

Description

The Explore Scientific AR 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 (4in), AR127 (5") or AR152 (6in) model, you will be impressed by the stunning images revealed to you at the eyepiece, and all at a small fraction of the price you?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 2in dual-speed Crayford-style focuser, a one-piece 2in diagonal with 99% dielectric coatings, an 8 X 50 non-illuminated straight -thru finderscope and quick release bracket, and a cradle ring assembly with Vixen-style dovetail mount. Just add a few eyepieces and the alt-azimuth or equatorial mount of your choice and you?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.

Twilight 1 Mount is included. See Twilight I details for more info.

Prism software

I'm new to Astrophotography and was looking for someway of controlling telescope and Observatory and found Prism . I found it easy to setup easy to use I can recommend this .

Great Telescope

Easy to put together and easy to use for a beginner. I had to use the included spacer to get my 1.25" eyepieces to focus properly in case you're having that issue.

powerful device

very reliable, strong, and dependable

PRISM software - the benefit of the full integration

I'm commission a site for serius observations and there are a lot of requirements and technologies to be harmonized and so many areas of post-processing that require dedicated software that you can really get lost. PRISM is open and allows full integration of any equipment in few mouse clicks with an impressive set of analysis and post-processing and automation tools that can drive efficiently you into a professional experience of the sky wonders.

Best Choice Around

Software is very well thought of and is packed with anything you would ever need.
The interface is gorgeous, it integrates well all the features.
Price is very convinient; I am very glad that Hyperion does not require a subscription fee, like others unfortunately do.
I don't give a 5 star because the pointing model for Alt/Az mounts is unavailble.
