Explore Scientific AR102 102mm Achromatic Refractor Telescope
|The Explore Scientific AR102 offers advanced features such as a dual speed focuser and is a great value in a four-inch refractor. |
The Explore Scientific AR102 is a classic air-spaced, crown-and-flint, doublet achromatic f/6.5 refractor with a superior-class optical figure. 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 2" dual-speed Crayford-style focuser, a one-piece 2" diagonal with 99% dielectric coatings, an 8 X 50 finder scope 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!
