Explore Scientific AR152 152mm Achromatic Refractor Telescope
|The Explore Scientific AR152 is a large refractor that is sure to delight by providing bright images of deep space objects. |
The Explore Scientific AR152 is a classic air-spaced, crown-and-flint, doublet achromatic f/6.5 refractor with a superior-class optical figure. Large aperture refractors reveal deep space objects in ways that other telescopes simply cannot. The relatively short 988mm focal length of this instrument allows for amazing wide field views in excess of two degrees, all with pinpoint stars across the entire field. You will be impressed by the stunning images revealed to you at the eyepiece; most people don't event want to think about what you would 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!
