The Explore Scientific FirstLight™ telescope series offers versatile instruments for those interested in both exploring the details of our celestial neighborhood as well as investigating the wonders of the deep sky. This particular package contains a MAK152 f/12.5 optical tube and EXOS2GT GoTo equatorial mount, along with an assortment of necessary accessories like a 25 mm Plossl eyepiece, 2" diagonal, 2.5" Hexagonal focuser, and red dot finder. The FirstLight 152 mm Maksutov-Cassegrain also comes with a smartphone camera adapter. This allows you to easily capture and share the fascinating beauty developing in your eyepiece with others. With Firstlight™, the only requirement is a curiosity about the night sky.

EXOS2GT GoTo Mount

The EXOS2GT mount is a German equatorial mount equipped with GoTo technology. Motors are equipped on both axes which allow the mount to move smoothly and accurately as it tracks astronomical objects. The precision gears allow for minimum backlash on all nine of the mount's slew speeds.

This mount only needs a simple 1, 2, or 3 star alignment to orient the scope.


The included tripod is a 1" stainless steel tube tripod and has an accessory tray that can be used to hold eyepieces and other accessories while observing. The accessory tray also enhances the stability of the tripod.

Included Accessories

This refracting telescope setup is complete with a smartphone adapter, one 25mm Plossl eyepiece, a red dot viewfinder, downloadable software (follow the link below), a 2" 90° diagonal, and a built-in dew shield to slow moisture build up on the objective lends and ambient light interference.
