Explore Scientific FirstLight AR102 Refractor


Whether you're interested in examining the details of our solar system, or would rather investigate some impressive deep sky phenomena, Explore Scientific's multi-faceted FirstLight™ series contains a telescope package to fit your observing needs. This specific package comes with an AR102 f/6.5 White Tube Refractor with Twilight Nano alt-az mount, 25 mm Plossl eyepiece, and red dot finder. Additionally, a smartphone adapter is included for sharing the spectacular view in your eyepiece remotely. With FirstLight™, a desire to learn is the only prerequisite.

Explore Scientfic Twilight Nano Alt-Az Mount


Explore Scientific Twilight Nano Alt-Az Mount Head and Tripod for FirstLight™ series telescopes. Features sturdy 1.25" stainless steel legs that extend from 25.5" to a maximum height of 45". Included handle enables smooth movements. For accepting more diminutive scopes such as small Maksutov-Cassegrains, refractors, and solar scopes, as well as the ED80, quickly and without difficulty, the lightweight Twilight Nano alt-azimuth mount is the way to go. Short, fast Newtonian telescopes also adapt well to the Twilight Nano. So long as your telescope is not over 14 lbs. and uses a Vixen-style Universal Dovetail bar to mount the optical tube to the mount head, you'll be fine.
