Explore Scientific FirstLight 80mm Refractor with EQ3 Mount - FL-AR80900EQ3
Explore Scientific FirstLight 80mm Refractor
with EXOS EQ3 Nano Mount
This Explore Scientific FirstLight refractor is an excellent guide to lunar details ranging from the Moon's craters to rilles. It also will treat users to planetary features from Saturn and Jupiter and deep sky celestial objects like nebulae and clusters.
The 80mm aperture is great for capturing views of deep sky objects and the doublet design, a pair of glass lenses separated by a cushion of air, minimizes chromatic aberrations.
The EXOS Nano mount is a light-duty German equatorial mount with flexible slow motion controls. The slow motion controls and the mount design mean that the users can smoothly and manually track objects as they move through the night sky.
The mount can hold up to 15lb of equipment.
The included tripod is full size 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.
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 90° diagonal, and a built-in dew shield to slow moisture build up on the objective lends and ambient light interference.Downloadable Software
