Explore Scientific FirstLight AR127mm White Tube Refractor

With Twilight 1 Alt-Azimuth Mount

Whether you enjoy exploring the planets or prefer to capture deep sky objects, the Explore Scientific AR127mm will show you the way. This scope features a straightforward manual alt-azimuth mount, perfect for beginners or for quick observation sessions. This telescope includes everything you need to enjoy your observations and share it with friends. Explore Scientific has included a 25mm eyepiece, diagonal, red dot finder, tripod, and even a smartphone adapter so you can capture photos and videos using your phone's camera.

The AR127 boasts impressive multi-coated optics that produce brighter images with enhanced contrast. Anti-reflection coatings prevent light loss and chromatic aberrations. Enjoy clear, stunning views of planets, the Moon, and even brighter deep-sky objects.

The Twilight 1 Alt-Azimuth mount provides simple, hassle-free OTA mounting. This single-arm fork mount features dual-axis slow-motion tracking cables for precise movements. The Vixen-style dovetail saddle enables fast detachment.

Astro-imaging is also simplified with the included smartphone adapter. This adapter allows you to capture images and videos in your telescope's eyepiece with just your smartphone's camera. This scope gives you not only spectacular views of nearby celestial objects but gives you an affordable option to get started in astrophotography.

A 25mm eyepiece is included with the First Light OTA as well, to give you wide-field, 48x magnified views. The 90° star diagonal allows you to observe from a comfortable position, preventing neck and shoulder strain and keeping you behind the eyepiece for longer. The included Explore Scientific tripod features an adjustable height of 38.5" - 55.5" (977.9mm - 1409.7) and even includes an accessory tray to keep your eyepieces, filters, and other accessories close at hand.
