Explore Scientific AR102 Air-Spaced Doublet Refractor DAR102065-01
The Explore Scientific AR Air-Spaced Doublet Series telescopes are classic air-spaced, crown-and-flint, doublet Achromatic f/6.5 refractors with a superior-class optical figure. With the AR102 (4-inch), you will be impressed by the stunning images revealed to you at the eyepiece. These Telescopes are available to you at a small fraction of the price you'd pay for a comparably sized Apochromatic refractor, and you'll love the lightweight of this instrument at only 11.5 lbs.
Designed to handle the rigors of public star parties and educational outreach programs, the Explore Scientific AR Series telescopes come with heavy-duty, high-quality components, including a 2-inch Two-Speed Crayford Focuser with Compression, a 99% Reflective Dielectric-Coated 2-inch Diagonal Mirror with 1.25-inch Eyepiece Adapter, an 8X50 non-illuminated straight-thru finder scope and quick release bracket, and a cradle ring assembly with 45mm wide dovetail plate (Vixen-style). Just add a few eyepieces and the alt-azimuth or equatorial mount of your choice, and you'll be ready to discover the Universe!
