Explore Scientific put their FirstLight 127mm f/9.4 Achromatic GoTo Refractor with EXOS-2GT Mount includes
a tripod and observing accessories to provide users with a complete
observational package ideal for exploring the Moon and planets within
our solar system, with the capability to reach out to bright deep-sky
subjects such as star clusters, galaxies, and nebulae. The
refractor-style optical tube has a large 127mm (5") aperture configured
with an achromatic lens system to correct chromatic and spherical
aberration which translates to crisp and clear images with true color
rendition with little distortion at the edges. Complementing this
optical configuration, are fully multi-coated optics that increase light
transmission to allow users to see distant objects better and increase
details of objects within the solar system.
The SkyTracker kit
includes the hand controller unit, and right ascension and declination
motors. Its hand controller has a database of more than 272,000 objects
with the ability for users to input custom coordinates and favorites.
With a slew speed of 2Â°/second and nine tracking speeds the SkyTracker
can accurately keep near and deep sky objects such as the Moon, planets,
galaxies, and nebulae centered in your eyepiece for long exposure
imaging and astrophotography or prolonged observation sessions.
tripod is built with large 2" diameter stainless steel legs and tight
tolerances to reduce vibration for clearer viewing. A center stabilizer
bar pulls the accessory tray up to lock the legs in place adding further
rigidity and vibration reduction. It is adjustable from 26.8 to 42.5"
to accommodate a wide range of users and features large thumbscrews for
tool-free adjustment in the field. An adjustable tray is also included
with the tripod to keep eyepieces, flashlights, and other accessories
safe and at the ready. Rounding out the included accessories is a 25mm
eyepiece, a 90Â° star diagonal for comfortable viewing, a universal
smartphone holder for capturing images through the eyepiece, and an
unmagnified red-dot finder.
