Designed and built for beginners, the Explore Scientific FirstLight 102mm f/9.8 Alt-Az Refractor Telescope
offers a complete observation rig for viewing the Moon, planets, meteor
showers, and bright deep-sky objects. The optics are fully multi-coated
with anti-reflection coatings to reduce light loss and produce brighter
and clearer images with more accurate colors versus non-coated systems.
The scope features a manual alt-azimuth mount with dual-axis
control cables that allow users to track objects as they move across the
night sky. Its stainless steel tripod provides a stable observation
platform, and its adjustable height from 38.5 to 55.5" allows for
comfortable viewing by most users. Explore Scientific includes several
observational accessories including a 25mm eyepiece that yields 40x, a
90° star diagonal to put the user's head in a comfortable viewing angle,
a universal smartphone eyepiece adapter for easy astrophotography, and a
wide-field unmagnified red-dot finderscope.
