Designed for intermediate users, the Explore Scientific FirstLight AR80mm f/11 Refractor Telescope
is intended to take astronomic observation to the next level by
providing a complete setup for viewing the Moon and planets. Its manual
equatorial mount has precise Right Ascension (RA) and Declination
indicators to find your subjects and dual slow-motion cables for
tracking. As a more advanced mount, it allows users to find just about
any visible object by just knowing its celestial coordinates. After the
scope has been properly polar aligned, and the subject found, it can be
easily tracked by making slight adjustments to the RA axis.
adjustable-height stainless steel tripod provides a stable platform for
sky watching. The included red-dot finder makes polar-alignment faster
and is an essential tool for quick observations and star-hopping
navigation. An included 90° star diagonal makes looking through the
scope more comfortable, especially when aiming the telescope toward the
zenith. The 25mm eyepiece yields a moderate 36x magnification, and with
the included smartphone adapter that sleeves over the eyepiece, users
can easily take and share images or video through the scope.
