AR102 Air-Spaced Doublet Achromatic Refractor

The Explore Scientific AR Series telescopes are classic air-spaced, crown-and-flint, doublet achromatic f/6.5 refractors with a superior-class optical figure. This 102mm (4-inch) aperture telescope is super-portable and makes a very affordable high-quality grab-and-go telescope. The optical tube assembly makes an excellent primary telescope, but can also be used as a guide scope or super-finder for larger telescopes. 

Designed to handle the rigors of public star parties and educational outreach, the Explore Scientific AR Series telescopes come with heavy-duty, high quality components, including a 2" dual-speed Crayford-style focuser, a one-piece 2" diagonal with 99% dielectric coatings, an 8 X 50 non-illuminated straight -thru finderscope and quick release bracket, and a cradle ring assembly with Vixen-style dovetail mount. Just add a few eyepieces and the alt-azimuth or equatorial mount of your choice and you'll be ready to discover the Universe!
