Bresser Messier AR-102s/600 EXOS-1 Telescope

SKU: 4702607

The Bresser Messier AR-102s/600 EXOS-1/EQ4 is a high quality short focus achromatic refractor ably mounted on the excellent Exos-1 German equatorial mount and tripod.   This is a very good choice for those who want an excellent starter scope, or as an upgrade from a beginner's telescope.  This telescope is a maintainence free, no fuss instrument, excelling at widefield deep sky observations, but also providing pleasing views of the Moon and brighter planets too.  It comes complete with the ultra-stable, yet highly portable Exos-1 mount and accessories such as a 1.25" star diagonal, 26mm Bresser Plossl eyepiece and 6x30 finderscope.  The tube is supported on the mount via tube rings, including a carry handle (with piggyback camera platform) and a Vixen profile dovetail for quick mounting the the equatorial head.


The ace up the sleeve of the AR-102s is its focuser - the highly regarded Hexfocus system, whose hexagonal cross section and bearings support the inner drawtube no matter what orientation the telescope is at.  Its low profile rack and pinion system offers higher loading capacity than equivalent instrument's Crayford-style focusers - especially when the telescope is pointed at high altitude.
