Explore Scientific AR127 Planetary Telescope Set


Dive deeper into the night sky

Refractor telescopes (as opposed to reflector-type telescopes) offer high contrast that's great for viewing planets, but they really shine when viewing the beautiful, mysterious deep-sky objects that many astronomers dream of. The AR127 from Explore Scientific is a great first serious refractor for astronomers who want to search out the more illusive night sky objects like nebulae and globular clusters.

The Explore Scientific AR127 Air-Spaced Doublet is a classic air-spaced, crown-and-flint, doublet achromatic refractor, reborn with the aim to produce superior-class optical figure in a short (f/6.5) focal length design. With the AR127, you will be impressed by the stunning images revealed to you at the eyepiece – all at a fraction of the price you’d pay for a comparably sized telescope.

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 precision focuser.
