Why Buy From Stella Scopes

The AR152 (six-inch) model, is a classic air-spaced, crown-and-flint doublet achromatic refractor, and it provides the brightest images and highest resolution of the AR Series. Our goal was to provide an extreme value by providing true diffraction-limited optics at a price that will allow more people to explore the sky with a wide-field (f/6.5) large aperture refractor. Images of deep sky objects are stunning at low powers and all at a small fraction of the price you would pay for a similar aperture apochromat refractor. 

At high power, the moon, planets, and double stars are revealed in sharp, high contrast. 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 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. This amazing viewing package also comes included with the state of the art EXOS2GT Mount!

This German Equatorial mount is equipped with motors on both axes, allowing the mount to track astronomical objects accurately. The precision gears and dual bearings allow operation with a minimum of backlash on all nine slewing speeds.

A simple 1, 2 or 3 star alignment is necessary to orient the scope for tracking and finding objects. The convenient hand controller has GoTo function controls with 272,994 object database making this affordable mount accurate and reliable.

The mount has a solid 2" stainless steel tube tripod with excellent stability and can be loaded with 28 lbs of astronomy equipment.

The included 12V battery pack can be conveniently attached to the eyepiece tray and requires 8 "D" size batteries.
