Bresser Messier AR-102L/1350 EXOS-1/EQ4 telescope - a classical, long focal ratio 4" (102mm) aperture achromatic refractor, which will offer excellent views of the Moon and brighter planets and has the unobstructed aperture to deliver very good performance when observing brighter deep sky objects as well. Featuring the "snap to focus" thatrefractors are famed for, this instrument is a joy to use and has some features that really make it stand out from the opposition. Firstly, the Hexafoc hexagonal profile focuser is class leading and ensures that there's no chance of decentring or focuser sag - no matter what way the telescope is pointed in the sky. This focuser features a generous 2.5" internal aperture and comes with an extension tube, which must be fitted to the focuser in order to use it visually. Remove this extension tube and the telescope is free to be used in prime focus astrophotographic position for connection of DSLRs, which can be attached directly to the T-2 male thread around the telescope's 2" to 1.25" adpater ring (supplied).
The extra-long focal length ratio (F/13.2) this telescope offers incredible sharpness and contrast, but extremly low chromatic abberation for an Achromatic refractor. The telescope is also supplied with a standard 6x30mm finderscope, for precise pointing and also comes with a good quality 1.25" 26mm Super Plossl eyepiece (a distinct step up in optical quality over the ordninary standard modified achromatic eyepiecces supplied with most telescopes) and a standard 1.25" star diagonal.
The Bresser Exos-1 Mount is a German Equatorial design which can safely support payloads of up to 7kgs for visual use. The Exos-1 mount is ideal for supporting tlescopes of the aperture and focal length of the Bresser Messier 102L/1350 and can also be motorised in RA in order to keep objects in the field of view once found. In standard manual configuration, the mount is supplied with two flexible control cables, which allow the user to make precise manual adjustment using the geared RA and Dec axes. The mount's saddle plate takes a standard Vixen-profile dovetail fitting, menign that a wealth of other telescopes and accessories could potentially be fitted to it.
