Home Telescopes Bresser Telescopes Bresser Refractor Telescopes Bresser Messier AR-102S EXOS-1 Refractor Telescope
The Bresser Messier AR-102s/600 is a high quality short focus achromatic refractor 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 maintenance 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. Delivery is normally 2-3 business days with this product.
The AR-102s boasts a superb 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.Bresser Messier AR-102s/600 EXOS-1/EQ4 Overview: 102mm achromatic refractor with stable mountD: 102mm; F: 600mm; F/D: F/6Equatorial EXOS-1 Mount for up to 7 kgOptional tracking motor availableIncluded: Messier AR-102S, EXOS-1, Acc.Excellent focuser with 65mm diameterSteel tube tripod for maximum rigidityRigid aluminium handle with camera supportOptimized finder bracket for comfortable useBubble level for easy tripodSpecifications:- Excellent focuser with 65mm diameter - Bubble level for easy tripod setup - 6x30 straight through viewfinder with reticle - optimized finder socket for comfortable use - Cradle rings with handle and integrated piggyback camera holder (1/4 thread) - Dovetail plate with stainless steel rail - 50.8mm (2) to 31.7mm (1,25) adapter with integrated T2 thread (T2-adapter ring for your camera is needed)What's in the box: 26mm Super Plössl eyepiece (31.7mm / 1.25") integrated 31.7 mm and T2 adapter adapter for 50.8 mm (2") mounting ring (for EXOS and similar mounts) handle with camera holder 6x30 Viewfinder astronomy PC software Stellarium Telescope book rotatable star map EXOS 1 German equatorial mount with steel tube field tripod
