The Night Sky Planisphere

The"Night"Sky™ is the original two-sided planisphere (also called a star dial or star chart) uniquely designed to reduce distortion and printed on a light background for night readability.  The Night Sky™ is die cut for specific latitudes, to provide the truest view of the starry night based upon where the viewer is watching the sky.  If you choose this gift, you'll need to provide your latitude range. There are different versions of this planishere: large and small, and plastic and cardboard. You will receive the most valuable one, the large one made of plastic. It will last for years. Find out more here.

Sky Atlas for Small Telescopes and Binoculars

Most star atlases are designed for use with 6 to 8 inch telescopes. This sky atlas provides a quality resource for use with starter or intermediate telescopes and binoculars. There is so much to learn about the night sky, and mastering your telescope using this resource will give you a solid foundation. Find out more here.

Night Reader Pro Astronomer's Flashlight

The Night Reader Pro™ is designed specifically for astronomers. The red light it emits will not deplete your night vision like a white light will.  With adjustable brightness it can be bright enough for walking around a dark site and dimmed down to a comfortable level for reading a chart or atlas. It comes with a lifetime factory warranty and is made in the U.S.A. Find out more here.

Nice Apo and a Real Value

I bought this scope for an industrial client whose needs are industrial, not astronomical, and this Explore Scientific ED127 is intended to be a beam expander in various Interferometric testing setups. For this, optical quality must be high and the carbon fiber tube is a plus for thermal stability. My purchase of the Explore Scientific ED127 F7.5 APO Triplet through Telescope Space was straightforward and pleasant. Ryan made sure everything was smooth.
Upon receipt I tested the scope by looking at a power pole 700 feet away, one that I have used for many such tests. The star test from the insulator glints was good – the focus snap was crisp, the in-focus diffraction blur was round with a faint first ring. I did not look at the through focus balance with a narrow passband filter as it was obvious there was no SA3. Color correction is very good as you would expect with the glasses used. There is no color in focus, and only a hint of subtle color fringing in the just out of focus edges of details. Extended details on the pole were rendered as well as, or better than, with any similar scope I have used on this target – this includes TMB, Astrophysics, and Takahashi scopes.
The build quality of the carbon parts is gorgeous. The metal parts are good quality anodized machined. I would prefer machined tube rings as the cast ones supplied are a little chintzy compared to the rest of the scope. The rack and pinion focuser works well, but the feel is not as good as some stock friction focusers I’ve used. Considering the extra high weight capacity of the focuser the feel may be the price paid. Overall I think the mechanical appearance and function is in line with the price.
I would certainly consider the Explore Scientific ED APO FCD100 triplet scopes for my personal use. My transaction with Telescope Space was great and I will do business with them again.

Review on Firstlight AR 102mm f9.8 on EXOS NANO EQ3

A great package for the price! The mount is steady! The Optics excel, in that the resolution and contrast are everything to be expected in a quality refractor! H.B. Appleton, Hi.

The staff at Telescope Space were very supportive and helpful as well!

Explore Scientific Mak Cas 152 with EXOS2GT MOUNT

I did considerable shopping around and finally decided to buy my 152 Mak from Telescope Space. Ryan was very helpful with all my questions concerning Explore Scientific and my specific purchase. After a short period using my scope and mount, the mount seemed to have more play than it should have. Ryan had the Explore Scientific owner call me directly, where he immediately offered to exchange my mount. He also had the factory ship out the new mount while I was still using my original unit. Excellent service and sales support from both Ryan at Telescope Space and Explore Scientific. I will buy again from Telescope Space!

Monocular

Very clear, I am impressed for $38
