Explore Scientific has created this all inclusive telescope package, so that a new astronomer doesn't need to add anything besides an enthusiasm for exploring space.
The First Light AR90mm has a little larger aperture than the AR70mm resulting in brighter images. The focal length of 500mm gives this scope a medium focal ratio, f/5.5, which means the field of view is very comfortable and useful.
Affixed atop the included Alt/AZ "U" Yoke mount and Aluminum tripod, it will be steady enough to see sharp images of celestial objects. It comes with a 1.25" draw tube focuser and a 1.25" erect imaging diagonal, which makes it comfortable for the viewer and makes the telescope excellent for terrestrial viewing as well. The 1.25" K9 and K20 eyepieces and the HD119 red-dot finder increase the versatility of this instrument.
Finally, you'll be able to capture stunning images using the smartphone camera adapter.
