Product Description

Explore Scientific Firstlight 150mm Newtonian with EXOS2GT Goto Mount

Explore Scientific's versatile FirstLight series comes complete with all of the essentials: a telescope, a sturdy mount, an eyepiece and a red dot viewfinder.  This package features a 150mm Newtonian telescope.  Known for their fast optical systems, this 6" Newtonian has an f/5 focal ratio which provides a wider field of view than a SC, Maksutov or refractor of the same aperture.  Image exposure times are also greatly reduced allowing you to get more out of your nightly imaging sessions.  Newtonians also have the benefit of being very lightweight keeping this telescope highly portable.  

The SkyTracker kit includes the hand controller unit, and right ascension and declination motors. Its hand controller has a database of more than 272,000 objects with the ability for users to input custom coordinates and favorites. With a slew speed of 2°/second and nine tracking speeds, the SkyTracker can accurately keep near and deep-sky objects such as the Moon, planets, galaxies, and nebulae centered in your eyepiece for long exposure imaging and astrophotography or prolonged observation sessions.

The tripod is built with large 2" diameter stainless steel legs and tight tolerances to reduce vibration for clearer viewing. A center stabilizer bar pulls the accessory tray up to lock the legs in place, adding further rigidity and vibration reduction. It is adjustable from 26.8 to 42.5" to accommodate a wide range of users and features large thumbscrews for tool-free adjustment in the field. An adjustable tray is also included with the tripod to keep eyepieces, flashlights, and other accessories safe and at the ready. Rounding out the included accessories is a 25mm eyepiece, a universal smartphone holder for capturing images through the eyepiece, and an unmagnified red-dot finder.
