Bresser Messier AR 102 Telescope with Exos 2 EQ 5 Mount
The Bresser Messier AR 102 Telescope with Exos 2 EQ 5 Mount consists of a refracting telescope (refractor) and an equatorial mount including tripod.
The telescope has a free aperture of 102mm with a focal length of 1000mm and as a result, has a focal ratio of F9.8. The refractor has many extras, such as pipe clamps with handle and an integrated camera mount, 50.8mm Diagonal or illuminated 8x50 finder.
In the equatorial (also called parallactic) EXOS-2 mount is an axis aligned to Polaris. When tracking a celestial object, you only have a single axis to move.
With the supplied 8x50 finder scope it allows celestial objects to be found easily. With two mechanical fine drive flexible shafts, the telescope allows the objects to be aligned precisely in the eyepiece. The sturdy tubular steel tripod is height adjustable, ensuring a comfortable viewing position.
The Bresser Messier AR-102 on EXOS-2 offers the ambitious amateur astronomers a good look with a very stable universal mount. The 102mm aperture telescope is ideal for detailed observation of the moon and the planets of our solar system. In addition, the telescope gathers enough light to continue to look into the night sky. Star clusters or nebulae are easily observed in a range of dark skies.
With a total weight of about 20 kilos which is composed of three parts (tube, mount with counterweight and tripod), the telescope is still perfectly suitable for use outside of the bright city.
