What a great introductory telescope for deep-sky observing! The Explore Scientific 4.5" short-tube Newtonian telescope offers enough light-gathering to see bright galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters as well as solar system favorites like Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, the Moon and more! With a 500mm focal length and fast f/4.3 focal ratio, you will find this Newtonian to be portable and capable of displaying wide-field images of the night sky.
The Explore FirstLight 114mm Newtonian comes with the Twilight Nano Alt-Azimuth Mount. You can see a picture of the mount alone as well as a close-up of the telescope and mount head. The single-fork arm design of the Twilight Nano makes quick work of moving the telescope around the sky and the included red-dot finder helps you pinpoint the location of your favorite objects.
You will also receive a 25mm Plossl 1.25" eyepiece and a Smartphone camera adapter, which allows you to use your Smartphone to capture images of objects as seen through the eyepiece.
