Larger telescopes, like an 8" or larger, reveal the finer details in resolved celestial objects, such as nebulae or galaxies, which smaller aperture scopes cannot provide. The Explore Scientific Newtonian 208 mm f/3.9 with Carbon Fiber Tube will surprise you with the sharp details you can observe in many Messier Objects.

The Explore Scientific Carbon Fiber Newtonian allows this larger primary mirror, with faster aperture ratio compared to the usual 8" f/4 for deeper shots with the same exposure time. The completely redesigned secondary mirror mechanism ensures easy and optimal collimation. The large 80mm secondary mirror offers optimal field illumination. This amazing scope includes a high quality 2" focuser with 10:1 reduction; cradle rings with vixen style dovetail rail and carrying handle with option for mounting a camera or other accessory. The Newtonian Carbon Fiber scope also achieves a lighter weight (compared to the aluminum Bresser version) and a virtually nonexistent focus drift during long exposures.
