    Explore Scientific FirstLight 80mm Refractor
    with EXOS EQ3 Nano Mount

    This 80 mm Explore Scientific FirstLight refractor is an excellent tool to help amateur astronomers navigate lunar details ranging from the Moon's craters to rilles, planetary features from Saturn and Jupiter, and deep sky celestial objects like nebulae and clusters. The aperture is great for capturing views of deep sky objects and the doublet design minimizes chromatic aberrations.

    Included Accessories

    This refracting telescope setup is complete with a smartphone adapter, one 25mm Plossl eyepiece, a red dot viewfinder, a 90° diagonal, and a built-in dew shield to slow moisture build up on the objective lends and ambient light interference.
