Whether you’re looking to delve into the details of our solar system or explore inspiring deep sky treasures, the versatile FirstLight telescope series has an observing package that will fit your individual needs. Each of the combinations in this new line comes complete with all of the essentials: a telescope, an eyepiece and a red dot viewfinder. Telescope offerings include achromatic refractor telescopes ranging in aperture from 70mm to 152mm, Maksutov-Cassegrains from 100mm to 152mm, and Newtonian reflector telescopes from 114mm to an impressive 203mm.
Mounts vary from a simple fork-mounted alt-azimuth option to a complete GOTO tracking system. As an added benefit, each package includes an adapter that allows you to use your smartphone to easily capture and share the beauty unfolding in your eyepiece. With Firstlight the only thing you need to provide is a desire to discover.
FirstLight N130mm White Tube Newtonian telescope with 600mm focal length f/4.6 telescope with 40mm draw tube focuser; Plossl 25mm eyepiece; and Red-dot Finder; Smartphone Camera adapter.
The Explore FirstLight Twilight Nano is a light-duty alt-azimuth mount and tripod designed to quickly and easily accept small scopes, such as a small Mak-Cassegrain, small Refractor or small Solar Scope and of course, the ED80mm. Lightweight. Short, fast Newtonians will also match up nicely with the Explore Scientific Twilight Nano mount. As long as your telescope does not exceed 14 pounds and has a 45mm wide (Vixen-Style) Dovetail plate for mounting the telescope to the mount head, you are good to go.
The metal tripod with 1.25″ diameter legs, continuously extend from 25.5″ to 45″ to allow for convenient telescope height from child to adult. The alt-azimuth head’s handle gives you full control for very smooth movements and for locking the altitude position. Light and quick to set up, the Explore FirstLight Twilight Nano is perfect for your grab-and-go telescope tube assembly.
