Bresser Messier 102mm f/9.8 Refractor

 

This classic 4" achromatic refractor from Bresser will introduce you to a plethora of Earth's most influential neighbors! Drop by Saturn, and see his famous rings with your own two eyes, or visit Jupiter, who boasts the largest planet on our solar system's block. If you have a mind to do it, you can get to know the Moon like the back of your hand. With your Messier 102mm telescope, you will be able to tour mountain peaks, valleys, craters, and ancient river beds in a single night. In the mood for a road trip? Leave our neighborhood behind and travel to far-off galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters...vast cities of lights that put New York, Paris, or even Las Vegas to shame! These exotic places are all within reach of a Bresser 4" refractor.

The Messier 102mm telescope uses a two-element, air-spaced crown & flint glass objective as its light-gathering source. The optics are fully anti-reflection coated for contrast and sharpness. This means that images through this telescope will contrast nicely against a dark background sky...like jewels on a black velvet cloth. When you wish to use your Messier telescope during the day to do a little bird-watching or other observations of nature, the colors will be bright and beautiful. To help increase contrast even further, the optical tube assembly has a long dew shield installed. It will help keep dampness off of the lenses when you're observing at night as well, which is a bonus.

A 2" rack and pinion focuser is included with this telescope. The draw tube is etched with a millimeter scale to help with repeatable focusing performance, and the focuser is made with brass compression rings so that accessory barrels are not marred by a rogue set-screw. A Bresser 2" diagonal is standard, and you'll also receive a 25mm 70° 2" eyepiece! The focuser does come with a 1.25" eyepiece adapter should you wish to add 1.25" eyepieces or other accessories to your bag of telescope tricks.

A one-piece tube ring assembly cradles the optical tube, and makes mounting your Messier 102mm telescope a breeze. At the top of the tube ring, you'll find a built-in carry handle that is designed with the ability to attach a DSLR camera for piggyback astrophotography. At the bottom of the assembly is a stainless steel rail that slides into Vixen-style mounts, such as the Meade LXD75.

You will be pleased with the additional accessories that come standard with the Bresser Messier 102 mm telescope. In order to help you find objects more easily, an 8 X 50 LED-illuminated finder scope and bracket are included. The finder bracket attaches easily to the rear portion of the tube, and is removable for telescope storage should you wish to do so. A rotatable star map, also called a planisphere, a map of the moon, and Stellarium PC Software round out the package.
