I recently picked up a Explorer Scientific AR102 f/6.5 Refractor Telescope. I first purchased a new one from B&H Photo but when I received the package it was very used and ended up returning it. If you buy one of these; do not buy it from B&H Photo.
Either buy it new from Explorer Scientific or you can get a nice Silver Grade from High Point. After I returned the one that was suppose to be new from B&H Photo; Dave from High Point helped me out and I ended up getting the Silver Grade from them. This is really a new telescope and all that was wrong with it was a little tiny scuff mark on the tube. For 293.00 that was not bad since this scope new cost 419.00.
