As expected, the Ha was very strong with this nebula, but SII and OIII were even weaker than I thought they would be. But I am still happy with how it turned out. I included my old Celestron NexStar 8SE capture near the end of this video for a comparison. Here is more info on […]

In this video, I’m ‘unboxing’ an already opened Explore Scientific ED102 Carbon Fiber APO Triplet Refracting Telescope and taking a look at what comes in the box, what to expect, and some notable features of this great piece. Specs: Model Number ES-ED10207-01 Telescope Series Explore ED Air-Spaced Triplets Telescope Optical Design Refractor Refractor Design Apochromat […]

Unboxing of my Explore Scientific 68 Degree Ar WP 28mm 2inch eyepiece.

The Explore Scientific ED80CF is a tiny little refractor weighing in at only 5 lbs and is only 15 inches long with the dew shield retracted! This small 80mm telescope excels at delivering very widefield views and widefield images, but can be used for other purposes also. The telescope is great for birding, or to […]

In this episode, I will be unboxing my brand new Explore Scientific ED 102 as part of my series in my quest to put together my beginner astrophotography gear. In my previous video, I unboxed a Celestron Advanced VX mount: https://youtu.be/brOGKSziPFs My first impression is that this telescope looks very impressive in build quality. The […]

The Explore Scientific ED102CF telescope brings a nice balance of weight and light gathering power. This is a modest, 102mm air-spaced triplet refractor that will deliver excellent color correction for visual use or astrophotography. The refracting telescope design is well known to provide contrast and detail when observing the night sky and this telescope is […]

The Explore Scientific David H. Levy Comet Hunter is a 152mm, f/4.8 Maksutov-Newtonian. A rare design, the Maksutov-Newtonian corrects for much of the coma inherent in Newtonian reflectors, and also allows the telescope to hold collimation very well. The telescope at f/4.8 provides stunning views of stars clusters, nebulae, galaxies and galaxy clusters. The telescope […]

Take a look at one of the best telescopes for under $200, one of the simplest telescopes to use, and one of the best telescopes to give as a gift. (I am not associated with Explore Scientific, I just really like their telescopes).

While we were at the Observatory B&B with Jack Newton, he wanted to talk about his experience with the Explore Scientific 9mm 120 Degree Eyepiece that he uses on his Meade 16-inch LX200. Even though Jack says that he is unable to see the entire 120 degree apparent field of view, it remains one of […]

A 3″ eyepiece? Why!?! This incredible true 3″ eyepiece is the Explore Scientific 30mm 100º Series Argon Purged Waterproof Eyepiece and it provides mindblowing wide open views on telescopes with large 3″ focusers. https://telescopes.net/store/explore-scientific-30mm-100-argon-purged-waterproof-eyepiece-3.html

The AR127 http://amzn.to/2hA8gaB from Explore Scientific is a midrange refractor designed for someone looking for a good visual scope with very good optics for the price. In this video we take a good look at the scope. Is it right for you? For more information on this telescope, check out the article on my website […]
