Explore Scientific 152mm f/6.5 Air-Spaced Achromatic Doublet Refractor Telescope


The classic air-spaced, crown-and-flint, doublet achromatic refractor has been resurrected with the goal of producing top-of-the-line optics in a short focal length design with Explore Scientific's Doublet AR series. With its larger aperture the 6" AR152 takes in an extra 44% more light than the 5" AR127 model, allowing for more intense images at higher resolution. The Explore Scientific AR152 provides true diffraction-limited optics at a low enough cost to afford more astronomy enthusiasts the opportunity to explore the night sky with a wide-field refractor with a large aperture.

Sharp, high contrast views of the moon and planets are exposed when the AR152 is used at high power, while at low power, deep sky objects reveal themselves in stunning detail. Created to hold up under the burden of public star parties and educational outreach, the Explore Scientific AR127 features heavy-duty, superior quality accessories, including a 2" dual-speed Crayford focuser, 2" diagonal with 99% dielectric coatings, 8x50 straight finderscope and bracket, and tube rings with Vixen-style dovetail. All you need are a few eyepieces and you'll be ready to explore the heavens!
