This fast 5" f/5 achromatic refractor from Bresser (by Explore Scientific) will introduce you to a plethora of Earth's most influential neighbors! Drop by Saturn, and see its famous rings with your own two eyes, or visit Jupiter, which 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 127mm 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 5" refractor.

The Messier 127mm telescope uses a two-element, air-spaced crown & flint glass objective as its light-gathering source. The short focal length (635mm) of this AR-127 will give you wider fields of view, a perfect option should you desire to do some astro-imaging. The optics are fully anti-reflection coated for contrast and sharpness. 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 with 1.25" adapter is included with this telescope. A Bresser 1.25" diagonal is standard, and you'll also receive a 25mm 1.25" eyepiece!

A one-piece tube ring assembly cradles the optical tube, and makes mounting your Messier 127mm 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.

You will be pleased with the additional accessories that come standard with the Bresser Messier 127 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.
