    The Explore Scientific Carbon Fiber Newtonian allows this larger primary mirror, with faster aperture ratio compared to the usual 8" f/4 for deeper shots with the same exposure time. The completely redesigned "click-fix" secondary mirror mechanism ensures easy and optimal collimation. The large 80mm secondary mirror offers optimal field illumination. This amazing scope includes a high quality 2" focuser with 10:1 reduction; cradle rings with vixen style dovetail rail and carrying handle with option for mounting a camera or other accessory. The Newtonian Carbon Fiber scope also stands out with a lighter weight compared to the aluminum Bresser version and a virtually nonexistent focus drift during long exposures.
